BUDGET THRIFT HAUL / TURNING $200 INTO $1200 / MENS AND WOMENS THRIFT FINDS Hello friends and welcome back again to a haul with a fantastic twist! So having done some online hauls I thought I might see what it’s like to venture into a store again but I didn’t want to spend too much…In comes the thrift shop! Armed with only $200 I was challenged to find three outfits for myself AND for Alex and I wasn’t all that convinced that I could!Turns out that finding three outfits can be done and not only that but compared to buying direct retail, the savings are phenomenal!! Through some miracle and picking just the right items I somehow managed to turn my $200 into about $1200 worth of clothing… If of course we look past the fact that they took the long way into my hands by diverting through someone else’s wardrobe first!Hope you enjoy this one and find your own inspiration to go digging through those clothing racks because you never know what you’re gonna find…

That dress was absolutely gorgeous and you did a wonderful job picking out clothes Sam but a little tip for Alex in that dress she needs to get a white chemise slip to go under it so it's not see through

Sam, you can take that shirt in to make it fit you. Coolirpa has some tutorials that should help!

I love that people are getting more into thrifting, it's a great way to support the communities. My mom helps run a small thrift shop at her church, and they do alright for a place that's 100% donation and 100% volunteer based. They even have a little fashion show every spring. It's a lot of fun and they try to keep the prices low to help people in the area who don't have a lot to spend on new things. Like they also run a Career Club for people out of work looking for jobs, and the thrift shop will often give an outfit or jacket to members who are going for an interview. There are also a few colleges in the area, so having a place to get inexpensive things for the dorm is helpful as well.

As you discussed on thrifting and not always finding the right size and style,, When you basically thrift your entire wardrobe like me, you tend to have an idea of what sizes you wear and go for it. Sometimes you’ll find a top that’s way too big to wear casually or pay full price for but when thrifted you can find a way to fix it up to where it. When thrifting don’t always stick to the specific size or style that fits you. Another great thing about thrifting is finding crazy statement pieces that you know no one else can find ! If you ever do another thrifting haul video I’d love to see you maybe go a little bit out of your style comfort zone and give other pieces a try ❤️

Awe Sam, you should have found a savers! I'm Australian, and in Footscray and Greensborough there is a savers and its massive ! It always has clothes that are great and you'd find anything you wanted in your size too!

Only saw one comment mentioning (I didn't look long) but Salvation Army supports homophobia and kicks trans women out of their women's shelters. They're not a great organization at all. I don't know anything about the other one you mentioned though 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Vinnies are better than salvos, like better prices, items & (not 100% if that's true, but it's what I've been told by a few people) more charitable, try OP (or opportunity) shops there's always at least a few in the major cities, most suburbs will have one of some sort (other than salvos/vinnies) and the prices & items are better (or at least that's true from my experience in Vic) also awesome places for 2nd hand still (not really fashion, but more furniture, home ware & some electronics) are the green sheds/tip shops, SUPER low prices (my partner got an awesome like-new electric recliner in working order with nothing missing or broken for $2!!!) edit: unless you'd go to any of the shops I mentioned in more high-end areas, you are very unlikely to find any expensive clothing, nice clothes - as much as in vinnies/salvos, expensive brands- nup

I'm from Sydney too and you guys need to visit Newtown for thrift stores. They're more vintage/quirky/hipster/cool than the typical old person thrift stores. I get most of my dresses from thrift stores and you wouldn't believe the things you can find that people give away. Also Sam, with the shoes, they do have pairs, but they usually keep one shoe behind the counter so people don't steal them 😂

OH yeah! And when i go thrifting on a thrift shopping spree... My budget is anywhere between 25-100$...depending on a day. Last time i went...just this tuesday... I hadnt gone in a couple months, so cause the weather will be getting warmer soon i decided to go all out! I spent 225$...at ValueVillage... And this is what i got for that, FOR ME: .5 light jackets .2 pairs of shoes .1 pair of jeans .3 pairs of pants .4 pairs lounge type pants .1 pair of shorts .1 dress .3 light sweaters .1 cardigan .4 long sleeve tops .4 tank tops .3 tees .2 leggings .1 pair of tights .2 skirts .1 one piece shorts and tanktop thing .1 pajama set FOR MY SON: .2 pairs of elastic waist lounge/workout pants .2 tees .1 light jacket OTHER STUFF NOT CLOTHES: .a tiny white shelf thing .a lovely 8.5x11 pic frame .1 photo album(for my mum) .a cat water bowl .a cute pink kawaii basket .a small handmade japanese container .My stuff was 280$ Worth about 1,300$ .My sons stuff was 43$ Worth about 105$ .Other stuff was 23$ Worth about 100$ ALL TOGETHER i spent 224.90$ ALL TOGETHER is worth about 1,533$ THATS A HELL OF A GOOD DEAL IF U ASK ME!!! Thats roughly 85% off everything! And its all like new, or some was new! I had a 35% off coupon... And saved 125$... It would have been 346$ if i didnt have the coupon...but still a good deal. Thrift stores are great for ANY style u have, i had many style in my past like, emo, scene, goth, punk, sporty, girlie, vintage, kawaii, pastel... CURRENTLY....and my final style ive had for a while is Kawaii/Pastel/Vintage/Korean. I just mixed all my faves, and it came out great lol. Its good for odd body shapes... I am 5'8, and 115lbs...ive ALWAYS been tall and skinny...and new clothes i would spend 50$ on would shrink too small and be wasted...so i learned to LOVE thrifting cause most the time their prewashed...or if it did shrink...it was like 8$ only! You can get 5x the amount of clothes! Lets say u spend 180$ on a brand new outfit with top, pants, shoes, socks, jacket. You could get easily 8 or more full oufits for that much money. The brands they have are also amazing...they have SUPER expensive, semi expensive, regular priced brands, and cheap brands...they have everything...i also frequently find Korean, Chinese, Japanese brand and also vintage clothing from 1920s, 1940s, 1890s, 1970s, 1990s. LOTS of great brands are there! I got a brand new with the original tags on it, snowboarding coat at ValueVillage 3 years ago. I looked it up, and on the website the same jacket is selling for 680$!!! And i paid only 23.99$ for it. Yes thats expensive for the thrift store...but well worth it! I still use that coat every winter! I also have a blouse i found at Goodwill, its a authentic 1880s-1890s top, in almost perfect condition... Online similar things are selling for 140-250$. I got mine for 9$!!! I was blown away! I have so many stories of great finds from thrifting. People really need to realize its not grose... As long as u find items that arent stained, and u wash it b4 u wear it all day, its like new! (Yes i do have a few grose experiences too...but the good outweighs the bad by far!) Thanks for this video sam! Thanks for showing others that thrifting is awesome! Keep up the good work hun!!!

The reason why she is cooing at her reflection is because she thinks that it's another bird. They coo like that when trying to gain favor from another bird or a person they consider part of their flock. Birds like Archie can get very jealous too, when we had a macaw he was jealous of the cats and dogs. Anything or anyone taking the attention and/or affection away from them from the leader of the flock.

I love shopping at thrift stores! Salvos are my favourite. I once found an absolutely gorgeous Oxford coat (retail about $500!!) for $12 😂Plus so many more bargains. And it's great to know that you're helping recycle clothing as well as giving some money to charity. What's not to love?!

Goodwill is overpriced to be honest. I prefer the Salvation Army.
Cee Kay (1 month ago)
You did pretty well, especially since the fancier second hand shops are pretty expensive. I have gotten brand new clothing on clearance for similar discounts. I remember once I bought a top I didn't need because it was something ridiculous like 10c in a Target clear-out. Sadly, I'm too plus sized to find anything decent in second hand shops. I once found an Incredible Hulk costume that mostly fit me for like $3, it was awesome so I bought it anyway and dealt with feeling mildly uncomfortable when wearing it.

You did rediculously well Sam 🤣 I wore a thrifted top and pants today: $7 total 😎 The thrifting Mecca of Australia is Maroochydore on the sunshine coast of Queensland just FYI... There's legit 7 charity shops in a 1km radius and they've got the good 💩 ❤️

On the subject of single shoes, opp shops and thrift stores tend to hide the second shoe in a pair out the back of the shop so nobody can steal them. Next time try asking the volunteers/employees and they'll usually be happy to bring the other one out for you to try them on properly :)

I wish you could come to our Goodwill. The place is HUGE! And you'd never spend more than fifteen dollars on an outfit (as in shirt, skirt, jewerly, and a purse). I suppose that would defeat the challenge, however. Love you, Sam!

Maybe they have a customer that frequently shops their store that is an amputee and only needs one shoe? I know theres a program that is world wide called sole mates that matches amputees of the same shoe size with someone who needs just the other shoe. So everytime they buy a pair of shoes they send the other to their sole mate <3 practical and sweet

America's also got St. Vinny's and Salvation Army. Both are a crucial part of the American thrifting experience, alongside Goodwill. Nothing beats a locally owned thrift store though.

I am so glad that you decided to do an op-shop haul. I would love to see Alex do an op-shop crawl for kawaii outfits and accessories. Getting bloody sick of her disposable fashion hauls. Check around for other op-shops. Especially the smaller independent ones and vintage clothing stores. Don't give up on op-shops. It just takes time to find things you like. I set myself a budget, shopping list and shop list to go on an op-shop crawl. Usually visiting 3-5 shops in one day. Often finding brand new items with tags. So find other op-shops and just check them out even if you need to drive more than 15 minutes to get to a good one. Also look up reviews on yelp or similar to find the better op-shops. You could even do videos about the best rated and worst rated and compare them yourself.

I am actually in love with shopping at thrift shops. Especially where I live. There's a thrift shop here that has seasonal sales near the end of each season. They punch a diamond shape into the tags on the Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter clothes and then anything with that punch starts off at half price. After a few days or so the sale will go down to 50¢ for diamond punched tags and then it'll even drop down to 25¢ after that until everything is gone.

Halo Top tastes like wet sand and broken dreams. Cute shirt though. You found some good pieces. Good menswear finds are the unicorns of the op-shop, especially shoes.

+starbtle dairy-free. Maybe it was the flavour I tried... Caramel macchiato or something. There just wasn't any real flavour and the texture was gross. I'm not going to bother spending money to find out if other flavours are OK. I like Over the Moo or Pana, or B&J if I'm really indulging.
