Goodwill - It's the Place to Shop

We've always donated our clothes, household items, and unused toys to places like Goodwill. I've never really gone INTO the stores, though. About 3 weeks ago, after dropping off 8 bags of unneeded/grown out of clothing and toys, I took CED and MED into the Goodwill store near my house. We pawed through racks of clothing and browsed our way through the shoes. In the end, we left with some books for my classroom library, a cute Gap halter top for CED, and two pairs of shoes for MED (one an almost brand new pair of pink Converse). K has been saying for quite a while that he wants to go into the Goodwill to see what they have. Today, we took that trip. He was amazed at all the clothing that still had tags on it and a couple of items even looked recently pressed. K ended up finding a couple of long sleeved button down shirts for himself and JED found a funny t-shirt and a button down shirt. But the girls and I hit the JACKPOT in the shoe section today. I found a pair of black Mary Jane STRIDE RITE shoes for MAD for a whopping $1.99. Stride Rite! $1.99! And if that isn't exciting enough, we found a pair of kids Keen shoes (hiking shoes - brand new cost about $80) that fit CED. Total cost? $5.99. CED also found a pair of brown Mary Jane style BASS shoes for $5.99. I found a great pair of brown strappy heeled BASS sandals that looked like they'd been worn once for $5.99. Can you believe that??? Bass shoes, Stride Rite shoes, and Keen shoes. We arrived there at just the right time. We bought about $250 worth of shoes for $20. Oh, how I love Goodwill.
