Is There Such A Thing As GOODWILL ANONYMOUS

Because if there is, I need to be a member...(As long as it's not inside a Goodwill building.)
I follow a couple of blogs where the women post beore/after pictures of their finds and I guess I should do that, but rarely do I buy big items. Most of what I buy are name brand clothes, books, and every now and then I'll find some sort of knick knack that reminds me of my mom or my grandma.

I'm always SO EXCITED when I hit my proverbial jackpot! Here's some of the things I've found in the last couple of days...(sadly, I haven't been in almost a month b/c of our vacation.




A pair of cute red keds sz. 5 for Hootie = $2.99




3 panels of white sheers = $3.99 2 decorative curtain rods =$4.99/ea.


White Gap short sleeve polo for RWS = $1.99



Left Behind "Kids" series. Vol. 1 & 4 (always looking for the rest) = .99/ea



I've bought boots 2 different times
for $6.99 a piece. Brand New!!!!




Love this blanket!! $2.99
I got 3 of these $1.99/ea.

Gap shorts $1.99

Umm, hello? I know it's July but they were .99


Countless GYMBOREE, GAP, CHILDREN'S PLACE,
CARTER'S sleepers, rompers, shirts = .99


Books ( I never go over $1.99)
Old Navy purses and bags I use for make up = $3.99
Once I bought Chief 6 button downs: Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Abercrombie, Pierre Cardin, and Ralph Lauren = $2.99/ea. (3 of them still had dry cleaning tags)



I can't tell you how many toys I've bought Hootie because they are all .99 or 1.99. The toys were the first to start my addiction. I went to Walmart looking for toys and found a really cute toy but it was $24.99. About a week later, Anne and I went for Starbucks on a saturday morning and decided to hit the Goodwill across the street. I found the EXACT same toy and it was $1.99!!!



It has been downhill since....The great thing is that I have been buying these toys and turning right around and selling them on Craigslist when he's done.



Lord, please forgive me and be with the starvin' pigmy's in New Guinea

LOVE ME SOME GOODWILL
