My favorite Ypsi thrift store (so far) is Value World. They had sent out 50% off coupons this month and I got myself all excited to go on Friday! I haven't been in the shopping mood for quite a while because of the money crunch but I had a little bit of room to breathe in my budget and with that coupon, really, I couldn't not go!
I decided that even though it was busy, I would go in, take my time, and not get flustered or too concerned with prices. I slowly went around the perimeter of the store grabbing books first then moving into the household items, shoes and then finally diving into the clothes area.

And you can't see how amazing the velvet blazer is on because I forgot to take a picture of it! Below the jackets, you see four belts that will aid me in attempting to once again be fashionable. I keep seeing things in my closet that could be cute if I had a belt but when I go into fancy stores, I think I look ridiculous with a $12.00 skinny belt. With wild abandon, I grabbed four belts that I thought could work with my wardrobe. There is a black shiny and pale pink skinny belt, a weathered brown weave belt and a green and blue stripped belt that was kind of the wild card.
A few of the other items that are definitely going to be helpful since the return of the snow! Layering is my only armor. There are two gray tops and a brown corduroy and black knit skirt.
All of the clothes were regularly priced $1.20-4.20 with the most expensive things being the velvet jacket and the Abercrombie & Fitch gray knit shirt. With my fabulous coupon, I spent only $16! It is the most I have ever spent here but I was in the thrift store haze, what can I say.
