I discovered something fantastic this summer, and I simply must share it with the blog world:

Goodwill (the store) is a goldmine of terrific finds, deals and creativity. Over the past couple of months, I've bought several shirts, a skirt, and a pair of rockin' awesome jeans that fit me better than most pairs I've ever owned. The shirts were around $3, the skirt $4, and the jeans were $7 plus some change. And everything I bought is in awesome, like-new condition, and it didn't smell thrift-store-funky when I bought it, which tends to be a turn-off.

I've been reading a lot of crafty/project type blogs recently, and have become so inspired to do things around my house more cheaply and creatively (and I've fallen in love with spray paint). A lot of this involves scouring thrift stores for items with potential, and re-doing them to make them what you want.

It's official. I'm no longer a department store snob. I have become a Goodwill addict. Try it. You won't be sorry. And at the end of the day, your bank account will still be smiling. :)

My sister has been shopping at Goodwill for a decade now. She gets some really good buys!
