  • I have bought both bras and socks from our Goodwill, but both were new in packaging and then washed. The bra was actually a brand new nursing bra and the socks were brand new baby booties. I buy my daughter Sketchers regularly at our Goodwill and then just wash them when we get home. I wouldn't buy used undergarments, or anything that I couldn't wash.

  • Oh and carseats! I would never buy a used carseat unless it was from someone that I trust 100%

  • Undies of any kind...and sandals! We have a weird discount store that sells slightly damaged or opened unused stuff and people flock there for makeup which freaks me out!! I couldnt do it!!
