It’s no secret I love thrifty shopping. Everyone who knows me knows I love going to the thrift stores. If I could get paid to shop at thrift stores, I would so apply for the job. It’s like a great treasure hunt to me. I never know what I’m going to find.
One of the things I love about thrifty shopping is finding holiday decorations. I love finding unique and decor and it saves me A LOT of money!
Last weekend, I went to the Salvation Army in Rochester Hills, Michigan and I found an assortment of Fall and Halloween-themed decor. It was perfect because I was already planning on buying Fall decorations for my home.
I have a small box of Fall and Halloween decorations from last year, but I wanted to add on to my collection. I found some pieces for as little as 99 cents. I think the most I spent on a decoration was $4.99 plus tax. By purchasing my Fall decor at the thrift store, I ended up saving a great deal of money.
1. Check the holiday section. Most thrift stores have a holiday decor section. I usually find the holiday section near the back of the store. Many people want to get rid of their holiday decorations so they donate their decorations to stores like the Salvation Army and Goodwill.
2. Check the front of the store. From my experience of shopping at thrift stores, I have found that when it is a particular holiday season, such as Fall/Halloween, stores move the majority of their holiday decorations to the front of the store. This is because it is a popular item and they know their customers are looking for it. So when you go to a thrift store, as soon as you walk in the doors, look around the front of the store. You may find shelves with Fall/Halloween decorations near the cash registers.Thrifting Fall decor saves you money on Fall decorations! Click To Tweet
3. Check the art/pictures section. When I was looking through the art and picture section at Salvation Army, I found a few Fall-themed art on the shelves. Sometimes you can also find a piece of art that just goes well with your Fall decor. For instance, I found a print of yellow flowers. It reminded me of the Fall and I had a few other pieces with sunflowers, so I thought it would go well with my Fall theme.
