thrift store shopping

Christmas time is a wonderful opportunity to find creative eco friendly solutions as a family. Real Mom Daily has created a family friendly countdown to a greener Christmas to share with your family!

Shop at thrift stores- one mom’s  trash is another mom’s  treasure! We at RMD love to scour thrift stores and consignment stores for hidden treasures. You never know what you may find! A “new” record for your teenage daughter’s vinyl collection, a pair of vintage boots?  I just found my mom a Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater that would sell for almost $200 for $30 and it looks brand new! Have fun with it and feel good about recycling in a new way.
