Nothing..our goodwill has never had anything worth buying. I have checked it so many times and all the clothes and shoes they get are so outdated or not in very good shape and over priced. I have checked there a lot for furniture but something is usually wrong with it and over priced as well. I wish we had a good one around here, I have seen so many people brag about their's.

 they were just mad cause you got more brains than money. they on the other hand have more money than brains. I love thrift stores. I find more I like at thrift stores than new stores. :)

I buy all kinds of stuff from thrift stores and goodwill, I usually slap $1 coat of spray paint on it and resell it. Love thrifty shopping! My favorite finds are always the vintage bridal gowns. I own a bridal store so I take them home, clean them up, repair or renew parts and resell them, my brides love my vintage gowns!

If you lived around here you would understand. There aren't any new with tags things being sold. Nothing looks new. Everything in the thrift stores here looks like it was pulled out of a flooded basement 20yrs ago and they're just now trying to do something with it. Last time I was in Goodwill there was used underwear hanging up for sale....skid marks included.

I promise you this my husband is a disabled veteran and between all of his entitlements and my pay we make well over 9000 a month I still shop at goodwill use coupons and shop at thrift stores for my kids.. Not because I have to but because I can and choose to. you never know what will happen and with my husband not being able to walk after 40 I am thinking about our future because he might need 24 hour care and I might have to quit my job so we live well below our means so if and when it happens we still can adapt to the lifestyle and still have a life.. This is what is wrong with America living in a lifestyle they can't afford....

Hello moron.. Don't have to be poor..WTF?? But yeah find another group.. Sounds perfect.




Quoting Anonymous:

 Is there anyone here who does not proudly shop at Goodwill and thrift shops?  I'm thinking this is not the right group for me.  All people here ever talk about is how poor they are.  I don't get it.

I love goodwill and thrift store shopping! I've bought tons of cool stuff. My favorite find was a pair of express jeans that fit me perfectly for $5.

Lol I guess you're right!!!

Quoting lendales_mommi:

It goes both ways huh LOL they think we are" poor and gross" for shopping there and we think they are "stuck up and dumb" for not wanting to save a few bucks.



Quoting LAXmom21:

It makes them think they are better than everyone else! LOL!



Quoting lendales_mommi:

Yep so I am still confused on why either of you commented after you read the POST TITLE!!!!!!!!! errrrrrr

I talked to a girl once who walked out of a goodwill with $200 worth of brand new cloth diapers (bumgenius) for $30. She was pretty much set for cloth diapering her daughter.
