Afternoon of Shopping with Sherry: Volume VI

This is a thrifting edition, from the last two trips I made to the store:

And I wore the skirt and sweater like this!

Then in my second shopping trip, this happened:

Pretty great right?

And if I thrift / donate them back, I am not crying about it. I’ll try and sell them first of course, especially the nice pieces, but … *shrug* No skin off my back.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Sweaters are one of the items thrift stores tend to get in pristine condition at this time of year, as people start doing spring cleaning. Last week I strolled into a thrift here and there was a rack of brand new women’s sweaters from this season with the tags still on–Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic, brands like that. Not bad for between 4 and 10 dollars each. 🙂

      Agreed — this is the time I am sort of looking around for items.
