I love Goodwill

It has been kind of warm here the last few days. Yesterday it was 80, today it was 85 and humid. Definitely shorts and t-shirt/tank top weather.

I went to put shorts on Jacob yesterday and realized that all the shorts and short sleeved shirts that I had bought him 2 months ago were all TOO SMALL!!!!! (I bought him 2T shorts and shirts) He has had a major growth spurt! Thankfully I had gotten him 2 pairs of 3T shorts, so all was not lost. But 2 pairs of shorts won't cut it for a summer wardrobe.....

So off I went to day to my favorite store for kids clothes....GOODWILL!!!!

I love the Goodwill in our town. There are actually 2 of them here. One is smaller and doesn't have a lot of clothes. The other one is huge and I can usually find what I need there. Most of the clothes that I get there look brand new and are in great shape. Today my goal was to get Jacob at least 4 pairs of shorts and 4 shirts in size 3T to get his summer wardrobe in check. So off I went with that in my mind....

And I scored!

I got Jacob 5 pairs of shorts and 5 shirts that will fit him (until his next growth spurt that is! LOL).

I got Rebecca 2 pairs of shorts, 2 shirts and a dress.
(She really didn't need any summer clothes, but she loved the Hello Kitty shirt and the Kailan shirt)

I also picked up 3 shirts for me--2 tank tops and a short sleeve shirt for work.

So all in all it was a GREAT day at Goodwill! And I have decided that the other shorts and shirts that are too small for Jacob (which I had also bought at Goodwill) will be put in our yard sale this weekend so it isn't a great loss. And anything we don't sell is being donated to that same Goodwill! So it all works out!

Have you had any luck at Goodwill or your local thrift store recently?


  1. Oh I LOVE consignment! I actually posted on the subject a short while ago here.

    You feel so good at the great stuff you walk out with for SOOO cheap!
