I'm a big fan of thrifting. I like to frequent CommunityAid and online consignment-based apps like Poshmark or even eBay! Also, Facebook Marketplace has been an awesome place for scoring deals. I ended up getting a microwave and Keurig for $60 total from a guy in Mechanicsburg!
My first purchase from eBay in a long time was for MarioKart for the Wii. I still have my system and never got the game, and since the Nintendo WiiU and Nintendo Switch came out, I couldn't find any worthwhile Wii games at my local Gamestop. I scored the game ( which looked like it was NEVER played ) and a Wii wheel for $23.50...with $3.75 S&H. So for $26.25 I got all of this when the game itself probably would've sold used and in not-so-great condition from Gamestop for $25. Plus, I got another game for $5 in EUC ( aka. Excellent Used Condition ) from another eBay seller.
After that find, I decided to take a look at handbags on eBay and found out that Goodwill of Silicon Valley lets you have the ability to shop their high-end donations online! I bid on a gently used Kate Spade handbag and ended up winning it for $42 with $6 S&H! When I received it, the quality was even better than I expected--it looked like the bag had never been used!
Then yesterday I realized that it was the last day for me to use my $5 anniversary rewards with Kohls, so I got on the app and took a look around. I happened to have a 40% off purchase coupon in my Wallet! I found a super cute pair of slide-on booties for $20.99, but with the discounts came to the low price of $9.59! I paid almost as much just to ship the shit! But even with shipping it's less than $20 which is less than I would've paid for the shoes alone!
Where are some places where you've gotten good deals? What consignment stores/apps are your favorite?
And as always: ya girl be ballin' on a budget 😉
