@coryleemusic told her followers on TikTok: “Alright friends, this is my number one thrifting hack. So, I always go thrifting wearing a belt.

“It’s like a personal measuring tape. I just take it off and I try it on pants that I like.”

Now, that is quite clever, if there’s no changing rooms and apparently there aren’t at Value Village!

She continued: “So, these ones would be too small sadly,” she says about one pair of pants.

“And I was looking at these kind of ’80s cords, so I tried the belt on those – perfect! So, yeah, I always go thrifting with a belt!’

So… belts off, it is. Our shopping goddess shows us how, flipping her belt at the waist of pants she loves and then finds out if they’ll fit her that way!

Clever, you might say. Well, some think it’s actually genius according to feedback online.

Shoppers of the world salute you lady!
