GOODWILL Glory

Last month I missed the 1/2 off Goodwill Day
because I was in Abilene with Dad having his surgery.
AND... I can tell you I have been waiting with GREAT anticipation
for the 3rd Wednesday of this month..
space
We had to do several things today
and I didn't get to spend hardly any time DIGGING..
However I did manage to find some incredible things...
I got Brad this shirt and 2 ties..
The ties were a grand total of 50 cents a piece...
NOW who could resist that deal!
space
I also found him a Great Sports coat..
He is going to a funeral this week and after a trip to the cleaners..
IT will be "the find of the day."
space
It
It was a Christian Dior for $3.50.....
Who could turn it down.
space
I didn't dig much today through "the STUFF"
because I was running low on time,
and "STUFF" takes me hours to go through.
I did make a quick glance and found my new
Favorite Bowl...
space
I turned it over and WHAM....
I knew I'd gotten a good deal - $1.50
space
This was a silly thing...
BUT I'm so excited to get it washed and put my sugar in it..
Tomorrow I'm gonna feel like I've got a little secret
as I put sugar in my coffee..
SO MUCH FUN for 50 cents !!!
space
As I was checking out I saw this belt buckle on the counter..
I asked if it was some one's and she said NO..
I said "it is now"
Silver Buckle $1.00
space
2 pair of new Christmas pj pants...
space
The best fitting jacket I've found in FOREVER...
and a new white button up (you can't have too many of those)
space
3 new( to me) shirts...
YES I know some people gag about wearing other people's clothes...
But NOT ME!!!
After one wearing they're all used anyway..
I just pretend like one of my friends gave them to me..
It just happens to be friends I've never met. haha
space
Another fun jacket...
I'm gonna sew some stuff on this one..
Not sure what yet, but for $2.00 I can't really mess it up.
space
And LOOK at the Brand...
SEE they do have nice stuff in GOODWILL if you take the time to DIG.
space
The best pair of worn in jeans..
Now I don't care who you are
There is nothing better than a pair of soft, worn-in jeans..
AND I didn't even have to do the WORK..
space
2 MORE jackets..
I hit the sweet spot with those today...
space
I saw the brand and know how much it really costs..
So after a run through the washer my $2.85 will be well worth it.
space
I buy almost everything Brady wears at some type of KID's REsale Place.
He is so hard on his stuff, and it's not like he's heading to the OPERA
so I figure why would I spend any more than that.
space
SO... Half off of this, is just a deal that no gal can pass up!!
space
I didn't find many little pants in his size today..
But I did find a pair of U.T. sweat pants, some camo, and a new pair of pj. pants.
space
OF course he was with me...
SO I had to find him some entertainment while I DUG....
Grand total of $5.00.
EVEN Wal-Mart can't beat that....
and we got a new Monkey to boot...
space
May we always remember that...
"One man's junk is another man's treasure."

Reading this post was ALMOST as fun as a trip to Goodwill! Ilove to shop there myself. In fact, last week I found a great oatmeal colored fisherman's sweater, a plaid flannel shirt, and white linen Ann Taylor blazer. But I must admit I totally covet your silver belt buckle!
