Every week Community Spotlight will showcase one of the amazing communities you can find with Thredd. Today’s post is about r/BuyItForLife, an extremely useful group that shares “high quality, durable, and practical products that can be bought once and used for life.”

I found r/BuyItForLife while shopping for a new winter jacket. Turns out L.L.Bean is pretty popular over there! (Also on r/frugalmalefashion, which you can check out if you’re interested)

Clicking the top post gave me a great overview of what people thought about the L.L.Bean brand. Clicking into the r/BuyItForLife community, however, was the jackpot.

This page is the hub where the community shares information with each other. You can subscribe to the page to keep up-to-date!

Once I found this gem I searched for “winter” in their historical posts and was not disappointed. I never even heard of Carhartt before but apparently their jackets are cheaper than Canada Goose and can last over a decade!

r/BuyItForLife helped me save money, time, and the environment. I hope more people take advantage of this amazing resource! Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Community Spotlights!
