In the past I too tended to have my eyes primarily on household items. But I am finding necessity to be the mother of invention and am enjoying the journey!
When you find a clean, well-organized thrift store, you are embarking on a "true green experience"! For those of us who are part of a one-income family (and even for those with extra money to spend), thrifting is one of many options to help us live responsibly and wisely.
I'll try not to go overboard on this "thrifting" topic. Please forgive my tangent!
