I Got It @Goodwill

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

 

Tonight is the night…is the night…is the night…for another major SNOWSTORM – gotta love it right – NOPE!  I don’t think the Robin’s in our neighborhood believes it either because they have been flying around enjoying the sun-filled days.  I truly feel in my heart of hearts that this will be the last big winter snow storm of the season, what do you think?

One good thing about this month is every Sunday all adult winter clothing is just $2.00 and children’s clothing only $1.00 at Goodwill stores in Delaware and Delaware County.  Last Sunday I had to meet up with one of the Runway models, so I took advantage of the day to stock up on more sweaters, seems like I’ll get a chance to wear them all in this never ending cold winter weather.

I Got It @Goodwill !

 

This Merona from Target colorblock sweater wasn’t part of the sale because it was new with tags, but when I saw it I grabbed it.   I knew it would compliment a skirt that was previously thrifted and each piece cost only $3.75.  What do you think?

Yes, I am wearing peep-toe booties in the snow!  They are attention brand by Kmart, purchased a few years ago and no my toes are not cold (Miss Terri).

I couldn’t pass up this $2.00 Elizabeth Arden tote because it was the perfect size to carry to work.  It’s roomy enough to hold my camera case and lunch bag as well as anything else I might need for the day AND the color – perfectly matches the outfit!!  #winning

I don’t know about you, but I simply love finding these thrifted treasures and each week I’ll feature a different sweater as long as the weather holds out so that might be until June!

Thrifted Tuesday

Hello friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and was able to do something special with the extra hour on Sunday.  

As you know, I’ve been on a mini self-imposed shopping freeze so I didn’t need to…but I wanted to…therefore, I did!  I thawed the freeze just a bit and this is the result of a mini thrifted haul from GW Boutique in Newark!  It was my first time at this location on the campus of The University of Delaware, but it definitely will not be my last.

Goodwill Saturday Sale

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!

Goodwill Sale 2

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

Closet Cleanout Continues

Hello Friends and Happy Monday…Monday…Monday, I hope your weekend was all that you wanted it to be and then some!

One of my weekend missions is to have all of the closets cleaned out by the end of the summer…or at least all of the bedroom closets cleaned out!  Last Saturday after working with my son in his, we decided to store the sweaters and sweatshirts in Original Space Bags which were purchased from Ross

Summer Shorts Haul from Goodwill

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

After all the cleaning of the closets I realized that I still didn’t have a decent pair of summer shorts.  I also needed wanted a white denim skirt to wear with a pair of blue and white Polka Dot flats.  Not wanting to pay retail because I can’t wear shorts to work I instead headed to the GW Boutique in Exton.

I hadn’t been to this location in almost a year and it had definitely changed.  They expanded into the vacant shoe store next door to make it larger with a better footprint.

OOTD – Kloset Keepers

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

If you are fortunate enough to have an extra day off, I hope you are enjoying it, but if like me you are back to work, I hope you are also enjoying it – at least it’s quiet.  Not only is it quiet, but it is raining and dreary unlike the sunshine and warmth of the weekend, it would have been a perfect day to sleep in!

OOTD 5 28 13 077

 

I spent the majority of Saturday, 9 hours to be exact, in my closets sorting through items that I haven’t worn or no longer fit and I still have too many clothes!  I will be sending boxes to my girlfriend for her daughters as well as donating to Goodwill.

I am wearing two kloset keepers because first of all I love skirts and secondly, the side embellishments on this top is unique.

3 Generations Saving at The Salvation Army

On Friday I had the pleasure of spending the day with my girlfriend, her mother and her daughter, 3 generations on a mission to thrift 2 outfits for less than $10.00 each from The Salvation Army Family Store.  Driving north in the drizzling rain to Wilmington in anticipation of thrifting was a great way to start my vacation day.

The Salvation Army Family Store 054

The layout of The Salvation Army Family Store made it easy to maneuver the shopping carts throughout the floor and in between the racks, making it easier to locate bargains.  We started at the front racks, filled with skirts, blazers, pants and tops organized by color and then worked our way back to the dresses, finding both casual and dressier attire.

Aisles

The price points for clothing at The Salvation Army Family Store is higher than that of Goodwill but there are still bargains to be had.  I found a pair of new, white Liz Claiborne jeans for $4.99, a perfect wardrobe addition for the summer! The “color of the day” was pink, which meant 50% off all clothing and shoes with a pink tag, and we each found at least one pink tag item.

The shoe racks were filled with a variety including Anne Klein, Steve Madden and Nine West pumps, Merrell Ortholite, Skechers and Enzo Angioline sandals, which I purchased, a little pricey at $14.99, but still a bargain because they can originally sell for $59.00.

The Salvation Army Family Store 068

Thrifting with the 3 generations of ladies at The Salvation Army Family Store was enjoyable as well as satisfying knowing that our purchases would be helping the Adult Rehabilitation Program.  The Salvation Army’s mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it was refreshing to hear the overhead announcement, “Welcome to The Salvation Army Family Store…Have a Blessed Day”

Clothing is not all you’ll find!

OOTD – Tuesday's Two Thrifted Tops & $5

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

It appears as though everyone is back to work because the commute was slow and I drove even slower trying to save gas. Can you believe the prices, I last paid $3.65 for a gallon and it’s goes up a few cents every day.  How much is it in your area?

My commute is 100 miles round trip and it is definitely putting a dent in my wallet, so to save money I have vowed not to shop until April when the prices are supposed to drop. The economic recovery is no where near where it should be and these gas prices aren’t helping!  Before my self imposed shopping freeze I was able to snag two skirts from JC Penney’s for $5 each and am wearing one of them with a thrifted top and blazer.

Goodwill Goodies – Part 2

Hello friends and happy Saturday night, I am posting Part 2 of my Goodwill Goodies from Smyrna. Last month while shopping my closet I realized that I was in need of long sleeve blouses to wear under blazers. Today I thrifted mostly dark colors but next week I will be back hunting for more colorful ones because on Saturday all clothing will be 50% off – Woohoo!

Finally found a white blouse, Pendleton

To clean and disinfect thrifted shoes I use Clorox and disinfecting spray inside, outside and on the soles.
