When I was a kid my dad would take me to Goodwill and allow me to get as many books as I wanted. I loved to read and therefore loved Goodwill. When I became an adult I continued to go to Goodwill. You just never know what you will find. When I became a mom to many kids it became a lifesaver. Sometimes we go and look at the dollar rack of clothing just for the fabric, so much cheaper and sometimes you can find a unique piece of fabric.
The other day I took Benjamin with me and he fell in love with this car. It has a metal body and was really cute. It also had a price tag of $4.75. He had to ride it out the store and through the parking lot to the car.
I tried to pick him up but the car came with him. I had to pry his little legs off the body and then his hands off the steering wheel. I sat it next to him so he could hold it.
He loves his little car and I love that for under $5 I was able to get him a quality toy. I looked it up online, that car can be purchased for $100 on Amazon.
I am always looking for a bargain; garage sales, clearance sales, Craigslist, facebook sale sites. I shop at all of them. Paying full price for clothing and toys is not necessary.
So, I am curious, who else bargain shops and do you have a favorite find?
