Well, the turkey, Black Friday, Small-business Saturday and Cyber Monday are all done and on the record books for 2011… and in one month so will the Living the Goodwill Life challenge! I’ve been gearing up for my last month of the challenge with some end-of-year interviews, some holiday shopping trips and of course my wrap-up blog posts to complete this year of buying everything I need from a Goodwill. I’ve also started putting together next years challenge and will keep dropping hints up until New Years when the new challenge/site officially launches! (it’s parent/child related)
But this weekend I just relaxed and enjoyed time with my family.
My father’s birthday was last week so we picked up this great WWII DVD box set (in mint condition!) for papa at the Seattle Dearborn Goodwill last week for only $9.99!
While in Centralia, I visited the Visiting Nurses Thrift Store Black Friday sale (with everything 50% off!) and boy was that store cleared out!
I also ventured into both the Centralia and Lacey Goodwill stores looking for a new pair of jeans but came up with a couple of holiday items instead…
My mother took me to a new thrift store called Reborn that was probably one of the cleanest, most well-organized thrift stores I’ve seen in a long time and what great designer items they had!
Just look at this prom/formal dress area at Reborn with many high-end pieces!
My mother knew we were having a holiday dinner party and ended up picking up a carving set for only .49 cents! and a serving platter for $5.99
So with less than a month to go stay posted for all the end-of-challenge updates!
