- Thrift Kitty (blog)
- Here are five "thrift tips" from Tali Cahill, webmaster at the now-defunct Ottawa Thrift Guide:
- Look around. Those jeans you're looking for might be in the shirts section, or even with the housewares, for that matter.
- When in doubt, forget about it. No matter how cheap an item is, it's not a good deal if you never use it.
- Saturday afternoon is amateur time at the thrifts. Weekday mornings and evenings are less crowded, and the stock is less picked-over.
- The farther, the better. The farther a thrift store is from a trendy neighborhood, the better the deals.
- Generate good thrift karma. Donate your own cast-offs often, and never switch tags, hide items, or shoplift!
