Plus, I'm editing my closet. I know, buying more items from Goodwill seems like maybe I don't understand the concept.
I really do understand the benefit of having fewer clothes so I can more easily get dressed in the morning. I'm buying the basics I need and love, to fit me now, and am moving lots of items out of my closets by swapping via my Swap Stuff (see tab above), passing on items to friends (in person or via mail), giving things to my daughters if they like them, or if all else fails, simply seeing what the local consignment shop will take, and then donating the rest to the Goodwill.
When I was there on Saturday, I actually dropped off an entire trunk load of items for donation before even entering the store. Oddly, that simple act of passing on items or clothing we aren't using made me feel lighter of spirit.
Now for some of the items I scored, all under $4, that you'll see on the blog (not washed or Dryel'd yet, so please 'scuse the wrinkles):
Loft skirt (finally got some polka dots, y'all!)
