Goodwill Year End Haul

Happy Sunday!   I cleaned my closet this weekend and filled five garbage bags with clothes to donate. While I was cleaning, I realized that I have way too many clothes.  But I’m a woman and we can never have too many clothes, kind of the same way  we feel about shoes.

Since it’s officially winter here in Wisconsin, I was jonesing for some different sweaters, so off I went to Goodwill.  It’s snowing today, so the store was hardly busy at all, yeah!  No screaming kids! I scored lots of good stuff. Of course I need nothing, but that never stops me.

For a whopping $22, I got two pairs of pants, four sweaters, two tee shirts, a tank top and a hippy blouse.

All of the items were name brand and in excellent condition.  I got 8 items for 50% off the tag price, then 25% off of my entire purchase.

Here are my sweaters.  I especially like the paisley print cardigan.

The tee shirts and tank top will look great under sweaters I already own.

And this cute hippy blouse. Super comfy.


I also got a pair of Dockers trouser jeans and some black Levi corduroys. Now I’m all set, at least until I lose the 30 pounds hanging off my arse.

Thanks for stopping by.


My Big Fat German Closet

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.Happy-Dance 5-7-15
