Housing Works Warehouse Sale – How to Prepare

Last week I told you guys that the awesomeness known as the Housing Works “Buy the Bag” warehouse sale is returning. For $25, you get a bag full of clothing. This sale is only held a few times a year, so I can’t tell you how excited I am for it to finally return this Saturday, 7/23. But because I love you guys so much, I want you to be as prepared as possible if it’s your first time attending.

It can be a mad house in there. Though it’s located in a really spacious warehouse, it gets crowded, overheated and a few people can be a bit pushy. No matter what, remain calm and keep an eagle eye out for a thrifted treasure.

Check out the quick video below {it’s less than five minutes} on a few tips to keep in mind if you plan to attend the sale or any major warehouse sale like it.

  1. Thanks for letting us know about groupon. Was on the fence about going but $10 is SOOOO worth the chance of finding something great.
    Question: Will there be shoes and can we stuff those in the bag as well?

  2. Thank you so much for this! I was well prepared for the sale and scored some awesome pieces! My rolling game is tight now! I fit so much into the bag! I bought tickets for other dates! Hope to see you there!
