Shopping for Second Hand Clothes

Online shopping with my own money is one of the things I have enjoyed the most but aside from it I also enjoyed shopping for second hand clothes, it all started when my mother brought me to a second hand shop when I am in need of shorts to wear at home. I have gained a lot of weight after living in abroad for many years and I can’t find the shorts I like for my size so we end up in the said shop.

Shopping for second hand clothes was big no for me before not just because they  have been wore by other people but because I find it embarrassing buying  clothes worn by other people.


Well, that was the old time.  Today, shopping for second hand clothes excites me a lot, finding and buying clothes that are good as new excites me and make me proud of buying them. I felt like I won a contest for able to buy them before other people could see them.

The other day, I immediately saw SALE sign in the second hand clothes shop we frequently visit. Blouses are on sale for as low as Php10.00 ($0.22); it was really a good deal so before we do our purpose in town we dropped by at the shop and sweat ourselves looking for the clothes that will fit us. I am really in need of new clothes since the clothes I have previously bought are already too big for me, yeah right I lose a lot of weight in these past few months not just because of diet but because of personal problem as well.

Clothes Surplus Shop

We ended up buying a lot of blouses and shirts since they are pretty cheap, most of the clothes I bought are in dark color like black and dark blue, perfect for my not so happy feeling!

Oh well, losing weight is expensive not because of buying diet supplements just to lose some weight but because of buying new clothes to wear when you lose weight. Some of the clothes those are already too big for me to wear end up to my mother, grandmother and neighbour.

  1. […] Shopping for second hand clothes when they are on huge sale is one of the things I enjoy the most, it is somehow therapeutic for me. We normally do it in well-knows surplus shop but a few months ago we decided to go to a smaller surplus shop because they were on sale that day. While looking around the surplus clothes a kitten passed by, the sale lady picked it up and when she put it down I picked it up and give it a touch. The sales lady then asked me if I want to bring the kitten home,  I check it first if the kitten is a male or female since we already have a lot of kittens at home we have adopted from the street.
