Goodwill loot

Well, today was the perfect day! I took the day off. Slept in until 8am. Then got up and ran 3 miles. I am trying to motivate myself, so I am really trying to run at least 3 miles every day for 30 days. (You can follow my progress on FB) When I got back I pulled my lazy girls out of bed and off we went to our favorite shopping destination: Goodwill and Salvation Army. Inherited the bargain gene from my mother who can size up a yard sale in 10 seconds. My girls are as in love with a bargain as I am. They were raised with the phrase "You can get it if its on sale" burned into their psyche. Maybe that's why they love thrift store shopping. I usually get them whatever they find.
After scouring through the racks we hit the motherload! Now it is absolutely essential to have a game plan at Goodwill or you will get completely overwhelmed with the mass of junk. We were on a mission for jeans and khakis. you can always get the wardrobe staples in mint condition at GW.
For $20 bucks we scored:
J Jill bag (with tags)
Sevens jeans
Banana Republic blouse
Eddie Bauer khaki crop pants
Couple pairs of shorts for the girls
2 records for Leslie
Dress for Ginny

Very productive day. I am laughing as I write this post.... I am so much like my mother. She is never content just to tell you what she found at a yard sale/thrift shop. She must also tell you the name brand and how much she paid for it. I guess I am my mom made over!

Now all our treasures are being washed (disinfected on hot) and we are getting ready to dig into a pile of nachos! Hope your Thursday was as fun as mine!

I love to go to the thrift store too - You are right it is in our genes. How in the world did you find all those name brands - you must have some high class thrift stores down there :) I'm so jealous!
