I am on a mission to get my house all pretty and stuff. I'm currently scouting out new furniture for the living room which will be purchased as soon as it goes on sale. Free delivery wouldn't hurt either, but that's most likely a dream. But since I'm on this mission AND I'm a thrifty gal, I decided to put a little plan in place:
Every week I'm going to find something (or several somethings) from Goodwill to make pretty. The deal is that for every item I bring home, I have to have donated the same amount of items back to them. This is the only way to keep the husband happy with the level of crap in the house. I'll show you my Goodwill finds and you'll see what I do with them in a future post.
"This sounds like an excuse for her to shop at Goodwill," you say to yourself.
Number one, you shouldn't talk to yourself. And number two, you're totally right.
This week, I donated a small box of kid's toys to Goodwill... in exchange, I spent $0.96 on this here clock.
I have grand plans for this clock and you'll see what they are just as soon as I actually do it... that's the catch, you have to actually do the work.
I hope you'll enjoy this weekly mission of Goodwill, at least until the holidays start and I can show you all the holiday projects I've done... and they're awesome.
