Thrifty Threads 365 is a fashion challenge where I will only thrift shop for an entire year. I’ll show you how it’s easy and wallet friendly to satisfy your style needs with secondhand finds. For full details {plus how you can get involved} check the original post here

We’re a week in to the Thrifty Threads 365 challenge and it’s off to an amazing start. Last week I showed you my outfit post {less than $20 for a head to toe look} and this week it’s all about how to survive the challenge, because let’s face it, giving up new clothes for a full year can be kinda tough.
This is my third time doing Thrifty Threads 365, so here are a few tips and tricks to keep your sanity while giving up clothes for an extended period of time.
Check out the short video below for 3 tips to survive Thrifty Threads 365. Yup, I made a video {finally!}.

As I mentioned in the video, if you’re joining the challenge, don’t forget to tag your photos with #ThriftyThreads365 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. So far we have close to 100 photos tagged! Tagging the pics doesn’t just let me know who’s joining TT365, but it also creates a sense of community and even some style inspiration.
Are you joining Thrifty Threads 365? How long are you doing the challenge, the full year or a few months? What’s been your biggest challenge so far? What’s been your best thrift store score?

    AWESOME VIDEO! And YES I am joining you for one full 365! I’m gonna commit for several reasons. I am a big thrifter so I don’t think it will be a big issue but it will definitely challenge me not purchase items when I am picking up items in Target…whew!!! That will definitely be a challenge. Anyway I am gonna do this thing! Oh and I am always scoring at the thrift store. My most recent is YSL blazer for $12 on an online thrift boutique. Ill post pics soon! Again, Thanks

    Great tips, especially the shop yoru closet one. I have tons of pieces I haven’t worn but they’re perfectly fine! I’m doing the challenge for 3 months.
