Summer Thrift Store Shopping Adventure in Conroe ~ Assistance League and Goodwill

I love it when my kids ask to go thrift shopping with me!    We always have the best time together with lots and lots of laughs!

They find a few things that they will wear, some silly gifts for friends, Halloween costumes, books for summer reading and more!

We started out at Assistance League Thrift Store in Conroe ….

Every week there are different sales

  1. One of the things I love about thrift shopping, is that it can be a fun adventure for friends and family to do together. Lots of laughter….’Eeeeewww, who would wear these?’ or ‘Remember this?’ Happy to see you had fun together. And what a smart idea, scoping out the costumes at this time of year.

    • You are so right Sue!!!! That is one of the BEST parts of the day … building new memories and remembering old ones!
      I work on costumes ALL year long! xoxo pippa

  2. I love that you take your kids thrifting! I have started going on special thrift store dates with my daughter (who is 5). We call it “treasure hunting,” and she usually gets to choose one small toy or book. I love teaching her to value second hand goods and saving money, and its wonderful special time we spend together!

    • It is not only treasure hunting but also memory making! They find the funniest things but as you said its teaching them to save money! pippa
