I have to say that with the current ecomonic recession we are in, I have discovered Goodwill or GW as I like to refer to it. I am amazed at the awesome finds that are there, mostly in the housewares. I do still check TJMaxx, Homegoods, & Walmart, but sometimes find more unique & cheaper items at GW.
I don't think I've spent over $4 per item on anything. They have great 50% off days and if you are on their email distribution list, you get monthly calendar updates which tell you whats on sale that day. Here are a few of my favorites: This basket was at Goodwill probably because the handle broke. Solution: go outside & find your favorite stick & spray paint it black! Done.
And last but not least, one of my favorite finds of all which gets used often with Mr. Rodney Strong. Have a great weekend!
