While we were down in Portland for our Birthday trip a couple of weeks ago we had two TV stations interview us for the Living the Goodwill Life challenge (KOIN and KPTV).
We hope you enjoy both TV segments below!
My week started with plans to attend the grand-opening of the new Shelton Goodwill and then I was presented with the added possibility of doing some interviews about the challenge on Tuesday. The week ended with the grand-opening and a KOMO 4 News interview on the same day! and then came the KOMO Herb Weisbaum & Jane Shannon and KIRO Ross & Burbank radio show interviews to follow!
I would like to thank everybody that made these media appearances possible, and for those listening & commenting for the last week! I’m so lucky to have the support that I have to continue with my challenge for the next 10 months.
Dieting and Shopping, do they really go together at all? (especially if your shopping in a grocery store) But speaking of food and thrifting, lately I have been called the “Subway Jared” of the Goodwill/Thrift world! Not sure if that’s a compliment considering that he started out at like 400 pounds (are you trying to say I DON’T really fit into that new skirt all that well?!!) but what I couldn’t get out of my brain after that conversation was their slogan EAT FRESH!
No, I don’t mean I’m going to eat food only found @ the Goodwill (because they don’t sell fresh produce… YET) but what I’m talking about here is the concept of reducing your environmental -AND- monetary impact with what else? A FRESH NEW GOODWILL STORE! And that’s exactly what I did today, shopped a NEW store in Shelton!
Ah… I love that new car/store/shoe smell! PLUS, I got to partake in the ribbon-cutting festivities!
So if you’re in the mood for something “out of the bun”… try SHOPPING FRESH @ the Shelton Goodwill!
Look @ this beautiful Radio Flyer Trike that I picked up for the baby!!
And if you thought that was great… when we came back today we were interviewed by Denise Whitaker for KOMO 4 News! Check out the 4 o’clock and 6 o’clock news tonight! (and KOMO radio with Herb Wisebaum @ 4:30)
