As the years have gone by, the clothes industry and styles have changed tremendously. Every year there is a new trend of clothes and style. This year's trend is everyone is starting to go thrifting.
But the question is what would you rather do? Or what do you do? Would you rather go thrifting or would you rather go to a mall and buy high end clothes? Over the years thrifting has become a big thing. It's been a big hit on the app called Tik Tok; Many people buy thrifted clothes and then post videos of what they got.
There are currently more than 25,000 resale, consignment and not for profit resale shops in the United States. “About 15% of Americans currently save money by shopping at their local thrift store near them.” says needhelppayingbills.com in their article Save Money at Thrift stores.
In my experience of thrifting I've saved lots of money on clothes. I once spent $50 on 10 pairs of pants and then at the mall I got 1 pair of pants for $40 so see right there is a good example on how thrifting saves money. Also you can buy most name brand clothes in a thrift store if you look hard enough.
Now back to my question, would you rather go to a thrift store and buy clothes or go to the mall and buy high end clothes?
