January is definitely the month to hit up your local thrift stores. A lot of people I know rush to make that end of the year donation so they can get a tax deduction, and some people I know start doing their spring cleaning early, too, so that means the stores will be loaded with lots of thrifty, nifty finds. Can't wait until I go on my next thrift shopping excursion.
