Why: Who doesn’t love stationery? No seriously, besides thrift shopping, my most enjoyable addiction is shopping for new notebooks. I actually had to put myself on hiatus and stop buying cute notebooks and planners from TJ Maxx.
But my hiatus might be up since I found out about Poppin. The brand features tons of colorful notebooks, planners and pads that start at less than $10.

It’s that time of year again. The epic Salvation Army coat sale has returned to New York. The first sale of the season was last month, but the next one is this Saturday, November 1.
Not familiar with the coat sale? Well, it’s the place you need to be if you’re in the tri-state area and need to score serious deals on furs {real and faux}, leathers, bombers, trenches and more. Most coats average $20, so of course the competition is stiff. At past sales I’ve found vintage leather jackets, a mink and a few wool coats and never paid more than $15 for each. I even scored a DSquared parka for $2. Yes, 2 bucks for a coat that was originally close to $1000 {see my receipt below}.
If you plan to attend the Salvation Army {536 West 46th Street} coat sale, here’s what you need to know. Even if you’re not in NYC, you can use these tips when thrift shopping for winter coats.

Remember this vintage gold maxi skirt I thrifted a few weeks ago? I first debuted it on Instagram and I knew I had to have it. At $10, it’s one fifth of my monthly Thrifty Threads 365 shopping budget, but like I said, I had to have it! It’s a maxi, pleated and solid gold. What’s not to love?!

When it comes to such a bold piece, it’s easy to think, “how will I wear this?” Well, I kept the rest of my look minimal and let the skirt steal the show.
