So I have another update on the latest savings figures, but I also wanted to start providing a snap-shot into the TOTAL SAVINGS thus far since we are now 1/4 of the way into this year-long challenge.
Items purchased from a Goodwill since January 1st 2011: 308
Total cost of all items purchased @ Goodwill since January 1st 2011: $599.32
TOTAL retail cost paid for these same items: $3535.39
TOTAL SAVINGS of these items as of April 11th, 2011: $2936.07!
I plan on adding this TOTAL SAVINGS component in the summer and fall as well since this challenge is about many things, but one of them is how shopping @ the Goodwill can help you save your hard earned dollars over retail.
