  • I love the goodwill store near me! All of the baby clothes are $.99! And I can find great bored games for $3! I went to my parents goodwill (in a town where the people probably have a lower average income) and the stuff was way too expensive for my tastes used baby clothes started at about $3 and I know what brands are worth what, and walmart onsies that were probably $3 originally were being sold for the same price lol. I like thrift stores, but I like to know the price of new things because I find you don't always get the best deals.

  • I shop at Goodwill at times when I am broke & need something or when I just want something like for a Halloween costume that I don't want to pay a lot of money for there's nothing wrong with that

  • I don't shop at our local good will, but I do like the one that is in a ritzy community about 50 minutes from here. Their stuff is AWESOME. I have gotten new high end baby clothes with the tags still on. :D My good friend usually goes with me and buys jeans there that are just stupidly expensive if purchased new.

  • Not often, but I do look for household items if I need something and my son loves shopping for toys there.

  • Our Goodwill seems to be pretty stocked, I shop there all the time. Especially since my daughter got into crafty stuff like sewing. I couldn't imagine buying something like fabrics and lace etc full price brand new, of course, I never thought I would be buying that stuff period, lol. But also, cookware, and coffee mugs. And, as one of the few dinosaurs left with a VHS player, I have an extensive collection of Videos I got from goodwill. LOVE secondhand shopping.

  • Yes, but it really depends where Goodwill is located.

  • I have shopped once in a thrift store. I think you can get some good buys in there! I don't have a need too right now but I do think they are a good idea for people with little income!

  • I don't shop at thrift stores. It's not worth it to me to waste my time diving through piles of smelly used stuff to score some of the used stuff for myself.
