US calls charity shops thrift stores, I assume. I shop charity shops to help the charity and get a bargain. I don't shop or donate to Goodwill as they are a for profit company with very little going to charitable causes.

It's better for the earth to reuse and recycle clothing that still has life in it.

Because sometimes I can find nice things and have the inclination and money to browse, other times I need something cheap quickly like as part of a uniform for work. Rarely go though
