Digging for Bargains at Goodwill
Ok, I will admit I’ve had an on again, off again relationship to Goodwill for years. It all began with Guess triangle patches being sewn onto my Lee jeans and then, it just got worse.
I remember being in the sixth grade and spotting my ‘boyfriend’ at our local Goodwill store. I was so embarrassed I found myself hiding underneath a pile of Halloween costumes. Only later did I realize that both he and I were in the same store so there was no real need to be embarrassed…but keep in mind, I was in the sixth grade.
As I got older though, I began to have a different outlook on Goodwill. Finding Ann Taylor Loft shirts for only $3 and new shoes for $4 has lit the ‘coupon queen’ spark inside of me.
Saturday, my sister and I (with three children in tow) hit our local Goodwill. She walked away with clothes and shoes that would normally cost $130! I walked away with an obscene amount of VHS kids tapes and very happy kiddos.
All this to say, if you’ve been avoiding the Goodwill, I think it’s time to give it a second look. I’m all about nice clothes but I’m not all about paying ridiculous prices for them. For all of you Goodwill-ers, what are some of your best deals?
