A thrifting trend

The word ¨thrift” comes from the word ẗhrive”.  Being thrifty means to use money and other resources responsibly and not wastefully. The Salvation army is a christian thrift store that was the first thrift store that became national, and ever since dozens of thrift stores are national such as, savers, goodwill, saint vincent de paul, etc. And ever since thrift stores have been immensely popular within america as a cheaper alternative to buying new clothes. But recently within the youth of america shopping at thrift stores, or “thrifting,” has become immensely popular and created several internet trends. For example: videos of Teenagers who post videos on youtube regularly or “Youtubers” as todayś youth call them, literally just video tape themselves driving to the thrift store, show themselves finding the clothes, and then go home and show the viewers what they bought, and a lot of the videos receive over 1 million views. Teenagers have very complicated dressing styles, some teenagers wear all nike and adidas, some wear thrasher hoodies and skinny jeans, and some kids have their very own style. Some of the most common people who donate to thrift stores are elderly people. And kids have some aesthetics of clothing that are also what are commonly worn by elderly people. Making thrift stores more  popular. So if you have clothes you never wear anymore, donate them. Your trash maybe someone else's treasure.
