I Scored Big at Goodwill.

While we were out running around we went to Goodwill. I got a brand name high end bathing suit that was new and never worn for myself. There is a cute craft I was going to need to buy some wooden pieces for from Hobby Lobby. They had just what I needed for less than half price. I wanted a metal bucket to plant an herb in. Got it. Before we moved we got a great buy on a softtub hot tub. It is set up and filled in my yard. We need to get the wiring done to plug it in, but in this heat a cool tub felt great. And it is in my own back yard. It has been a really good day.

It sounds like bliss to have your very own hot tub in your yard. Is Goodwill a charity shop?

Goodwill is a national organization. It runs thrift shops, giving people who are down on their luck or under educated, or handicapped a chance to learn how to work in a retail shop while taking care of the stores.

I haven't come across any good deals lately, and then the van is being a hindrance anyway...had to put the new starter in this week and two weeks ago had to replace a brake caliper...hopefully nothing else goes wrong for a while

When real life expenses like car repairs come along I have to avoid shopping there or anywhere.

That hot tub sounds interesting! Is it the same size as regular ones?

This is not the largest size, not the smallest either. I guess you can get one that holds 140 gallons, mine is probably a 220 gallon. It is big enough for four people if you get along okay. You can look them up online, it is called SoftTub.

We love going to Goodwill and Savers. Its been a while since we've gone to either, in part because we just don't have any place to put more stuff in until we figure out where to put Maggie's stuff!

I understand that. I hardly ever go to any thrift shops anymore. I am not organized enough with the stuff I have.

Not a bad haul from a used store, never know if you will find what you want, or things you didnt know you wanted until you found them!

I really needed a bathing suit, as I have not located mine since we moved. This one was Croft and Barrow brand.

I like them for that reason. I know some people look for those types of things to sell at a profit on e Bay.

In this heat having a cool tub in your back yard works perfect. Great finds at Good Will

You never know what treasure you might find at Goodwill and other thrifts. Most of the time I come away empty handed but the fun is in the search.

I do not always come home with "stuff" but when I do it is well worth the search.

I think you are capable of so much. People probably need to pick up their share of the work though.
