Old Man: Thrift Store Shopping, Pt. 3

I'm pretty deep in exams right now, so this won't be a great post, but I just wanted to share a great definition of thrifting that I came across a while ago, but hadn't appreciated until now.

From The Curriculum blog post "Cuff Links" by Sartre

"The Puritan value-consciousness also explains the curious practice of “thrifting,” that is to say wearing someone else’s tax deductions."

Classic.
