To all of you thrift store shoppers out there...have I got great news for you!

Goodwill now has coupons!

I can't believe this. When I was a kid they use to have bag day and everything you could get in a bag was a dollar (my mom could get a lot of stuff in one of those little bags).

Every once in a while, Goodwill will have 1/2 price day. When these come around they are good for the whole county, so you can go to more than one store for bargains. I usually go late at night, the night before and scope out the deals.....if I really want it, I might even try to hide it...Did I just admit that to the world?

The day of the sale, get there as soon as the store opens. Be prepared for a crowd. These days can resemble the mall on Black Friday. After finding all of the bargains, go home and relax because you might want to head back at the end of the day to see what else is there. They are bringing things out continuely during the day, so once the crowds have let down there just might be more amazing deals waiting for you.

Now back to the reason for this post. If you go to you will find all kinds of information and coupons about the Goodwills in Sarasota and the surrounding counties. For those of you that don't live near me, ask around and see if there is something like this out there for you too. Let me know what you find.
