Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I trust you all had a wonderful weekend!
If you read my post on Saturday you know I went to Goodwill for their annual 50% off sale and it was like a department store’s Grand Opening. The place was PACKED, there were long lines waiting for the dressing rooms, people pushing full carts of clothing, laughter and excitement when new items with tags were found and clerks rolling out full racks every 5 minutes, it was an amazing sight to see. Although I had only planned to go to Middletown, I kinda sorta wished I had also driven down to Smyrna and Dover.
I did however go with the purpose of getting an “I Love Thrifting” t-shirt, which Goodwill introduced earlier this month for $12.00. I have never ever purchased an item at Goodwill for that much, but the $12 cost for t-shirt is supporting a worthy cause and I am a proud Goodwill VIP who loves to thrift!
I was also intent on finding clothing for the Fall because I have more than enough shorts, tanks and skirts for the summer season which is rapidly coming to an end. I thrifted a dress, 2 tops, a pair of culottes and two maxi skirts all for under $14.00 – #winning
I can’t wait for the next big sale and if you are not a Goodwill VIP, it’s free to sign up and you’ll receive emails with dates for these events.
Linking up today with Mommy Monday Blog – come on over and join in on the fun!
Have a fantabulous day!
My co-worker knows that I love thrifting, she and I have even gone to Goodwill together during a lunch break. She knows there is no shame in my game when it comes to thrifting clothes especially for my sons. Last week she had a bag of clothes in her car that her son had outgrown, and asked if I wanted them. I could sense she was a little hesitant with the offer because she followed up with, “if you can’t use them, you can donate them to Goodwill”. Of course, I said, “yes”. Later in the day she put the bag into my car so I didn’t see the contents until I got home that evening. This bag contained some great stuff for my son who will be starting back to school next week!
The shopping bag was filled with shirts, pants, shorts and jeans, all in excellent condition and smelling freshly laundered. The name brand items included Old Navy, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, JC Penney’s and The Gap. My sons were thrilled with the haul and each went through the items designating which ones they wanted. The pants fit nicely around the waist, but hubby will need to alter the length because my co-worker’s son stands 6 ‘ 8″, taller than anyone in my house! This was my first FREE thrifted haul ever!!!
Yesterday I hit up the Goodwill stores in Thorndale and Chadds Ford, PA. The clerks were busily filling the racks with Spring and Summer wear and I was able to snag a few items to add to my wardrobe. Today I am taking a box to the Goodwill in Middletown because for everything I bring home, I remove something from my closet and donate.
I’ve decided to take pictures while in the store even though other customers look at me like…”who is she and why is she taking pictures”, it makes me feel like Re’gine in the episode of “Living Single” when she pulled together an outfit while working at “Le Rag Bin” for the soap opera “Palo Alto” – Smooches!
