Earth day & why I thrift

If you know me, you know I like to thrift.

I love finding a diamond in the rough, an expensive item marked down to nearly free, and treasures that just need a little love.

Very little do items donated get tossed out. Did you know that they even recycle their plastic bags and cardboard boxes that donations come in. 

I buy everything from kitchen items, to clothing, to bags, and books at thrift shops.

A really long time ago I posted on shopping for furniture at thrift stores, and what to look for. If you are interested, you can read that here. 
This earth day I encourage you to take a Green pledge. Pledge to be more thoughtful towards our environment and take efforts to reduce your carbon footprint. I am joining the Greenworks Generation site in helping encourage others. Share your story here as well and take the pledge.  

If you walk through our home, every room has items from thrift shops or antique stores. 
The wooden totes below in our kitchen were both thrifted. 

This "tablecloth" was a denim Ralph Lauren sheet I found at a thrift shop.

For our daughters high school graduation, I painted a globe ...
