Can you believe it’s already November? That means two things:
1. Time for chunky knits and fly outerwear.
2. My Thrifty Threads 365 challenge is 10 months down with two more months to go.

For all of 2014, I’ve solely relied on clothes and accessories from the thrift shop. I haven’t spent a single penny on new threads. Oh, and I have a $50 thrift shopping budget each month.

Check out what I bought this month from the thrift store and the total for how much I’ve spent on clothes so far this year.
