Thrifty Black Friday Deal

Goodwill

While everyone is distracted by the sales in Walmart or mall shops, take advantage of the amazing deals at Goodwill. The exclusive sale will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 9 p.m. on Nov. 28 and 29. Better get there early because the first 50 people in line will receive a $10 gift certificate. Goodwill is making the most popular weekend to shop fun for the customers by hosting a treasure hunt. There will be 200 free items hidden throughout every store. All clothing will be $3 from 8-10 a.m. and for every $50 spent customers will earn a $10 gift certificate to use in the month of December. This is a sale you do not want to miss. Check for your local Goodwill.

Thrifting Tips

Shopping at a thrift store can be pretty intimidating for beginners. There aren’t manikins dressed in the latest trends or size options for an item. Thrifting can be tiring but when you score a $4 top similar to one for $30 you were drooling for online, the satisfaction is magnificent. In the featured video, one of my favorite You-tuber provides important tips to find great pieces.

Here are some other tips to keep in mind:

-Browse the shoe section first (there are fewer shoes than clothing)

-Look for store’s sale dates (Savers 50 percent off sale on Memorial Day)

-Search all sizes (Oversized t-shirts and tops are trendy)

-Wear comfortable clothing (Try on all of your selections)
