Compacting in a small town

I haven't updated about Compacting lately because there hasn't been much to tell. How many times can you say "I bought nothing new this month."?

I am afraid that it may change soon, though.

Compacting in a small town sucks. At least compacting in this small town sucks.

I have been (what I am told are) the two biggest thrift stores in town and it was pathetic. I thought the fact that I don't need "stuff" would make it ok... clothes can't be that hard to find, right? The mens jeans section of the bigger store had exactly two pair of jeans. I couldn't even find the mens section of the smaller store.

So my options are -
1. Keep trying.
2. Drive to Jackson or Tuscaloosa (each 1 1/2 hours, in different directions) once a month as needed.
3. Try other small town thrift stores - if there are any. As the county seat, we are the biggest town around.
4. Become nudists.

I don't even know how I am going to pull off Christmas or the two birthdays we have coming up.
