50% off at Goodwill.


I just changed my background and made myself a new banner! I'd be interested in hearing what you think, especially about the new banner!

So this past Saturday was 50% off day at goodwill. I was having a garage sale with my mom so I couldn't go, but that didn't stop me from getting good deals anyways! My best friend (and shopping buddy) and I went the night before about a half an hour until closing time and checked out things we might want. We then went into the car and made a list of everything. (Yes we are that crazy)

My friend got there right when they opened and she actually got everything on our list! I was so excited when she showed up at our garage sale with everything I wanted in hand! Here are the things that I got!

This was a three piece canister set. I think it was meant for the bath room but I am going to use it in my craft room to hold some sort of crafty things.
was 1.99
paid: .99
These owl glass were brand new, but yet look vintage. They may very well be vintage but I doubt it. They were .99 a piece. I got 5 of them at .50 each.
Price: 5.00
Paid: 2.50
I tell everyone I have no interest in strap perfects, but then when we saw them sitting there on the goodwill shelf I couldn't help but put it on the list! It came with two of each color and we decided to split them up and share the price.
price: 8.99
paid: 4.50
Split in half( I paid): 2.25
I love owls, so I was instantly drawn to this magazine rack!
Sadly, it is kind of ugly. I cant wait to sand it and then paint it white. I will show you it once I am done, it will probably be a while though. I want to use it to hold my scrapbook paper...I think.
paid: 3.50
Toy story curtain!
We are buying things slowly for a disney room someday and This will make great pillows or something.
Paid: .99
Full sized sheet.
So cute!
price: 2.99
paid: 1.50
I use sheets as fabric for my crafts, and this sheet was just perfect!

Hope you enjoyed my deals!

Happy shopping!
