I started a new job this week! Yeah! I’m so happy to be away from my former job. It’s so refreshing to come to work and everyone is nice and it’s a positive atmosphere. As I was perusing my closet for my first day outfit, I had an epiphany. OMG! Do I have a ton of clothes! I can wear jeans to work, which is great, but I have way too much stuff.
Five years ago I lost almost 60 pounds, so I went out and bought a whole new wardrobe. That was also the same time I discovered shopping at Goodwill. I can’t believe how many flipping clothes I have. The great thing about Goodwill is that I have a banging wardrobe for very little money. I’m not one to wear the latest fashions, but I really don’t need to buy another piece of clothing for, like ever.
I have every color of clothing imaginable, ok, not chartreuse, but every other color. I think I counted twenty pairs of jeans! I use to go to Goodwill every weekend, now I hardly ever go, except to donate stuff. I like to look nice, and my style is pretty casual. Now I’m all about accessories and nail polish.
Looking for a different job is so exhausting. I actually found my new job on Craigslist. It is truly amazing how much a miserable job takes out of you. I look forward to picking out my next day outfit for work instead of spending hours looking for a new job.
Yep…shopping at Goodwill is the way to go! Only one negative though; if I find a shirt I LOVE, I can’t get one of the same in 6 different colors! Oh no!
Well then you just have to buy 6 other fabulous shirts instead!
Congrats and I hope you will heaps of fun with your job 🙂
Thanks so much. I am lucky to have finally found a great job. It took a long time to get here.
And you are there now 🙂
