He Would Give You The SHIRT Off His Back

No matter what the circumstance, some people are generous to a T. They would sacrifice anything necessary to help someone. When you walk into a thrift store usually the first thing you see are rows and rows of clothes. Particularly shirts and tops. For me, this gives new meaning to the old expression, “He would give you the shirt off his back.” Every item in a Goodwill, St. Vincent De Paul, Agape or Salvation Army has been donated. That means someone, somewhere gave these organizations the shirt off their back. Something to think about, isn’t it?  Helping others starts at home. Let’s all do our part to recycle and  help these charities make money. Clean your closet. Donate your clothes and buy Previously Worn ones. Shop THRIFT. It saves the environment.  It’s cheaper than a department store. And better than a yard sale. You’ll be thrilled with what you find. Conversation starters abound.


  1. These days since we just don't have that much when we are giving away things, we go with Goodwill or similar rather than having a garage sale. I do like shopping in the thrift stores; haven't yet since we moved, but have to soon :)


  2. It's just about time for my April bag to he Salvation Army. My clothes closets are well cleaned out, but I know there are kitchen things to donate and shoes. Books go to the branch library for their monthly sales. I'm a regular. I try not to buy much when I'm donating, as I'm really trying to declutter the apartment.

  3. I always look forward to visiting thrift shops. You really never know what you'll find!

  4. Taryterre,
    I donate to Good Will all the time, as it's just down the street from me. I like how they have all their shirts color organized for people to buy in this picture. :)

    Have a wonderful week.


  5. I have donated to the Christian store here and need to go through my closets and storage containers and donate. I don't know if they have a thrift at Andalusia or not we don'
    t have one here. You look so nice in your outfits. I have give up on shopping for more clothes until I can get what I don't need out of the way.(smile)I always say I might can wear that again. Take care.

  6. I always donate to GoodWill. I also shop there regularly.
