Successful Trip To Goodwill

July 19th, 2008 at 10:08 am

I've been wanting to check out the Goodwill store we have in town for a while. Since DS was having a restless morning we decided to go. I would say it was a pretty successful trip. Well....they were kind of skimpy on DS' size (24mths-2T) so I was only able to find a pair of overalls for him to wear now, but I did find a pair of brand new shorts (retail tags still attached). They were 4T but they were a solid color so they won't go out of style and he'll grow into them.

I then went to look for clothes for DH. That man won't throw anything away not to mention he has no shame. He'll go to work in SUPER faded shirts. I can't stand it! He's a professional, he should look like one. So, when I buy him clothes, I throw out how ever many faded shirts to match. I was able to find him 2 Izod polo shirts and an Old Navy polo shirt all in great condition.
Since I have been losing weight, my pants I've got don't fit. I've slowly been putting them on Ebay. I was able to find two pairs of Tommy Hilfiger jeans, and 2 pairs of black pants for work (The Limited and Old Navy.) All were in great condition! I was hoping I'd be able to find a pair of Express Editor pants, but sadly I wasn't able to.

Everything I bought I felt was a great deal. Especially since I was able to get name brands, but I saved the best deal for last. I was able to find a 1lb bread maker for $6! Granted, it is a smaller one I was still stoked to find it. With only 2 adults and a toddler I think it should work. I brought it home, cleaned it, and then went online to find the manual. I was excited that I was able to find the manual and the recipes! Right now I'm making some cheesy bread to go with dinner!

All in all our trip was good. I was just kind of disappointed there wasn't a lot there for DS. I'm thinking I may go check out the Goodwill close to work and see if they have stuff for him.

    You sure did get some great deals!

    For your son, have you tried looking at children's consignment shops? A friend of mine introduced me to one where she had sold a bunch of her childrens clothes, and then used that credit to buy some more. At the time, another friend of mine was having a little boy, so I picked up 8 outfits, plus a nice winter jacket for less than $40 (sized between 3 mos and 18 mos).

    Congrats on the great deals you found! Unfortunately the Goodwill stores in my area all seem to be overpriced. I try to only hit them on their big sale days, when not only one color is half off. And then I pick up all the Target stuff which they always seem to have plenty of.

    Many Goodwill stores receive new stock every day. Keep checking, and you'll find lots of children's clothing.
    Once every month or six weeks they will get more stock in, and have a 99 cents sale. All children's items will be 99 cents, and often jeans are 99 cents, then, too.
