Goodwill Hunting: 50% off makes my day!

Yesterday, I've decided to drag my butt out of the house and do some thrifting.  Goodwill was having a 50% off one day sale, and since I haven't been in a couple of months, I decided to take advantage of the sale.  Here's what I bought:

top $1.50 (reg. $2.99)


skirt $2 (reg. $3.99).  I'm going to pull this out when spring rolls around.  I love the floral print!

houndstooth blazer $2 (reg. $3.99).  I'm so happy that I found this little gem! I've been searching for a houndstooth print blazer for a while.

Limited silk blazer $2.50 (reg. $4.99)

blazer $2.50 (reg. $4.99).  The color of this blazer is so pretty! The picture doesn't do it justice.  I wish I had a better camera to show you just how beautiful the color is.  This will be on heavy rotation this spring.

beaded clutch $3.50 (reg. $6.99) and multicolor clutch $2 (reg. $3.99)

belts $1 each (reg. $1.99 each)

Total spent with tax= $20.14! I think I did pretty well! Goodwill need to have these one day sales more often!

I did some more thrifting today, and headed over to The Family Thrift Center.  I didn't get much out of there,  but I did find a few neat things.

top $3.99.  At first, I was hesitant about buying this top because it seems a bit too "festive" (check out the beaded snowflake), but it's one of those things that I didn't want to leave on the rack because I think it's really pretty, so I brought it home with me.

Limited tartan romper $2.99.  I fell in love with this piece as soon as I saw it on the rack, and since there are no dressing rooms in this thrift store, I took a chance on it and brought it home with me.  Unfortunately, this romper doesn't fit.  If it were a size bigger, then it would've been perfect.  Le sigh....

H&M trousers $1.50 (reg. $2.99).  Nothing special, just a pair of pants for work.  Since the sale tag colors of the day were blue, yellow, and white, I scored these pants for only $1.50.

Total spent with tax= $8.98.  


$50 shopping budget challenge update:  Between the two thrift stores, I've spent $29.12.  That leaves me with a little over $20.  Let's see how the rest of the month goes...
