Thrift is most commonly used when talking about “thrift stores”, which are stores that sell old or used items at a cheap price. Many people go “thrift shopping” to find cheap goods.

Thrifty is similar to Frugal.

Thrift is to save money, by not spend money or minimise the amount spent.

It is to maximise value, not necessarily to save.

“When it was time to buy a car, my dad was so frugal, he spent weeks looking for the best deal.”

The second sentence does no say he brought a cheap car and was thrifty. It may be a very expensive car, but he got the best price on it.
