This afternoon, in the middle of a very long day and an even longer to-do list, I thought to myself….
Jessica: Self, I feel like shopping.
Self: But Jessica, you don’t have any money! You can’t go shopping.
Jessica: Yes, Self, I know that, but I have the urge to buy!
Self: I know, I know.
Jessica: Where can I scratch the itch and not spend a fortune?
Self: This is beginning to sound like a cheesy commercial.
It’s at this point in the recap that I realize I’m better at reading other’s scripts rather than writing my own. A playwright I never will be.
So yes, in the middle of the afternoon, I decided to go shopping at Goodwill. There’s a very nice one – clean, smells good, has a nice selection, brightly lit, good parking – near our favorite movie theatre. Husband and I peeked in there one day and really wanted to go back and explore.
I decided today was the day.
And I was NOT disappointed!
Here’s what I came home with -
This is a JONES NEW YORK skirt, size 8P. Oh. My. Goodness. $3!!!
This is a cute shirt in a color that I love but don’t have a lot of. This was $3 as well!!!
And the pièce de résistance … an amazing Chenille-like jacket. I hope I can get it to the dry cleaners tomorrow morning and get it back before a big meeting/event I have on Thursday. I’d really like to have it to make a great impression! It will look perfect with black pants and my boots.
But yeah, definitely have to get it cleaned. It smells like an old woman! But for $4, it was TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!
It just goes to you that Goodwill is absolutely worth your time.
