So, without further ado...
This past month, my trips to Goodwill were minimal. My only memorable trip coincidence with a promotion that Goodwill was running...bring in a bag of donations and receive a 30% off coupon. *See if the thrift stores you shop, have email alerts. Goodwill sends out emails with exclusive promotions, sales or giveaways.
With my 30% off coupon in hand, I found some fun and incredibly reasonably priced things.
First up, a brand new Clinique bag for $1.99.
The best part, inside included a smaller bag. The bright colors and flowers reminded me that despite the brutal winter we are having, spring will eventually arrive. For $1.40, I couldn't pass these up.
Recently, Grace was introduced to chapter books and it was, as they say, love at first sight. We devoured nearly every Junie B. Jones books. As a result, we have been scouring Goodwill's collection of books. Children's books are .59 cents. We ended up finding 6 books for $3.54, a good deal but made even better with our 30% off coupon. These books came home with us for $2.48.
No trip to Goodwill is complete without perusing the children's clothing. This time, I stumbled upon an Old Navy pea coat for $4.99 ($3.50 with the 30% off coupon). It's way too big for petite little girl now. I figured, pea coats don't go out of style so it's the perfect thing to buy and save for her.
I spotted these brand new cowboy boots. If Grace read my blog, she would certainly correct me and say that these were cowgirl boots. Regardless, I wasn't sure if they would come home with us or not. When Grace spotted not only the pink stars but the glittery stars, she was determined these boots had to come home with us. The boots were $4.99, $3.50 using our 30% off coupon.
After any holiday, Goodwill is usually well stocked with donations of unused or unwanted decorations. They are often marked down additionally, just to get them off of the shelves. All Christmas decorations were 50% off. When I saw these colorful glass bird ornaments, I couldn't resist...even though it meant I would have to dig out our recently stored Christmas decorations to store them along with. With my 30% off coupon, this set of bird ornaments were .45 cents.
This midcentury modern styled cocktail shaker by Threshold, would not leave my cart, even though I really had no purpose or need for it. No matter how much I tried to reason myself out of buying it, it still came home with me. With my coupon, it was $1.05.
Thees party hats reminded me that before long, I'll have to start thinking of Grace's 6th (!) birthday. Though I have been busy pinning ideas, I can't seem to decide on a theme. Suggestions are welcomed!
