National Thrift Shop Day 2019
Today is August 17 and the day before my birthday. I would normally shop at thrift stores before my birthday to get the best deals for my birthday outfit but I am still in Chicago and can't take advantage of the sales this year. Luckily for you, I will share some of my favorite thrift stores in the San Antonio area and some deals or tips on how to shop today.

4) Goodwill Outlet AKA The Bins – 4810 Eisenhauer Rd #240, San Antonio, TX 78218
a. Time saver: Go to the departments that you typical sell (ex. clothes or shoes) and then look at the rest of the items.
b. Money saving tip: Everything is by the pound. Make sure you look at all your items one more time before checking out. It can get hectic and you do not want adrenaline to cloud your purchasing decisions.
5) Uptown Cheapskate – 11255 Huebner Rd, Suite 205, San Antonio, TX 78230

9) Revolution Thirft - 8513 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216
I love their mission of donating 100% of their profits to high impact, life changing charities in the San Antonio Area.
You really have to dig for good sales but they are there. Take your time and look at the corners since there are always things hidden behind other items.
10) Youth Alternatives Thrift Shop - 3103 West Ave, San Antonio, TX 78213
This is a smaller non-profit thrift store but I find a lot of unique items whenever I go. Make sure to look through everything and compare prices.
