I'm gonna pop some tags.......

I've gathered all my thrift shop info here for myself and anyone else local that is willing to hunt to save some money. Normally I don't like thrift shops but with losing weight I didn't want to invest a lot of money but my jeans were saggy and baggy so I had to do something.

I started on Saturday by going to:
Downtown Rescue Mission in Madison (the old Asbury Thrift Shop location):
     Well organized by type and size of clothing; had a dressing room. I happened to be there on 50% day. Got a pair of jeans and a pair of Ann Taylor slacks for a total of $7.
Salvation Army (Hughes Rd in Madison)
     Small selection, not organized by size, no dressing room but you can use the large restroom. Not worth a special trip but since it's 'near' the above shop as well as Asubry, worth stopping. Got a pair of jeans for $4
Thrift Mart
      NO Dressing Room and it's a For Profit store so I didn't buy a thing and likely won't return there.

On Sunday, I went to:
 Value Village (N Pkway in Hsv) - can't remember now if they were organized by size or not but they did have a dressing room. I got a pair of jeans for $5.

On Monday, I had one more shopping excursion:
Asbury  (in Madison)
     Organized by type and size of clothing. I got a pair of jeans and a blouse for $6 total
Downtown Rescue Mission in HSV (on the Parkway at corner of Oakwod)
    Larger than the Hsv store, well organized by type and size of clothing, had a dressing room. The items I bought were discounted 25%. I got 2 pairs of casual black pants for $9 total
Salvation Army (on Oakwood near the Parkway)
  Much larger than the one in Madison. Not organized by size. Had a dressing room. $4 for a pair of jeans. It was 50% day for Seniors.
Sacks on 72   No organization by type of clothing nor size. Didn't look for a dressing room but doubt I'll go back as I prefer some sense of order.
