Here’s my $6 Goodwill Score…

Who doesn’t love a great deal? Most people make a living or part-time job on finding deals. I have some tips on how to get a great deal and how to save money.

First, check your local Goodwill, Plato’s Closet, and consignment shops. Look around and see if there is anything you are looking for. If you cannot find what you are looking for just look around and check your sizes first. It doesn’t hurt to check around because bargains always come up when you least expect it.

If at Goodwill, I check everywhere because you never know what you can find. I have found a $100 dress for $6, found a wooden basket and used as a pencil holder for my desk, I have made old jeans into shorts, and I have found very cheap things and made into neat new things. If you check any Pinterest account there is tons of DIY with Goodwill finds.

If it is a clothing store like Plato`s or a consignment store, then you have to take the time and look through things to find deals. I usually look through my sizes and if it isn’t under $10 I don’t consider it. Sometimes I will walk around the store with things in my hand and end up buying completely different items because I found better deals.

Great deals come and go and its good to always be on top of sales of stores. I like to always buy something on sale but if it is something I have to have then I buy it of course. Bargain shopping is become a popular trend that stores will do anything to make you stop by. Make sure you are watching the sale going on. Check the original price and compare to the sale price. A considered “good” sale is 40% or more off of the original price. Always do your research when dealing with bargain shopping; especially when you have a device right in front of you that can tell you a lot about the value of the product.

Hope these tips help you score awesome bargains. Always remember to do your research, look at items that you originally didn’t come in for, and keep an open mind while bargain shopping.
