3 Girls & a Goodwill

I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in a family of thrifters & bargain shoppers but I know I’m not the only one and last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting another group of generational thrifters, Megan, her daughter Maddy and her mother Pam.  We met @ the Lacey Goodwill for a bit of shopping and some questions about their Goodwill experiences.

Like so many stay-at-home-moms/families, thrifting is a great way to get quality (or even new!) items for themselves and their loved ones for a much cheaper price than retail.  It only makes sense that you would pay $2.99 for that brand-new kids outfit from Target than even Target’s (discounted) price of $4.99!  That just makes economic sense, especially when those children your buying for grow out of (or ruin) those items within months, even weeks!  That’s $2 well saved!  A concept Megan knows well and one that her daughter Maddy is learning!

Besides the frugal families that shop @ the Goodwill I also met Pam, Megan’s mom, who is a reseller for her great little (co-owned) boutique called PB & J’s in Elma, WA.

So without further delay… let me introduce Megan, Maddy & Pam to you and see for yourself how and why the Goodwill is a part of our communities and our society…generations deep!
