Best Goodwill Score... EVER!

So our Indiana Goodwill stores have a Sunday special going on.  All "color of the week" clothing items are only 99 cents!  To me, this makes it worth it to take the time to peruse the aisles.  

Naturally, this makes me more vulnerable to buy non-clothing (not on sale) items.  John and I love Norman Rockwell, so these puzzles were perfect.  We also enjoyed doing a Mickey Mouse mosaic puzzle, so I'm looking forward to the day when we have time to do this Tigger one.
Norman Rockwell Puzzles   $15 x 2 = $30
Monopoly Card Game $40
Tigger Mosaic Puzzle $45
Shelf  $10
Dora Dominos  $5
Total Retail Amount (non-clothing items):   $130

 Alfani pants  $70
Ann Taylor Loft pants  $60
New York & Co. pants $40
Express Design Studio pants  $60
St. John's Bay shorts (tags on)  $28
9 other kid clothing items
Total Retail Amount (clothing items):  $258


I paid a whopping $49 before tax for all of the above items.

Oh and the big kicker... I also snagged THIS!!!

...making our GRAND RETAIL TOTAL $588!!

Whoever priced this baby must have originally thought it was just plastic.. I have no idea, but I'm thankful that this mostly intact (missing oven door), clean set of kitchen furniture was only $16 of that previously mentioned $49 total.  

Like I said... It was a good day.


  1. Aw, fun! I would have loved to have been there to see this shopping experience in action because just reading about it is getting me excited for you! I get a lot of satisfaction out of finding great deals too!

    (At first I thought you were excited about spending $40 for the monopoly game and I was really confused how that could be a good deal but then I caught on, hehe!)

  2. I started following you from Malachi's blog. I also go to Willow Creek which is how I heard about your journey.

    I am also a huge fan of GW! I always find the best stuff for a fraction of the price! Congrats on your great finds! That kitchen is AWESOME:)
