Thrifty Thursday - July 24th -

I know the Goodwill can be overpriced, but they tend to always have *something* I need. This week was no exception. I saw this there one time for only $15 (retail $60). I really loved it and didn't get it ... it was new in the box and had all the parts. Don't ask me what I was thinking, I couldn't tell you if I tried. I drove away without it and realized that it was dumb and drove back for it even! But, of course it was gone when I got back ... someone else recognized the AWESOME deal it was. I have been going back again and again to find it ... knowing one day it would be there again. And this time it was ... for $30!!! There was a second one, but it was missing half of the buckets, so I didn't get it. There was some slight damage on the back of the shelves, but it's minimal (and hidden in the back) ... I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! :) Now ... to just find a second one ... lol. ;).

The other item I picked up was a game called Whack-A-Mole. Hunter LOVES it and plays it over & over & over & over again since we picked it up (great entertainment ... for only $2!!!).


  1. I have those organizers from K-Mart in both of my little boys rooms and I love them!

    Were there anymore Wac a Moles? It is our favorite game at Chuck E Cheese!

  2. There weren't anymore, the copyright date on the box says 1999 and it is working great. I'll keep my eye out for you though. :)

  3. Great find! Which Goodwill do you shop at?

    I love Goodwill and all those thrift stores! Today I bought a Build A Bear White Tiger with overalls (and tags still attached) for .99!! Can you believe it!!


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
