How to Stock your Spring Closet on a Dime (while giving back to your community!)

Stock your spring closet on a dime

Hey, it’s Donate with Debbie, your thrifting go-to-guide. Spring is the ultimate key transitioning time in every closet. It’s that time of the year when you box up your sweaters and jeans and break out the shorts and tank tops. If you’re dusting off your warmer weather clothes and realizing you’re not the same size you were last year or you’re just tired of that skirt from four years ago, don’t worry. In one easy trip to your local thrift store, you can donate your old clothes and go on a new spring clothes shopping spree that won’t break your piggy bank.

Score Name Brand Clothes at a Fraction of the Price

We’ve got lots of name brand clothes in our thrift stores and sell them much cheaper than what you’d find in the mall. Did you know that 80% of our thrift pastel spring tank top thrift store store is less than $2? The aisles are filled with hidden designer gems, just waiting to be discovered. Best of all, new items are always being added to the sales floor, so there’s a new thrift treasured to discover each time you shop. See how a Columbus fashion blogger found name brand clothes to put together a chic date night outfit for less than $20.

Easily Pair Pastel Colors

Spring is the perfect time for sweet pastel pinks, yellows, oranges, greens and purples. Add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe with a pastel colored dress. Pair it with a complimentary colored cardigan. I love to pair different pastel colors together! Did you know we sort our items by color?

Feel the Sand between your Sandals

Now’s the moment to break out the strappy sandals. You can pick up a new pair of cute and comfortable sandals at the thrift store for less than the cost of a pedicure. I love wedge sandals with floral patterns.spring shoes found at the thrift store

Dressing in Dresses

I love the versatility of dresses. You can pair them with heals and a blazer for a sophisticated look or wear flats and a light cardigan for a lazy Sunday look. Keep your eyes peeled for animal prints, bold patterns, and polka dots.

Stand out with a Statement Bag

No need to shy away from expressing yourself this spring. Show your true colors with a purse that’s as unique as you are. We have tons of one-of-a-kind bags that are both functional and stunning.

As you’re boxing up your winter sweaters and jeans, take a moment to evaluate each piece. Did you wear it this year? Does it fit? Does it bring you joy? If you answer no, then donate it.

When you donate your pre-loved items, the proceeds will go toward helping homeless families, like Darla’s, find housing and supportive services.
