HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Thrifting isn’t just a way to save money – it’s now a full-blown hobby for some shoppers.

National Thrift Shop Day is recognized on August 17. If you’re wondering how to celebrate, National Today has a few tips.

  1. Donate something special. Thrift stores always need new items! From hand-me-downs to things that you just no longer need, thrift shops can find a way to sell them.
  2. Go treasure hunting. What’s the saying? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Just because you don’t need an item doesn’t mean it should be thrown away. Take it to a thrift store and let someone else find a place for it!
  3. Volunteer at a thrift shop. Volunteering at a thrift store doesn’t just mean working a register or putting new items out on the floor. Taking some time out of your day could involve fundraising, production, or working with donated items.
