So, without further ado...
This past month, my trips to Goodwill were minimal. My only memorable trip was on the 15th. Depending on your area, Goodwills will offer special discount days or half off days. On the 15th, bonus scratch off tickets are handed out to customers with a Goodwill card (a preferred card for Goodwill). The scratch off ticket gives you the opportunity to save an extra 10, 15 or 20 percent off your purchase.
This month, I bought the following.
For just over $18.
First up, a brand new, still with tags, Pairs in Pears. This retails for $14.95 and I paid $1.99 (minus 10%).
I can't seem to resist vintage tins. This one, at .99 cents (minus 10%), was no exception.
Goodwill is also a great place to shop craft materials. I've found new yarn, ribbons, threads and craft kits before. This time, I found a wooden embroidery hoop for .49 cents (minus 10%).
I love having a stash of wooden embroidery hoops on hand to make things like my make a wish embroidery or...
an arrangement of custom felt bunnies.
But back to my thrifting finds.
This Estee Lauder toiletry bag, was a bit of an impulse buy but for $3.99 (minus 10%) I decided to indulge.
I got Grace some chalk a-doos for .99 cents (minus 10%). I love chalk holders and Grace loves princesses, so it was a win win.
I found a cute dress for 3.99. A good tip, when buying clothes, look them over for any rips, tears or missing buttons. Most thrift stores will offer a discount if you find a flaw. This dress was missing a button and I was given $1 discount, plus I got an extra 10% off with my scratch off card.
I also found 2 work shirts for my husband. Kenneth Cole and Tailorbyrd for $4.99 a piece ($10 total, minus 10%).
The Tailorbyrd shirt had this cute lime green pelican embroidered below the last button.
My total $21.42. I spent over $20 (which Goodwill gives10% discount everyday for spending) and I I had a scratch off for an additional 10% off. With my discounts my total was $17.36. With tax, I was just over $18.
Now it's your turn. What thrifted finds have you splurged on this past month? Or what thrifted finds did you pass up?
Until next time, happy thrifting. Linked up to:
