I love giving more these days than shopping there. In the late 80's, that was the only place I shopped.... they had incredible deals on Miami Vice
i dont give cash but over the years we have donated a lot of clothes. huge bags full.
i always recommend people check out their local goodwill when it comes to clothes shopping. they have good stuff.
salvation army # is kind of ragged. stains and holes and such but goodwill is always in great shape. at least as fat as their clothes go.
on numerous occasions we have bought stuff that still had the tags on.
every thing in the store has a color code and each day a certain color will be half off.
we go a couple times a week.
it works out real well for our daughter. she is 3 1/2 so she goes through stuff fast either by growth or spilling or dropping food. good ole toddler
stains. of course she plays outside a lot so clothes get grass stained up and i just dont see the point of paying the prices for stuff off the retail
shelves when it does not last too long.
im not big on spending money on clothes though. i know you get what you pay for quality wise but i am the type of guy that does not like to spend more
than 10 bucks on a new pair of jeans. my wife is the same way.
neither one of us care about name brands but it is nice when you can score the name brand at goodwill cause you know youre getting the quality stuff
for a good price.
recently we got my daughter 7 pair of tommy girl jeans, all new with the tags on for like 8 bucks with tax.
i love looking at the 'junk' as we call it. all the knick knack, home decor, kitchen stuff.
i always walk out with strange things.
i got a pretty good collection of theater masks from goodwill.
i like the jars with peppers or fruits or garlic that are sealed up as decoration. i have a nice collection of those i get for really cheap. those
things are expensive in the stores.
