Goodwill Finds ~ Business Casual Attire Tops

When I went back to work a few months ago, I realized I didn’t have much in the business casual attire department in my closet.

I knew that my job was only going to be temporary and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on clothes that I’d wear for a little while.

Knowing this, I went to Goodwill and shopped … and shopped … and shopped.

A lot of times, I did hit their 50% off sales on various Saturdays, so my total shopping bill would come out to around $40 on average.

Here are some clothes I bought….

So, as you can see, you can dress for the office on a TIGHT budget.

Even if you don’t have a TIGHT budget, you can still get some phenomenal pieces for next to nothing!

My husband gets ‘mad’ at me that I shop there and that I tell EVERYBODY about it, but why wouldn’t I?  The deals I get?  The money I save … him!!!  I do think he’s coming around though when he sees the Columbia, the REI, the Marmot, etc for literally an 1/8 of the price he’d pay!

Watch for more Goodwill finds coming up….

  2. I gotta get out to your GW! Still drooling over that Anthro jacket from CE! ;) Love your new look! I cannot subscribe to your site for some reason. I’ve tried since I met you but I get a bunch of funny writing. I was able to do it in a diff browser but it did not save/trnsfer to Chrome which is what I use. :( Any suggestions?

  3. My husband is the same way about bargain shopping! When I buy him stuff on sale I have to rip the sales tags off to get proper appreciation!

    I just bought an Ann Taylor cashmere cardigan sweater with the $128.00 price tag still on it for $1.49.
    I know alot of people turn there noses up at my bargain shopping but I don’t care. Just leaves more for me to buy and I know the money I spend goes for a good cause.

  6. I love Goodwill! I once scored Vera Wang! Before the Kohl’s line. I’ve moved around a bit and have noticed that the quality of what’s donated differs by locations. College towns seem to have the best Goodwill selection.
