My Goodwill Finds for March 25, 2016

March 25, 2016 2:26pm CST
Yesterday I talked one of my good friends into going to the Goodwill with me. We ventured out at 9 this morning and headed out. There is a Goodwill in our town, but wanted to go to the one in the next state. It is not far from where we live so the cost of gas wasn't a worry. It was nice to catch-up with her. We chatted the along the way and yes, throughout the store while we were shopping. I found some great buys. A new apple peeler/corer from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It was priced at $5.99, and was the most expensive item I purchased. This item was new and never used, however, it did not have the box. Excellent buy, when bought new it is $19.99. The laundry basket was $1.99, I found it in a bin of baskets. Sold!!! I will use it for my yarn and projects that I am currently working on. This will sit next to me near the sofa. The small purse will be used to bring only the essentials I will need such as my license, a couple of dollars, nail clippers, lip balm, and eyeglasses. I hate carrying my larger purse with me. Have to leave it in the car when before going into a client's home. A smaller purse is easier to conceal. This was only $3.50. I found the green shirt for $3.50 and the black jeans (for my son) for $3.99. Great time, great buys, good fun. We are going to do it again soon! Can't wait for tag sales to start up! Dusty was keeping guard of my finds.

@TiarasOceanView It was the third item I found that I had to have. The first was the peeler, second the basket.

We have two Goodwill stores about 5 miles apart. I love those places. I love the thrill of the hunt! We have a Salvation Army store and a charity shop nearby too. Fun. Fun. Fun. Glad you found some great bargains!!!

We had a Salvation Army store, but it closed down. I was not happy when it closed. That was my store to shop first for purses for me and jeans for my husband.

@Hatley I nearly bought a few more items, but decided to stick with just what I could "use" and not what I wanted.

Yes I do. Almost didn't buy the purse, then I remembered my husband just bought a new bow. Sold!

@ElusiveButterfly the bow for hunting or just for recreation.

@amadeo my husband is an avid hunter. He is trying to get me to get my hunting license. Haven't made it to that point yet. Not sure I really want it.

Awesome! I LOVE the Goodwill. Not sure if you guys have this promotion but here if you donate a bag (any size) to them you get a 25% off coupon. Which is nice.

Now that you mention it, I remember seeing that not long ago. I will have to inquire about it the next time I visit our local store.

I could open up my own thrift shop I think. I love going in and finding those kinds of stores. And finding the treasures.

My best friend said she wanted to open a thrift shop in her basement. I have told her that I would help her with it if she was serious about it.

You do seem to have found some bargains. I wonder why it is that I only seem to find tat if I venture into the charity shops.
