Goodwill Goodness!

Today the Goodwill gods were smiling on me! I made a killin'! Somedays I can go there and walk out empty handed... today made up for that!

First up - I have enough plastic stemware to have a great time out on the patio this summer. At $0.50 a pop - how could I say no?!?!

Next - You will remember that I have mentioned my desire to try to reduce waste... well I picked up these nifty plastic (read as: unbreakable) cafeteria-style trays for the kids at Yi's Summer Camp! We want to try to have more wholesome foods this year - less processed stuff - and reduce waste... I think at 2/$1 these were a great deal - I bought a dozen... (thank you to my handsome model!!)

Even Ron lucked out this trip - not shown is the brand new (I swear - no one ever wore it - you could tell) work jacket by Dickies for $9. Shown is the $20 wallet I bought him for $4!

Finally - I needed an outfit to wear on a sales call on Thursday - not sure why I am going, haven't been asked to go on a sales call for more than six years - but all of a sudden I have to drive an hour and a half to get to the main office and then another hour to get to the appointment. Yippie. But I digress - I needed something cute (read as: not frumpy) to wear so I found this adorable black sweater (NWT) with an empire waist and princess sleeves for $9 and an a-line skirt in black and white also NWT for $5. Pair these with my Prima Crocs (the ones that look like actual shoes, LOL) and I will be good to go. And Clinton and Stacy say no good can come of shopping at the Goodwill! Poppycock!

Funny, Mom - that is exactlky what Ron said! LOL -

I reminded him that he should be thrilled to have a wife who likes to shop thrift stores.
