Hi Thrift Places to Go

What services do you use on post to save money?

I use the E-4 and under on post for free clothing and house hold stuff. I got a really cute Deigo bed set for my kids and some much needed pants. The one at Ft Bliss does not care what rank you are =)

I also sell my used stuff that the kids no longer fit into at the thrift store on post. I find it is cheaper for me to go to other thrift stores to buy things I need though.

I love taking my kids to the story time on the libary. They love it and learn a lot from it and it's free!!!

We also have 2 free little kids water parks during the summer and a free adult pool all year round.

I have no real idea what ACS(Army Community Service) provides for familes. But they have a big building!

Really looking forword to your answers!

Gosh, I wish I was at a larger base again!! The Airman's Attic was super helpful when my hubby did a year in Turkey. The base here has zero....I will just have to live through everyone else for now!!

I have heard wonderful things about the Just Between Friends sales
Just Between Friends | Home
check and see if you have them in your area, from what I understand it is an easier way to make money on your gently used childrens clothes

Coastieswife, check your AFRC (or whatever the readiness center is called on the army bases!!) They can hook you up with all the programs!

Last summer I got some great toys for the kids at our thrift store on base, now because of the CPSC laws that apply to lead (and not to resale as I have pointed out to them over and over again and they just ignore ) they don't take any kids things except clothes. *sigh*

I am Army so it is a little different for us. When I have problems that the "boss" wont listen to, I go talk about them in town hall meetings. It works very good for me most of the time. The post commander is there along with AAFES peeps and other big head people. They listen to the people that show up and answer there questions. They even do e-mails for this too! If you show up and ask make sure have proof in hand whether you record it or have someone sign something saying what they told you. Quality of life issues are taken seriously. I video recorded my coupon trip, showed 3 people the video after the meetings and most things did change. If you have the time try it!

Pretty sure you guys have something... You are Airforce right?
