‘Thrift ‘ has become a common word that we meet wherever and whenever. Thrifting or simply shopping for used goods (usually applies to fashion items such as sneakers, pants, jeans, jackets, sweaters, and many others) is a habit that is starting to mushroom and is loved by many people, especially young people. Even though it’s used, don’t get me wrong, there are so many benefits that can be obtained from thrifting. The 5 reasons below can be your consideration to start trying to thrift!
1. Saving Expenditures aka Not Making It Wasteful
The number one reason is that it automatically comes to mind when you hear the word ‘thrift’ . Although the price is relatively not as expensive as new items sold at well-known outlets, sometimes there are also thrift items that are quite expensive. Well, if that’s the case, it’s just a matter of going back to each of us. Make sure that what we buy is what we need, don’t just shop wholesale because it’s cheap. Remember, it’s our job after buying the item that is more important!
2. Get used to implementing Sustainable Fashion Consumption which is definitely Environmentally Friendly
Thrifting is one of the most efficient ways to consume fashion and textile goods. Thrift goods are usually the type of fashion that is durable, not time-consuming or slow fashion and not fast fashion items. By purchasing thrift goods, we have contributed to the circulation of fashion items in circulation, thereby reducing costs and reducing the amount of waste used to produce new goods. Wow, isn’t it?!
3. Free Mix and Match Styles That You Really Don’t Market!
Have you ever walked to the mall and accidentally met someone with the same clothes like the clothes you were wearing? Isn’t it annoying that other people have twin clothes with you? If so, you really should start considering switching to thrifting, anyway. Why? Because the world of thrifting is very, very diverse in types, models and colours. So you don’t have to worry if your clothes are flashing, guaranteed, your style will definitely be unique! Not infrequently, when looking for items, it feels like ‘treasure hunting’? If you’re lucky, you can get middle to high branded goods at super affordable prices!
4. Support Local Communities
If there is a thrift shop in your area, you can support them by buying from their shop. Besides being efficient, you can also choose items on the spot, so it doesn’t feel right!
5. Promising Business Idea
It started as a fad and wanted to join the hype, then ended up making money! Who doesn’t want to earn their own income from something that they are really passionate about? If you are a tenacious and painstaking person, try to dive into the world of thrifting. It’s like the saying goes: once you paddle, two or three islands are crossed. Besides being able to mutually change clothes from the sales stock, you can also earn money from it. How, sounds interesting, right?
