Goal accomplished!No, they don’t match but that does not matter to me. What matters to me is that they are soft and not disposable.
I picked up 8 brand new napkins at my local thrift store for 50 cents apiece (can you say bargain). My kids actually like that they are different colors (don’t ask me why). I am thinking about maybe getting a set that “matches” for when company comes over but I just hate to buy new when there is so much perfectly good “used” out there.
During that same thrift store trip I also picked up 6 small juice glasses for the kiddos (no more plastic cups for them), 2 swimsuits for my daughter (1 for home and 1 for daycare), and a pair of baseball pants for my son (I swear they had never even been worn. Not a speck of dirt on them. And they are white.)
It really made me sad to see how many quality items there were at this one store. Just rows upon rows of perfectly good ‘used” items (TVs, games, books, clothes, toys, reusable bags, backpacks, dishes, towels, etc).
I wish the stigma of shopping at thrift stores would just disappear and people would realize the benefits. Shopping at a consignment store or a thrift store or whatever you want to call it not only makes economical sense, it also makes environmental sense.
My advice; grab your reusable bags and head down to your local thrift store to save a tree, save water, save resources & save $!
