I have a problem (well, probably more than one but this is the one I am admitting to today). I love Goodwill. It started innocently enough, I stopped by one in the large town where we go shopping (about 35 minutes away). I was looking for some cool old stuff to re-do and I could not believe what I found. From name brand clothing for the boys, hey, they grow through it so fast I am happy when I can pick of jeans that look like they have never been worn to a denim couch slipcover (for the cabin) with the tag still on it to tons of dress-up wear and homeschool books galore.
Big Buckaroo is getting a bit concerned and I think he is looking for some type of Goodwill Addicts Group to send me to. But, people, have you ever been to Goodwill? If you find a good one, it is a goldmine!
I would like to share a small sampling of my great purchases from this weeks shopping trip.
Last week, I lucked up on a red duster for Little Buckaroo that may not have ever been worn, then this week, I found a duster for Littlest Buckaroo. Total for 2 dusters: $4.50
The Buckaroo's room is decorated in a rustic, western theme so of course when I saw that this lampshade is the exact colors of their room, I had to fork over the $2.00 for it. Now, I don't have a lamp for it yet, but I am sure I will find one while quenching my Goodwill addiction.
Check to see if there is a Goodwill in your area, you might be surprised at what you will find, plus each time you shop at Goodwill, you contribute to the well-being of less fortunate people in your community.
