Are You Thrifting Next Year? Take the Thrift Pledge!



Are you taking thrift to the next level in 2011? Do you plan to continue thrifting, junking, and hunting? Take the Thrift Pledge with me! It's easy, just pledge to be more thrifty in 2011.

Add one of the Thrift Pledge Buttons to your blog by copying + pasting the code in the boxes.


























What are YOU doing to be thrifty in 2011?

I'm taking my thrifting to the next level by 1) buying nothing new (with a few necessary exceptions) 2) not buying clothes 3) only buying the lowest deals from estate/yard sales.

Happy New Year! See You in 2011!

  1. My goal is to buy used more all the way around- but I love used furniture and stuff for the house. I collect old typewriters. :)

  2. I had a full year where I only bought secondhand or handmade clothes! I'm trying to extend this philosophy to everything else as well, especially with moving into my first apartment in a few weeks. thanks for the cute buttons!

  3. This is awesome!! Cept I went to use the lil grey and yellow owl and that code brings up a different button...

    But I live the thrift pledge, never buy anything new unless I have to. :) Let me know the correct code for that owl and I'll put him up!

  4. I have been trying to buy more at thrift stores or hand made...not only to save money but I also find that older things are made better- better quality, more attention to detail, etc. I was never purposely trying to do that, I just did it because I'm broke. In 2011 I am definitely going to make an effort to only buy thrifted, second hand, used or hand made items! Thank you for this inspiration!

  7. Erika: I love old typewriters. I stop myself from collecting them or I'd get out of hand! Buy more used, it'll become addictive!

    Teacup A: I commend you, I look forward to my year of buying secondhand only!

    Jamie: Old stuff is definitely better! Unique, and typically better quality. Especially when it comes to furniture!

    Marcia: Thank you! :)

  10. That's an awesome idea. I could never live up to it though, at least not now. Somehow I hardly thrift anymore, I just can't find the right shops anymore:(
    When I was little I always bought secondhand, they had all these kids clothes fairs so it was easier.
    But I will pledge to try and find some good stores;)

    The buttons are very cute!

  11. Oh my, what a pledge. I would love to take part, but will buy more thrift instead of solely as there are far too many things I need that the charity shops just don't stock in good quality, or price. I get a bit mad at some of the prices on cheap items here in London when at new, they would be the same price, or cheaper.

    I might see if I can do a month, then see where it leads. Interesting pledge to think about!!

  12. Considering that am moving later this year and am going to need to save as much money as possible-thrifting seems to be a big part of my future-which is a GREAT thing! :D

  14. Thrifting, upcycling, recycling, reselling, crafting and making do! Totally the penny worthy project plan!! grabbing a badge NOW!!
    Van-have totally enjoyed your blog this year and am so happy I found it! Happy New Year :)

  15. Oh, I really want to try this too! We don't have yard/estate sales around here but I think I can try not buying new stuff unless very very very very necessary. This is exciting! I have quite a few thrifted dresses, top and skirts but the thrifting culture here is not very sound for an entire lifestyle wrapped around it. Not harm trying though!

  17. I am taking the pledge as well! I plan to "thrift" my own home/storage before shopping (be surprised by forgotten items), buy all used clothing for self (including shoes and only when I find a bargain!), and try ReSelling crap I have accumulated over the year (and no longer love)!

    I, too, am enjoying your blog!

  18. this is basically what I do anyway... I have to buy my undies and jeans from chain stores though :)
