    Default Goodwill shopping

    If you have a Goodwill store near you now would be the time to start browsing it whenever you get a chance. Many merchants will donate prior to taking their inventory.Although not nearly as plentyful as last year, there are new items hitting the stores now. While I was there today I saw quite a few clothes with store tags attached (unfortunately nothing in my size), but I did get a Christmas gift(musical snow globe) for next year (new) and a new lampshade.

    I bought a beautiful wedding dress there for $30 for a play. I'm also using it if I were to ever get married.

    Goodwill is awesome.

    I bought my wedding dress at a second-hand store also and paid $25.00 for it. I just had to pay a few more dollars to have it altered. It turned out beautiful.

    This thrift store is great, When I go into the ones around here I always find new items too --The family is starting to pick up on the idea too. Has any notice within the last year that the prices have gone up here. Jeans are now $7 here.

    The prices here are higher also. I love Goodwill I find a lot of nice things when I go. My husband loves going to look at the books. He usually comes out with a handful and for only a couple bucks!

    All of our stores are higher as well even the consignment shops. When I found a pair of jeans at Target earlier this week for $8 I went ahead and bought them because used are the same price anymore.

    I quit shopping at GoodWill and most Thrift Stores in the area after they discovered the Internet searches and started setting their prices with the higher prices they found there.

    Yes they made more money for their organization and its projects, but it got to be unrealistic when people quit buying. One very nice Thrift store near me went out of business completely. Everyone loses.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
