WOW I can't believe it! First of all we are on a cash system and I only had $40 in my wallet, and just popped inside a Goodwill on their 50% off day yesterday. I have been looking for an area rug, as we have all (and I mean all) tile in the house. So I found this one rolled up, and I unrolled it and saw it was nice and plush and appeared clean. Rolled it out all the way and it's not worn at all, free of stains, was a bit dusty but that's it. Rolled it out the opposite way to check the back for dog pee and no stains, and no smell of smokers. So I looked at the price and it was $59.99 but only $30 since it was sale day. I got it home and it looks fantastic in our house, and it's nice to have a place for the kids to do floor play and not have their knees hurting.
Then I looked it up and I was so surprised by the retail price. Check it out!! I have the 9x12 foot one.
BTW our cash system is working great too!
Our goodwills are not that great either, but every so often I get something big. Which I guess is why I keep looking. :-) Usually I just get games and puzzles for me and the kids. The only reason I went on the day I got the rug was because it's right next to my gym. I walked out, saw the sale and thought I'd check out any good bargains.
What a good find! I go to ours for the 75 cents cloths sales,and get tons of books for 25 cents. I was excited to find a booda oval litter box with lid for $3 that has made a nice nestbox for the chickens.Goodwills around us are expensive,and have so so stuff. The store I go to is called THRIFT village. Even the salvation army thirft isn't that good.
My sister and I usually hit up the Goodwill about once a week to see if we can find anything good... That is INCREDIBLE. GREAT find!

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
