The house is full of sick kids and we are the the bleak gray days of winter phase. I needed a break today, so I headed to Goodwill. I love thrifting. It appeals to my cheapskate side. It appeals to my don’t like to try it on side. It appeals to my environmentalist side.
I headed into the store with one goal: buy a blanket to put in Bramble’s kennel. I had a 30% off coupon in my pocket that I was hoping to use. I was met with a busy store full of things to look at. It was so full of people I didn’t even get to look at the kitchen area (which is OK, because I have a lot of kitchen stuff already. How much stuff? I have a backup waffle iron in the basement just in case my primary waffle iron dies.).
I spent $23.97 ($34.24 before my coupon). I picked up a summer dress, a new pair of jeans, a pair of capri seersucker pants and a pair of shorts. It is the middle of January in the Midwest, but I’m already looking forward to summer. I found a small roof rack, perfect for carrying bulky camping items, for under $5. I also found a blanket for the kennel.
I love thrifting. I could not justify going out and buying a bunch of clothes for myself at the mall, but I can do it at Goodwill.
Do you like to thrift? Have you found any good deals lately?
