Since they were newly married, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have done much of their shopping at thrift stores. Everyone has a different idea about what spending is necessary, and everyone has their own ways of being resourceful and environmentally-friendly. The Duggars' views may not be the norm, but they have decided to make their motto "Buy Used and Save the Difference." Most of their clothes, shoes, toys and furniture is second-hand, but they don't mind. Michelle teaches her children resourcefulness, which means exercising wisdom to find good uses of items that others would often throw away. She also teaches them to be thrifty and not to spend money which they think is unnecessary.
What are your views? We are very curious to know what you think about thrift stores and second-hand shopping? Do you agree or disagree with it? Are there specific items that you would never purchase used?
