I LOVE Goodwill 50% off sales and try my best to never miss them. I recently frequented the day after Christmas sale and wasn’t very hopeful that I’d find anything because I got there late. What I always recommend is that people arrive when they open at 8 am to beat the rush and get the best stuff. I unfortunately had to work and didn’t make it in till 3 pm. You know how they say, ‘when you aren’t looking you’ll find the best stuff’ – oh wait, I think that’s for men too right? ;) Well, the day after X-Mas sale was one of those days for me because I found some amazing stuff! No men found when I wasn’t looking, but some great dresses instead. Hey, sometimes that’s better I think.
Now, I’m fully aware that I have far too many dresses and don’t need anymore. And I tried my darnedest to find other things, (I swear!) but in the end I succumbed to my dresses. Look, they make me happy ok. I love that I’m trying to justify my dress obsession to all of you guys – you get it right??
I ended up leaving with 4 dresses and an Ann Taylor cardigan. (not pictured, I forgot to photograph it because I was so engrossed with the dresses – ok maybe I do have a wee bit of problem) All together I got 5 items for less than $25. Not too bad! The next 50% off sale is on Martin Luther King’s Birthday:
