I *heart* Goodwill!

My clothes are falling off of me, so I made the decision to get some that actually fit me right now.

Since I'm not a dummy, nor am I wealthy, I headed over to the Goodwill Superstore on Sahara this evening...jackpot!

The visit netted me six tops and four pairs of jeans for a whopping $23.66. Oh, that includes a book I snagged for a quarter!

The clothes are currently in the washer (remember, not a dummy), and the amusing thing is I "shopped ahead". The jeans are in four descending sizes, so I can move on without having to shell out again for a while.

Yup, I'm in size 16 jeans now, they fit me very well! I can pull up the fourteens, but can't button them quite yet. It'll come. I'm not worried.

One thing I've got to say, though. If you buy underwear at the Goodwill store, you must be desperate.

I dunno..... the airports sell the used and unclaimed luggage they acumulate, including the undies. Buying from them... now that's desperate!

Oh, and good for you!

Okay, I'll admit it - I have bought underwear at Goodwill before: vintage slips and new (tag still on) sports bras. If I ever find a proper vintage bra in my size, I'll buy that. :)

M*G, brand new is one thing, but I saw underoos that were for sure NOT new...;) Good luck on your hunt!

Holly, thank you, I still have a ways to go. But I WILL get there!

I scored some way-cool vintage ties from the 50s/60s in Goodwill stores (and similar) back in the day when I had to wear such things every day. But underwear? I don't recall ever seeing any... "things" must have changed, and not for the better.

More congrats to ya, Christina!! This is an exciting tale to watch unfold!

LMT. You also might want to read my blog. It's interesting today. I'm desperate, I know, but not desperate enough to buy underwear from Goodwill! You lost A LOT of poundage! Good f***ing job!

Putz, your wish is my command, check back tomorrow (Wednesday) evening!

Buck, thank you very much! I saw an entire section of ties at the store. Plus the underwear.

Tally, you know I check your blog almost every day, Sweetie, you don't have to remind me! Happy birthday, btw!
