Goodwill Before Thanksgiving

Today DH and I decided we didn't want to sit around the house all day so I suggested we go check out the Habitat for Humanity Restore in town. I read everyone's adventures at these stores and see pictures of all the great furniture and cabinets that they sell. We finally found it and went inside to see what great treasures we could find only to find disappointment instead. Our store is small and doesn't have nothing in the line of furniture.

So since we live a good piece out of town we decided to go check out the two Goodwill stores so our trip wouldn't be in vain.

Apparently the Goodwill stores in town have started a new program. Using this card you can get items with a certain color tag for 50% off - today's color was purple.

I just may be tempted to stop at Goodwill more often to take advantage of the savings. At the first Goodwill I found nothing. My kids were with us and they each found a book - our total - $3.25.

The second Goodwill store brought better pickings. I've been wanting one of these for a while and am so excited to finally have one.

What is it you ask?

A shoe organizer - I wonder if I can use the fact that I have more space to store shoes as a viable excuse to buy more. I don't know if DH will buy that excuse - hehe. For a total of $19.99 it was mine. Priced a little high I know but that's the only drawback of our Goodwill stores around here are that they are very high priced. I searched online after I got home to see if I'd gotten a good price and realized that I have the shoes in there upside-down so I've got to rearrange them now.

My only other purchase was this book. I haven't seen the movie yet and may wait to watch it until after I've read the book.

I'd like to wish everyone a safe and a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Until next time . . .

Goodwill 50% day

Today while dropping off a box of items at Goodwill we noticed they had a sign that said 50%

Unfortunately, it was only 50% green tag items and everything we found didn't have a green tag. We left with a couple items for the kids.

DD found this great dress for $6.99

DS insisted he needed this pajama top to stay warm this winter - $1.99

My only item of the day was this great Valentine M&M mug - perfect for hot chocolate - .99

Until next time . . .

New Thrift Store

WOW - has it really been that long since I posted. I haven't been going to any garage sales or flea markets lately which is why I haven't had anything to share.

My mom and I were out together recently and decided to stop by a new thrift store that opened in town. She found a lighthouse sun catcher and purchased something for me also. Growing up I always had a thing for anything with peace signs on it so when we saw this we knew it had to come home with me.

Sorry about the dirt in his lap. I was so excited to share that I didn't take the time to clean him up before taking the picture.

Until next time . . .
