I spent $26 at Goodwill this afternoon, and I feel great.
I love shopping at Goodwill. It makes me feel lucky, and smart, and frugal.
I passed Goodwill as I was walking home from the library. I'd been thinking about getting some new (well, new to me) jeans and a sweatshirt or two if I could find one, so I thought I'd go in to see what they had.
What they had was a sale. Every single piece of clothing in the store was just $2.
I walked out of there with 8 pieces of clothing - plus 5 wine glasses (also $2 each), which made me happy, since I broke the last decent wine glass in the house last week.
What does $16 get you on $2-day at Goodwill?
- 3 pairs of jeans
- a nice all-wool Ann Taylor blazer for work
- a dinner-casual black sweater
- 2 decent ribbed sweaters - one black, one grey - suitable for work
- a really lovely silk Nordstrom paisley blouse
At regular Goodwill used-clothing prices, these would have added up to $50 on an ordinary day.
I really like my new jeans, I love my new green silk shirt, and I feel terrific.
