Savers provided me with a gift certificate to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
I'm gonna pop some tags ... Only got twenty dollars in my pocket... I, I, I'm hunting...
Is the song stuck in your head, yet?
In my twenties I shopped thrift stores for vintage clothes and vintage shops for clothes. I was not hip or trendy, just broke. My girlfriend was a master at putting an outfit together that was fantastic and chic, but it was still okay to wear flannel at the time and I waited tables so it really didn't matter wore because I was in a uniform most of the day.
I am not sure when I stopped going or why - I just got out of the habit and the places I like to frequent closed.
Walking into the bright and shining Savers in Fairview Park was a delight. I have a new thrift store to go to now. I was invited to the sneak peak and given $50 to spend. I felt like I hit the lottery! Best part - they are letting me giveaway $50 to one lucky reader for any Savers or Value Village nation and Canadian wide!
Savers has been in the business of recycling and supporting communities since 1954 with 330 privately operated chain stores n the U.S., Canada and Australia which employ over 20,000 people.

Savers of Fairview Park has partnered with Easter Seals. For nearly 100 years, Easter Seals Northern Ohio has been providing services that help children and adults with disabilities gain greater independence.
Recycling, great deals, and gives back to worthy charities helping our community? I say Northeast Ohio has a fantastic new place to shop.
I felt we got some amazing deals! My son found a Shark stick vacuum. It may not be cordless but it was $6.99 and works brilliantly. He also got himself a new set of sheets of his favorite movie character plus t-shirts and shorts. Baby girl pick up some fun new tights and a party dress. Her words not mine.
Our toaster bit the dust and I found one for less than seven dollars. I was so happy when I burnt my bagel because its been so long since we had one that worked properly.
I also scored on games for game night! Looking at this photo now, I'm kickcing myself for not picking up Cleveland Monopoly!
Believe me when I say that $50 went fast but I got so many wonderful things at a fraction of the cost.
