I heart my GW store!

 

GW is code for Goodwill.  I love my GW. I am not kidding. Ok, I started out at first being kind of embarrassed about going there. Browsing around, trying on things and always trying to keep a low profile.  I then started to open my eyes to who and  what was around me and  I began to really see the big picture.  Here is the skinny on my GW. 

One, all kinds of people go there. You’ve got the people who really need clothes at a cheaper price, you’ve got the work  crowd looking for their wardrobe fillers, you’ve got smart mother’s looking for hardly worn clothes for their rapidly growing children (this is where I started out), you’ve got the  hip crowd looking for cool vintage,  you get the point. The GW has something for everyone.

Two, it is so good for the environment because you are recycling, you are not wasting precious resources, you are giving care and love to items that someone did not want anymore.

Third, you can yourself recycle what you don’t need or want anymore, keeping things out of landfills, plus you know the drill one man’s treasure…

So, basically it is all good, and you can really get some things for a fraction of the cost. All you have to do is imagine… then it will be! 

Example.. my little girl wants to be a tap dancer… she taps in all her shoes, so, I imagined that she would need a pair of tap shoes…. big sister always needs tee’s. Mama needed new boots and a purse. Fun fabric and pretty brown bears can always be made into various pj’s and whatnot..and the bear, well, let’s think Christmas cheer!

So… here is what I needed and what I received.. all for $23.00

I heart my GW!!!

  1. Good finds and I am so with you…I love our GW, VV (Value Village) and SA (Salvation Army). 🙂 I once found a Vera Bradley bag for $2.95 and I have found lots of other goodies. There is a SA in a neighboring high rent district and the parking lot is always full of high end cars because they are not spending all of their $$$ on disposable items…the money people spend on 300% marked up clothes from the store could be socked away into a 401K, stock market, college fund, etc. Ok, I am off of my soapbox. 🙂

  2. I am so diggin’ that sheet! I, too, love my GW. Mostly I find sheets to make things out of. I have quite a pile going for some summer skirts next year! You did really well at GW. I wish I had a SA too for variety, but won’t complain!

  3. Great bargains Jenn. Lynda & I went thrifting on Monday and found a couple of items for our homes ~ take a look at our blogs to see what we got.
