Six Reasons to Shop at Deseret Industries this Weekend!

I’m a penny pincher when it comes to shopping, but that doesn’t mean I skimp on quality. How do I do it? Places like Deseret Industries are my secret weapon and I am beyond excited to have a new one opening up just 10 minutes away from me in Springville, Utah!

Here’s six reasons that I LOVE thrift store shopping at Deseret Industries and why you should, too!

KIDS GROW FAST! I swear that it wasn’t long ago that Lily was this size.

I blinked my eyes and now Lily is almost 10!

PS – Both of those outfits are second-hand. I’m a long time thrifter!

All three of my children inherited their Daddy’s height so they never stay in one size for long. It’s not uncommon for me to buy shoes online and have them arrive already too small. Thus, I am a deal shopper! Clearance racks, outlet sales, yard sales, and my favorite this year – Deseret Industries! I can score new or almost new clothes for $1-$5. Makes me not feel as bad when they outgrew them so quickly!

I CAN DONATE AND GIVE BACK! We fill up bags to donate to Deseret Industries at least once a month. From toys to furniture to clothes, it’s nice to be able to give things we are done with a second life with someone else. I love that what I donate helps with humanitarian worldwide and local needs


HELPS THE COMMUNITY. When I toured the Springville DI earlier this month, I was touched by the stories of those who had been helped by Deseret Industries.  Now only do individuals gain retail experience, but they also receive career and technical education. Through Deseret Industries, many are able to get back on their feet and provide for their families.  The Springville DI will provide 100+ jobs to those in the community. That’s a win-win! Every employee I came into contact with during the grand opening was so kind and helpful.


THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE. It’s like a treasure hunt at Deseret Industries – you never know what you are going to get! I went to the grand opening with maternity clothes on my mind, but came away with bags and bags of $1 baby girl clothing. Many still new with tags!
