Thrift stores can be a great way to spend the afternoon while saving money.

There's something fulfilling about finding a deal-- that moment when you purchase a used car that has been well-cared for and you knock thousands off of the dealer's price, or when you negotiate down the price of a house you're dying to move into. Though the big deals are certainly worth celebrating, small victories can be fun to find and can save a great deal of money in the long run.

Thrift stores are notoriously wonderful for finding good deals, be it on designer clothes which have been barely used or accessories for your living room that would have cost much more had they been brand new. Whatever you're looking for, thrift stores can be a great way to spend the afternoon while saving money. 

If you're a thrifty shopper looking for places to scour, here are 15 mighty independent thrift stores in Springfield to get you started.
