Why Goodwill Rocks!

I just wanted to start off by saying.....this is my 300th post!! Yippee!!

Now, back to business! Check out this super cute Janie and Jack sweater I got this week at Goodwill. I was there shopping for "eBay treasures" and dug it out of the $.99 bin. When shopping for eBay I just do a quick scan.

I check: Brand Name, Condition and Price.

I didn't even see the size until I got home. It's a perfect fit for my son and it's in excellent condition/like new. I also scored him (on my second Goodwill trip this week....I only went 2 times) some Gymboree khaki shorts and a pair Children's Place footed snowman PJ's. Both also out of the $.99 bin. have to be willing to look and dig, dig, dig!!

Shopping at Goodwill has pretty gotten easy for me. I go in for eBay, and anything I find for us is just an added bonus. My poor daughter didn't get anything this week. But that's how Goodwill works. It's a treasure hunt and you can't go in looking for something specific. I usually only spend about an hour in the store, and can come out with 10-20 things. Once I'm home, I rescan items, sort to wash, etc. That's when I look at sizes and "pull things" for the kids.

Remember the new without tags Ralph Lauren shirt I got my hubby at Goodwill? Want to know what kind of treasures could be awaiting you?

How about a new Fitz and Floyd snack plate, new with tags Nike/Cowboy's infant wear, a Lacoste sweater, a Spode plate, a BCBG 100% cashmere sweater, a Gymboree Christmas dress (already sold)....the list goes on and on and on!

If you're in the Dallas area, Goodwill is having a BIG SALE today (Saturday). 50% off clothes and Christmas and 75% off Halloween. Warning!!! These sales are crazy busy, so go without kids if you can. I've already been twice this week, so I'll pass on today's sale. :)
