I've professed my love of Goodwill on many different blogposts. I've talked about it so much, Goodwill has it's own category on the blog. In all my Goodwill posts, I have never talked about Goodwill clothes.
When I go to Goodwill, I head straight to the home goods section. Once I finish with the home goods, I go to the clothes section. On most of my visits, I don't look at the clothes item by item. I just scan over the racks. Here lately, I have been hitting some home runs with my Goodwill clothes finds.
One of my many quirks is that every time I get dressed, I quickly figure out my Goodwill percentage.
"What's a Goodwill percentage?" you ask!
My Goodwill percentage is the percentage of clothes I have on that are from Goodwill. The higher the Goodwill percentage the better!
Here are a few examples.
This outfit has a 75% Goodwill percentage. Out of 4 pieces the white shirt, cardigan, and skirt all come from Goodwill. The boots were a Christmas gift.
Colli Bear photo bombed this picture. His Goodwill percentage is 0%, but he does have a 100% Mom-mom percentage. He's sporting the pajamas she got him for Christmas.
This outfit has a 66% Goodwill percentage. Out of three pieces, the dress and sweater are Goodwill.
Why yes! I do love my boots. Why do you ask?
As proud as I am of my high Goodwill percentage outfits, Shad totally beat me on the outfit he wore when we went ballroom dancing. It has a Goodwill percentage of 100%!
If you live anywhere near a Goodwill of Delaware, make sure you check out their $2 Tuesdays every Tuesday in the month of February. This is Shad and my favorite sale of the year.
Basically, any winter item is $2 for adults and $1 for kids (that includes jeans). We got B an awesome jacket last night for $1! With $2 Tuesdays this month, I might try to get a 100% Goodwill percentage. Wait. That would mean I couldn't wear my boots. Forget that. I'll just try for an 85%.
