OMG - I ROCK! I went to Goodwill today b/c my daughters needed some warm clothes - the oldest has outgrown her jeans and shirts. I CLEANED UP! I got her a like new Juicy Couture hoodie for $2.75, 4 like new Gap hoodies for $2.75 each (plus a matching one for my youngest at the same price), an almost new Vertigo knit jacket for $2.75, a like new Old Navy hoodie for$1.38, 3 pair of Gap jeans for $2.75 each, 1 new w/ tag Gymboree shirt $1.38, some Levis for $2.75 and some more stuff. I looked the stuff up when I got home - saved over $200!!

I can't believe what amazing condition this stuff is in either.

Two months ago my husband found a black Wilson's leather computer bag w/ a pullout handle and wheels. Found out it was worth $150! It had never been used. He paid $6.

OK, you're in NOVA - which Goodwill do you go to? The only ones I know of have more expensive clothes than that. No kids here to buy for, but I do love finding bargains.

I go to the ones in Stafford. There's a HUGE one over by Costner's Corner (exit 126, go right, it's on the right side by CVS).

The GW here in Round Rock, TX is somewhat pricey - we don't find bargains like that. The Salvation Army out here has 1/2 price days where we can get those prices.

I go on line too, for the auctions. I've purchased all over the country.
Shipping is crazy sometimes though. I've driven as far as Alexandria,
Virginia location to do pick ups, it was around xmas, so we stopped in
DC to see the outdoor trees decorated for each state.

I love going to Goodwill!! I think the trick to finding the best deals and merchandise is to visit there on a regular basis(at least once a month). It is amazing the stuff they offer and the prices you can get it for.

Glory, very true. We got my youngest daughter's bike from there - a pink Disney princess one in excellent condition for $12.
