Ok who honestly believes Jinger is constantly going to the thrift store for a sale?

 

I think one of the following is happening:

 

1: Jinger really is going to the thrift store and is clairvoyant in the way of thrift store sales

2: There is a cute boy that works at the thrift store and she wants to go see him and flirt with him. (More likely option methinks?)

3: She is secretly getting out of the house and doing her own thing. If she has to take a younger sibling, she is bribing them with candy or money to keep quiet. Since she and Jessa are so close, she may take Jessa. I bet she has ways to keep her quiet.... (Wishful thinking but would be cool if it was true)

I choose option 3, she definitely just wants to get out of the house and do something for herself and such.

Seriously, they PRAY about finding another pair of "heelies"????

Come on, Duggars, I think the man upstairs has a lot more pressing concerns than finding you some cheap shoe/skates.

Sometimes they'll want to buy special treats, whether it's candy or a favorite kind of pickle (because we love pickles around here!), and sometimes they'll splurge and they'll spend some of their money to buy this special-crunch-garlic-whatever-whatever-whatever kind of pickle.

Poor buggers can't even get their favourite pickle in a grocery shop? They have to pay for it themselves? :?

it says that they save up for things, how do they do this, especially the younger ones? i thought they didn't get paid for their jurisdictions? :?

yeah shoe/skates seems a bit pointless to me :?

I have thrift store ESP. I knew when I went to the GW yest. I would find new unused hanes sweats in a small petite with pockets, I knew I would find a brand new scale and rice cooker. Sometimes it just happens for me, I wake up knowing. Its a gift I tell ya.

I swear I woke up in the middle of the night (about 5 years ago) knowing the GW would have a pair of red Doc Marten 9 ties. I couldn't get back to sleep. Got there when they open at 8:30 and walla!! Mis marked at $9.99. I am so good at this shit. I have sold my soul for this gift. And Jinger will be my heir. :twisted:

I'm so over the "OMG. My kids all love pickles! Isn't that the cutest little quirk ever!? They even spend pocket money on pickles!" Yeah, whatever.

It's possible that she just wants to get out of the house but is still going to thrift stores. Sometimes I would want to get away too and would really go to the mall, even though I really didn't want to/had been there a lot already.

I believe the Lord does care about the little things. At the same time I also think it would be better if the kids had an allowance they could save up for heelies with.

I think they do get paid some low amount, like $0.03 per jurisdiction. I remember Boob and Michelle talking about it in one episode, and they said that each kid keeps careful tabs on how much they have to spend.

OMG I know how to free the Duggar kids.

Bait them with a hundred dollar bill on a fishing line, and then tell them they can only have it if they come with us and change their identity and become normal kids.

(Please note I am joking here... cause that would be kidnapping. Would it work on an older Duggarling?)

My guess is she just wants to get out of the house. In the middle of the day thrift stores tend to be really quiet with just staff and a couple customers. Compared to a house full of howlers it would be an escape.

We have it too!! I got a witches ball last week when I said I was going to get one. My sons are like the video game and manga psychics with Goodwill. :clap:

I am unusually good at thrift store shopping and an intuitive garage saler--I always end up at the cool one where the people can be talked down to almost nothing. Beat that Jinger!

One time I went into a thrift store to get a bicycle. The original price was 40 dollars. I told them I had a twenty dollar bill. SOLD!

Fastforward six months later. Looking for another one because the first one was stolen. I walked in, and paid eight bucks for a really nice one that required just a little work that an amazing friend of mine was able to fix up for me.

My husband has awesome Goodwill kung fu. Just this past Saturday he said he wanted to go because he wanted to get some PS3 accessories. He's browsing the electronics and spies a box with a steering wheel on it. It's brand new, in the box, perfect condition, and goes with the PS3. AND it's marked with the 50% off tag. So it was $4!!!!

I'm so jealous, what are y'all's secrets?!

I have the same gift, but it only extends to books and vintage Singer sewing machines. I canceled an appointment at the last minute one afternoon and went to Goodwill because I suddenly knew they had a Featherweight for me. I got a mental image of it on a shelf in the back of the store with the rest of the sewing machines, rather than with the overpriced "collectible" stuff. AND THERE IT WAS, for $19.95.

I can't tell you how many times I've thought about a book I've wanted to read, suddenly known beyond all doubt that it was at Goodwill, and found it waiting for me on the shelf when I went to look. And I read a lot of odd, obscure stuff, so it's not as if there's a good chance those books will show up before long anyway. It's almost spooky, sometimes.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
