All good things must come to an end. Bah humbug! I am totally bummed out because Rag Days are over.
Before I retired, I HATED Mondays! But ever since I discovered Rag Days at the SA thrift store I couldn’t wait for Monday morning. On Rag Days, all dresses and skirts were only $3, all blouses and shirts were $2, and all women’s slacks were only $1. It was great because I could buy enough stock for the week – sometimes buying 50-60 items. I didn’t have to drive around looking for product to resell. This saved me both time and gas.
So imagine my surprise when I walked into the store today and discovered NO rag day specials! Instead, they were having 40%-off-entire-store. I decided to rethink my buying strategy and look around. I found a few things – of course – but I was really disappointed when the sales clerk said the manager decided to discontinue Rag Day Mondays. Boohoo!!
As I thought about all this, I remembered the SA by my house sometimes had clothing specials on Monday. It’s a much smaller store and the selections are limited, but my spirits were lifted when I walked into the store! They were having a $1 sale on all their clothes (with a few exceptions).
My haul from 2 SA thrift stores
It was already 2:00 p.m. so I wasn’t expecting much. But, right away, I found 2 J. Jill blouses and a Diane Von Furstenberg blouse for only $1 each. I started throwing clothes into my cart and ended up with 4 large bags of clothes. The clerk told me they have this special every Monday! Yea! Even better, it’s only 10 mins. away from my home.
Lot of books from SA for only 10-cents each
I don’t know how much product I’ll find at this smaller store, but for now it’ll be my first stop on Mondays! I’ll be sharing some of my thrifty treasures tomorrow.
Where do you find product to sell? Do you have a routine? Yards sales on Saturdays and thrift stores on another day? Do you look for product in other places (i.e. Big Lots, Costco, etc.)? It would be wonderful if you would share how you manage your time.
