Yes, you heard right my trusty Living the Goodwill Life followers… this challenge-blog is living ON!
Well, not exactly as you might think. No, my year of “living” from just Goodwill is over but my challenge continues in my 2012 blog Parents Tested Mommy Approved (PTMA)!
-AND- there are discussions underway to keep a thrifting blog going as well!
So, follow my current adventures over on PTMA and see how I take on Parents magazine’s contributors, advertisers, suggestions and ideas with my own family and I will keep you posted about my thrift-adventures as they develop.
One Year, One Woman, ONE Adventure every 12 months!
This holiday week started off with the KIROradio interview with Linda Thomas which you can read about more here.
Linda was a delight to speak with and I gave her a couple of hints of posts coming up next week that you can hear in the interview… namely the limited edition book from Harold Keeler that I picked up this summer (and found on the floor!) at the Seattle Dearborn Goodwill location for .97 cents but could be worth thousands! Yep, this purchase could by far be one of the best I’ve ever scored in all my years of thrift shopping… and I want to share it all with you.
So watch next week for images of the book and for news of the gallery that might be showing it next summer!
Also, Linda reported out on the many, many receipts that I’ve been keeping for everything I’ve purchased this year. So once I’m truly done spending money at the Goodwill (which literally could be up until December 31st!) I will tally them all up and show you what the final retail & Goodwill prices were and how much I SAVED this year!
Third, is my 2012 challenge where I will be taking Parents magazine, their articles, suggestions and yes… even their advertisers products, to task for a typical American family and blogging back to you how they worked (or didn’t) for us. I will be sharing the link and my goals for the 2012 challenge “Parents Tested, Mommy Approved” in the post next week as well.
But for now… look for my last post on Goodwill holiday gift ideas this week for those last minute holiday shoppers and the other media interviews coming up in Seattle Met magazine and Seattle Times!
