One of the greatest thing about Goodwill is that you can shop seasonal merchandise all year round. That way you can beat the back-to-school crowds by shopping early.
I asked my sister to send me a list of things my niece and nephew need for the upcoming school year so I can keep an eye out while I’m out and about thrifting. I scored incredible deals on a few outfits for the kids at the Goodwill’s Akron Waterloo location. I often wonder why anyone would buy children’s clothing anywhere else because the options are truly endless – racks upon racks of shockingly inexpensive clothing in like-new condition.
I admit, I spent an unfair amount of time shopping for my niece than my nephew because little girl’s clothes are just too cute.
Here’s a round up of what I bought my niece:
Children’s Place pink pants $2
Baby Gap polka dot top $2
New with tags Old Navy polka dot jeggings $2
Floral pants $2
Although my sister instructed me not to buy the Star Wars shirt for my nephew because he already has a lot of summer clothing, I did anyway because that’s what aunts do. I mean really, it was too cool not to buy it.
Here’s a roundup of what I bought my nephew:
Star Wars t-shirt: $2.48
Old Navy cargo shorts $2.48
Zip-up hoodie $2.48
I spent $17 on both kids, plus I used a 20% coupon so my total was an incredible $13.50! Those Children’s Place pants are probably at least $15 at the store.
I’d say we’re off to a thrifty good start for back-to-school!
