One of my favorite people to follow on Instagram is a bit of celebrity in the thrifting world.

Her name is Meghan McAndrews and her account is called HighplainsThrifter. Her Instagram posts are fun, sweet and inspiring.

In fact, I’d say she’s raised thrifting to an art form and a lifestyle.

So it was great fun for me to find a story she’d written recently in The Salvation Army’s Minnesota and North Dakota publication called Scope. There she was in black and white, sharing her best shopping secrets with the likes of us!

Right from the start, her first tip was one I need to take to heart. It’s probably the thing I’m worst at and the reason my shopping trips often go awry.

Here it is: Make a List!

McAndrews says making a list helps us avoid aimless wandering and keeps us focused. She keeps a list of the items she hankering for on her smart phone.

To read secrets 2 through 10, click here for a link to Scope, a publication of The Salvation Army Northern Division.
