We had a bit of time to kill before we had to go to our sons’ parent teacher conferences, so my husband suggested we stop at Goodwill.
I was just planning to browse, until I discovered the ultimate thrift store find: ink cartridges.
I found a total of 6 brand new black printer ink cartridges for my HP printer for just $17.97 plus tax. If I had bought those same ink cartridges at full price, I would have easily spent $90 or more!
Between coupons and school projects, we print a lot of things, so I was thrilled to score such a great deal on printer ink. Unfortunately they didn’t have any color cartridges for my printer, so I’ll just have to keep an eye out for sales.
Thrift store shopping can be a lot of fun because you never know what bargains you’ll find. The key to successful thrift store shopping is to make sure you only buy what you need, stick to a budget, and spend some time looking. You just might be pleasantly surprised at the savings.
Your turn: What thrift store finds have you made recently? Go ahead – Brag a little!
