Goodwill shopping

May 29th, 2011 at 06:14 am

Went to Goodwill yesterday and did some very sensible shopping, I think. I spent $10 on clothes -- a new pair of khaki pants and dark brown capris. The khaki pants were a definite need, as my old ones are too large to wear now. The capris will just add a little variety to my wardrobe. Then I found 3 figurines for my DIL's Christmas village ($1.50) and a boxed set of tin ornaments ($1.99) which will be a nice gift for anyone -- it goes in my stash.

I carried around four plates and bowl in classic blue onion pattern before I finally put them back. I just wasn't feeling it. I have always thought I would like to collect blue and white china in different patterns, but right now I don't have the space to store it. And with my quiet lifestyle, how much do I need? I already have 10 place settings of Blue Willow. I think I'll be satisfied with that.

    Sometimes I find little nonsense things to covet at the thrift stores. But where would I put them? My small house saves money in trinkets denied!

    i guess it might be different where you are, but when i read your post, i remembered that good will here is having a half price off everything sale tomorrow!

    Wise move. One can be just as addicted to Goodwill shopping as Tiffany shopping, and it can be just as bad - worse because you can buy more and really start that hoarding pile.
