Whenever I shop at Goodwill it feels like a good ol’ thrifting treasure hunt because I never know whats in store for me!

Now that I’ve been shopping at Goodwill for years, I’ve developed some guidelines that have greatly helped me plan my shopping trips, save money and have the cutest wardrobe ever (if I do say so myself) I’m just sayin…
