What is Frugality NFP? Frugality is a not-for-profit corporation registered in the State of Illinois. It is a thrift store where thousands of items are $1.99 each. All profits are donated to a different Livingston County Charity each month.
Can I donate my stuff to Frugality? We appreciate that you want to donate, however, Frugality NFP does not take donations directly from the public. Frugality’s stock comes from the generous consignors at Once ‘n Again.
Why don’t you accept donations directly in Frugality?
- Frugality was founded in 2007 as a service for Once ‘n Again consignor’s…a place to sell some of the things that Once ‘n Again does not accept and the things that didn’t sell in the 90 day consignment period. It remains a service for only Once ‘n Again consignors with the added benefit of helping local charities by donating any profits.
- It is costly to sort and dispose of donations. If we accepted anything from anyone Frugality would be buried in stuff yet would not be able to afford to remain open.
If I am already a consignor at Once ‘n Again can I bring my items directly to Frugality? No, your items must go thru the consignment process at Once ‘n Again. Only active (you must be selling things at Once ‘n Again too) consignors with a positive balance can send items to Frugality through Once ‘n Again.
What kinds of things do you not accept for Frugality from Consignor’s at Once ‘n Again? Furniture, small and large appliances, toys with a lot of pieces, mismatched mugs, old glass wear, anything with a lot of pieces (if a piece is missing it does not work), anything that is broken, old, stained, dirty, holey, & faded etc.
