Goodwill *Now with more odor*Well the proverbial ball is officially rolling for our move, as today was our appointment with TMO (Traffic Management Office (or fancy military talk for the people who get us squared away for our move)). So what did I do to "celebrate"? I bought two plates. Yep...two breakable items to be packed up and shipped 1400 miles away. I'm too smart for my own good.
Before you judge me, like I judged myself, let me say I got them from Goodwill for $1.99 a pop. Now also let me tell you that I am shocked...SHOCKED I tell you, that I found anything at one of our local Goodwill's. While the rest of you thrifty people find awesome things to clean up and transform...I find crap. Our Goodwill's are filled with absolute crap (98% of the time).
Some of you might say "But Ashley, we really have to dig for our finds" and you know what I have to say to that? You suck (I kid, I'm just bitter). I'm lucky if I am able to stay in one area for longer then 2 minutes because there is someone following me around with awful BO or someone who it farting or someone with farty smelling BO. I kid you not...they find me EVERY TIME.
Thus finding these two wall hanging plates...originally from Target at that, was lucky. Very very lucky.
If these little babies make it through the move I am going to use them in the kitchen for my very own wall of plates display/art (pretty much everyone and their dogs are doing it and I'm following suit damnit)!
So there you have it...three years here and the only thing I've found are two plates and a headache from the smells that have followed me.
Have you found awesome things at Goodwill? Yes I will judge you, lovingly of course, for your awesome finds. Can I come visit you and your Goodwill?
