It also gives me a low risk opportunity to take style risks and try new looks out.  On the other hand, because there are so many cheap clothing items, it can be easy to find myself spending too much and buying an abundance of items I don't need, which then defeats the purpose of thrifting to save money.  The result is that over the years I've…
