Thrifting Goals for 2022
But this year, I really wanted to set some thrifting goals for myself in 2022 for “Thrifting with the Gals“.
So I started a fire in the fireplace, poured a cup of coffee, and got started thinking about my thrifting goals for 2022.
Have you ever set thrifting goals for yourself before? If not, today may just be the day.
I settled on 4 thrifting goals that I know I will be able to stick to in 2022.
So let’s get to it:
1. To Buy Less & Thrift More
My first thrifting goal for 2022 is to buy less and thrift more. Meaning, I don’t want to buy things that I really don’t need.
And to be more goal-oriented when I’m out “Thrifting with the Gals“.
This is also partly the reason I created today’s blog post, to help myself stay focused on:
- Items that I am actually searching for.
- And ones with a decor purpose already in mind.
2. Vision Boards
Create vision boards for thrift shopping with a decor purpose in mind.
Thrifting isn’t always planned, as we all know.
A drive-by yard sale, a new second-hand shop, flea market, etc. can all pop up so unexpectedly, and like yourself, I can never pass one by…
Therefore having a vision board that reflects my thrifting goals and decor needs will be so helpful especially on those surprise pop-ups.
You may learn all about vision boards here.
Here is one of the first vision boards I ever created. And I’m still swooning over all this vintage inspiration today.
3. Sell, Donate, and Organize
Years ago, while living in Connecticut I had a booth at a vintage barn that I really enjoyed collecting and selling for.
I enjoy thrifting and vintage shopping so much and I’m thinking of goal #3 as an extension to “Thrifting with the Gals” for this year.
I want to start up a consignment booth like this one here, preferably near our home in Vermont.

4. Thrift My Homes
Maine Home | Thrifting Goals
This year I want to take the time to go through our attic in Maine. You see, It’s filled with antiques, my mother’s collectibles, old family photos, quilts, and so much more.
Check out the post on Coastal Maine Heritage | Embracing My Roots.
I’d like to go through it all this year, creating and styling unique treasures for the home with all the heirlooms this attic keeps.
And I know you will love this new one-of-a-kind vintage rug from Revival HERE!
Vermont Home | Thrifting Goals
And this year at our Vermont home, I am determined to clean out our basement, selling many of the thrifted goodies that it too holds.
Just not any family heirlooms here…
