Works for Me Wednesday

Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you I've found me some pretty good deals. In fact, I like to think of myself as a bargain-hunting expert. When we lived in the big city, bargains were EV-ER-Y-WHERE! From Pottery Barn quilts for $2 to designer duds for under $5, I was constantly on the hunt, even with 4 kids in tow. Until the move. The move to rural VA, where designer duds aren't exactly wardrobe staples. Most people haven't even heard of Pottery Barn! So how do I find my bargains? Well, online of course! Thrifting was so green, but I had to find other outlets to fulfill my passion for green and thrifty besides the Goodwill! Here are some of my favorite online sites to shop green and thrifty:

This one is an obvious choice considering my business....consignment sales on eBay.

Don't buy it at Books A Million if you can find it here! Basically free, fun and saving trees at the same time!

I love the great deals you can get here, and you can still buy used items.

Great non-toxic toys for kids and a loyalty rewards program. 60% of our Christmas came from here.

There's nothing like the rush of finding an unexpected treasure in a thrift store, but these online sites help me stay thrifty and green. If you haven't given them a try, you should!

You sound like my mummy. She can walk into almost any store and find a wonderful deal.

Personally, I hate to shop. So digging for a deal can be tough.
