Little bit of this...little bit of that.

Hi, my name is Sarah, and I'm a Goodwill addict. It has been 2 days since my last shopping spree there. Before that...it had been TWO YEARS. I thought I could hold it off, but I succumbed once again, I made a little trip Wednesday after working out. Look-ee what I found!

The last apartment we occupied in Las Vegas was around the corner from a Goodwill...one that I would visit almost on a constant basis. I LOVED their 25 cent book days and 50 cent kids clothes days.....which is where I found THE BEST tye-dye shirt for Bella, which she STILL wears after 3 years! Anyways...it's a true addiction, I love browsing, finding odd things here and there. When I leave, I feel like I need to take a bath in bleach....but it's oh so worth it! Ü

**I'm so excited to paint that ugly shelf white for the girls room! And it was only $3!

I love those little signs, and I saw the red one last night, and totally meant to ask you about it! How great that you got it from goodwill! That star "bowl" is REALLY cute too! Those ARE great finds, we will have to go sometime together! I agree about feeling dirty after, but as long as I go without the kids it can be really fun!

What awesome finds! You'll have to let me know which Goodwill you go to.

Oh, my gosh, I get that same bleach bath feeling when I go there. You should try some of these thrift stores down the street from us. I found my super cool yellow chair there!

I never find anything good. I used to go look for clothes there in when I was in school. I am with you on the bleach bath. Yuck...and somebody tell me why the sell undies in there????

I am a fellow addict. It's true. I used to make the one hour trip to St. Louis just to go there. Imagine my surprise when one day two years ago while driving in our town, I spotted a BRAND NEW Goodwill opening just the next week! I hadn't even heard about it! I've been going pretty much weekly since then. Summers usually throw me off a bit, since there is NO WAY I'm lugging four kids there with me while I enter my "thrifting nirvana." Honestly, thrifting at the Goodwill is one more reason I'm so excited for school to start again! Yay for bargains!

LOL Stephanie! I feel the same way about it...just can't get enough. And its even better when its a NEW GOODWILL...which is like, what? An oxymoron??
