Jeff and I went to Goodwill on Sunday to donate some things and also to take back a dvd series that I forgot I already had. We got a 20% off one item coupon for our donation and got an in store credit for our returned item since Jeff accidently threw away the receipt.
The discounted colored tag is Green this week, so I looked for green tagged items. Lucky for me, a set of drinking glasses that I had been keeping my eye on were green tagged, so I picked those up. I needed to replace some of my other ones that are getting really fogged up looking.
Steven is outgrowing all his clothes and shoes at a very rapid pace so I have been on the lookout for those items for him. We found him so cute Ninja Turtles shoes in great shape and they even light up when he walks. He is in love with them and takes great delight in seeing the lights come on when we walks or runs in them.
I have been looking for another pair of comfortable and cushioned sandals since my feet get sore really easily now. I found a pair of Aerosoles sandals that feel like you are wearing house slippers. They were the most expensive item that I found at $6.99 so I used my 20% off coupon on them.
The last item I found was the one I got free after my return of the dvd series. I was looking for more soft black capris and came across a pair of Lularoe leggings. They were in Rachel's size so I thought I would try them on and if they fit me, they would fit her. She loves their leggings and wears them a lot. Well I got them on and oh my goodness, they were buttery soft and so comfy. Sorry Rachel, but they are going to be mine now instead. 😉 They are perfect for those days when I am flaring and need something super soft and non binding to wear.
As you can see from my receipt, I paid $11.21 after tax for all my items. I did not think that was bad at all, especially when you consider that the little Ninja Turtle shoes for Steven cost more than all of this together if we had bought them new at Payless shoes! Not a bad day!
Great shopping! i can just picture those lights on the Ninja shoes.ReplyDelete
I went to the thrift store today. I had a 30%off coupon from donating. I knew I wasn't going to make the sale day tomorrow for seniors so went today. I found 3 books and 2 summer cotton blouses. Score.
Yay for your finds! What books did you find?Delete
Good for you!ReplyDelete
Glad you treated yourself, too. : )
Thanks Billie Jo! Praying all is well with you!Delete
Good morning - My books were:ReplyDelete
Sue Grafton's L is for Lawless;
John Grisham's The Whistler; and,
Nevada Barr's Boar Island.
Some of Grisham's books I really like, some are too violent for me. Will see about this one. The other two are mysteries.
I miss the thrift stores that have the colored tags and the 'color of the day'. Made shopping more fun, imo.
Off to water the whole garden at one of my community gardens...no rain in sight today. Ha!
Take good care,
I love Sue Grafton's books. :) My father knows John Grisham. :)Delete
Good deals. We just had a Goodwill open a few months ago in my area. I have not got to visit. I may make it a plan this week.ReplyDelete
I hope you find some treasures there!Delete
Just wanted to pop in to tell you that wiping your glasses with a little vinegar water will take away the fogginess.ReplyDelete
Nice score at the thrift! I’m on the loo-out for cropped linen pants. Nothing, so far. Looking’s half the fun, though!
Thank you for that tip Debbie, I will for sure be trying it! I do hope you find those pants you are looking for soon. :)Delete
Great deals you got there! Love those wine glasses!! Sandals looks so comfortable. I have to drive awhile to get to a Goodwill.ReplyDelete
Angela, the closest one is about half an hour away from us but it is in the same town I do most of my grocery shopping in and is across the street from Walmart. ;)Delete
You did great. Those sneakers new would be $20 which is crazy for shoes for a baby.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I thought so too!Delete
We did find one garage sale while we were camping. I got 2 small plastic containers to pack lunch items in. We seem to go through those quite rapidly, as they get microwaved and ruined regularly. Well worth the 25c each!ReplyDelete
I am glad you found some good deals. I'm sure he loves light-up shoes. What little boy wouldn't? So fun!
Hi Becky, you know I have yet to go to a garage sale this season. I may just have to try and make it to one this coming weekend.Delete
You found some great bargains! One of these days, I will take myself to the nearby Goodwill and see what I find!ReplyDelete
Bless, you really should. There are all kinds of great deals there to be found!Delete
