Thrift Store Thursday: Winter Essentials

Welcome back to the second Thrift Store Thursday post! If you missed the first of the series check it out here [Thrift Store Thursday: Denim + Gray]. 

Because it is the dead of winter and because I live in the heart of the Midwest, my thrifting has extended to include some winter essentials including a coat, scarf, jeans, and snow boots. My trick? Wait until near the end of winter and buy ahead for the next season! Works like a charm.
Olive Green Coat- $17 @ Nearly New Town (Rock Rapids, IA)
Charcoal Chunky Infinity Scarf- $5 @ Plato's Closet (Apple Valley, MN)
Mossimo Premium Cut Boot Leg Jeans- $10 @ Clothes Mentor (Apple Valley, MN)
Snow Boots- $2.50 @ Goodwill (Lakeville, MN)

Where do you find your winter essentials? How do you keep warm without breaking the bank? What winter clothes are must haves for you?
