Bargains await the clever New Jersey shopper willing to do a little legwork to find the best deals.
If you’re ready to navigate the world of more-for-less shopping, explore consignment shops and thrift stores.
Consignment stores typically carry designer merchandise in perfect or lightly used condition. Items are often sold for one-third to one-half of retail—and don’t forget to ask about becoming a consignor.
Thrift stores, which might contribute proceeds to charities, carry an array of donated merchandise and are not as choosy about labels.
Fabulous finds at surprising prices can also be found at warehouse sales, trunk shows and estate sales. Just do a little research, jump in your car and go!
