Have I told you about my obsession....

....with Goodwill? Seriously, my husband and I have become professional goodwill shoppers! Who would have ever thought that they had great things there!? I am thinking of taking pictures of my complete outfits that I get while shopping at only Goodwill...then posting the total cost. You would be so impressed with my frugal self. lol.

I found my Christmas outfit. It's a Gap shirt dress (Black) and some Guess high heel shoes (red). It's super cute. The dress was $4.00 and the shoes were $3.00. We are on the look out for a fab red purse, and a black tench coat to go with. ;)

Here's an outfit that I wore the other night...EVERYTHING was from Goodwill (except the panties, bra and undershirt. Those are things I don't buy used. lol) BTW, the tag was still on the shirt...It was never worn.



The jacket was $9.99, the shirt was $2.00 (Old Navy), the jeans were $3.00 (Gap), the shoes were $3.00. Under $20.00. ;)

Oh, if you look in my entertainment tower you will see the white vases I got for .50 a piece, as well as that frame on top that was only $1. I spray painted it black. Perfect. Oh, I almost forgot, the clear glass vase right next to the frame was also bought at Goodwill for .50. It was a set of two and I put beans in it to go with my fall decor. lol

Wow! It's cute too! I think our nearest goodwill is a ways a way from us, but maybe I should venture over there just once to see if I come across anything.

Heeheee...that's the first place I look for stuff for me all the time. I got three pairs of night shorts, and three pairs of daytime bottoms for $14.00 the last time I went.

I love GOODWILL!!! My only problem now.... moving across the country, we went on a search for a Godwill and walked in and their prices were outragious!!! It was like stepping into a K-mart. I went online and done some research... Come to find out this particular store (actually about 8 in my region) is privately owned and carries the name "?? Goodwill Industries" but only advertise the name "Goodwill" on their store front. Of course, they don't carry the logo.

That isn't the REAL Goodwill that I know aka low prices, and portion of the proceeds is put back into the community. People are donating their stuff to these stores thinking it is the well known Goodwill organization that helps others... in my heart I really want to go picket them. LOL.
