<p>A thrifty mum&nbsp;filled her entire wardrobe&nbsp;with secondhand clothes - with all items costing less than £6.</p><p>Nadine Stephens, 47, began looking in thrift shops for old fashion and furniture 20 years ago.</p><p>At the time Nadine, from Brisbane, Australia, was in a low income family with four children to provide for - so it was a necessity.</p><p>But she fell in love with finding incredible secondhand goods - so decided that she wanted to adopt the lifestyle for good.</p><p>The schoolteacher committed to turn her home into a vintage paradise filled with hand-me-down goods and upcycled furniture.</p><p>Not just that, but she opted to make her whole wardrobe secondhand too - and it saves her A$5,000 (£2,820) a year.</p><p>Nadine sees it as her way of saving some money and doing her bit for the planet - and says it's easier than you think.</p><p>She said: "I have a love of all things quirky and you don't get that in mainstream stores.</p><p>"If I can avoid buying new, I will - I don't see the point of it when there are so many second-hand things out there.</p><p>"I think there is still a mindset that secondhand means bad quality - people can't believe some of the things I get!</p><p>"I even get friends asking if I can teach them how to thrift shop.</p><p>"But it's just about having patience and waiting to find the thing you need - it comes when you least expect it.</p><p>"Other than that, I don’t really find it any different to shopping normally.</p><p>"Except you come out with a better mindset because you are saving the planet - and thousands of dollars!"</p><p>Nadine began shopping secondhand as she raised her four children and found money was tight.</p><p>But the more she did it, the more she became hooked on finding all sorts of amazing items with slashed prices.</p><p>The mum-of-four filled her wardrobe to the brim with unique and quirky outfits which perfectly suited her style.</p><p>And because she bought them all from thrift shops and car boot sales, nothing in her wardrobe cost more than A$10 (£5.60).</p><p>She explained that she puts together a list of items she wants to buy, and shops around to find them secondhand.</p><p>Sometimes, Nadine doesn't find the item she needs - but she still wouldn't go out and buy it new because she committed to a secondhand lifestyle.<br></p>
