You know how some people could walk into a store and pick out the MOST expensive item without ever looking at price tags? That's me. Marshall confessed last week that he realized it shortly after we were engaged. I think it scared him a little bit, but I take comfort in the fact that he married me anyway.
Even though my taste may be on the more expensive side, I hate spending money on stuff. Especially when you can buy it for so much less at garage sales or Goodwill.
Are you too stuck up for Goodwill? Sometimes I think I might be too stuck up not to go to Goodwill... I love going through the store and seeing how many name brand or good quality items I can find. Here's a running total of our favorite finds:
|2 ties, Arrow sweater (Large/Tall- sooo hard to find!), Chaps sweater (tags still on!) = 4|
|Ann Taylor Loft dress, striped Gap skirt (tags still on!), khaki Gap skirt (after a little sewing, it will be modest enough to wear in public) = 16|
|This is just a small representation of all the books we've found at Goodwill. = 54+|
|Gap wool coat, brown puffy coat (I ruined the hood in the dryer... sad), and then I found another brown puffy coat from Ralph Lauren (with tags still on!) = 57+|
|Lots of decorative plates, chalkboard frame, apothecary jars, rocking chair = 68+|
When it comes to Goodwill, I can't afford not to shop there!
