I practically bought a whole new winter wardrobe the other day.
And, Jim didn’t mind!
Because I bought it all from the Goodwill Store!
As you probably know, the clothing items at the Goodwill Store are typically marked between $3 and $6 each… Well, on my most recent trip there, they were having a “50% Off Everything” sale.
So, you can just imagine the LOAD of clothes (and purses! and winter coats!) I was able to get for about $70! All stuff in “like-new” condition. And lots of name-brand stuff! (Liz Claiborne, Eddie Bauer, Ann Taylor)
To make it even better, I discovered they also have a “frequent shopper” card where you can get your card punched each time you spend $20 there. (Not to mention that, on certain days, you even get double punches.) For every $100 you spend, you get $20 in FREE merchandise!
Yep, it’s a bargain-hunter’s paradise.
And I love it whenever someone comments on my sweater and I proudly tell them, “It was $1.50!”
Always on the lookout for a good bargain, I consider myself a frugal person — but not cheap. And not afraid to spend money on the things that matter. I like to share good deals with others when I find them. One of my favorite ways to save money is to reuse items in ways other than their intended purpose — so I write a lot about outside-the-box ideas that most people wouldn't think of! When I'm not saving money or looking for good deals, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
