Goodwill +$25 = A Fun Morning

Tuesday, I wrote about inexpensive ways to give yourself a treat (HERE), one of my favorites on the list is to go on a treasure hunt!
I love to head out to my favorite GOODWILL-SA at Highway 281 and Bitters Road to see what surprises await.(I hope to check out the new location at Bulverde and 1604 very soon).  It always takes me away from stress for awhile and puts a smile on my face as I leave the store with bargains!  Recently, I set a limit and decided not to exceed twenty five dollars....


For my $25, I scored:

1. A pair of nude flats (love)
2. A Coldwater Creek print blouse (perfect for teaching summer school)
3. A new Chico's cotton deep purple blouse.
4. Two books for my little grandson!









Do you need a little treat?  Head out to Goodwill to see what you can find!!

Personal Trainer Report:  I CAN BARELY WALK!!  My thighs are so sore from squats!  I know, I know...it's a good thing!  Stick around to see where he takes me next.  We have not finalized my calorie count yet.  He is still assessing my metabolism.

Now, please join the bloggers of KATIE'S FAVORITE THINGS BLOG HOP! and have a wonderful Thursday!!

  3. Great Goodwill treats, Pam. I especially love the top in 2nd photo.
    I think my metabolism runs as slow as molasses because for too many years I have had next to zero exercise. I need to get moving and stop being so sedentary. Let us know how things go.

  10. Great buys, each piece looks like a winner. I never leave the Goodwill SA without a book or some paper product to use later. I've been inspired to get some help with my weight because of your previous post, and will be scouting a trainer and nutrition help also. Thanks for the motivation. Enjoy

  15. I love it, what a way to set your priorities! A personal trainer for you and a $25 limit for fun spending. That is definitely the way to take care of yourself!! I recently decided to get back in shape and am trying to do it myself. I could bend over the first week... this week's going much better!! Enjoy the personal trainer and can't wait to follow your progress!!

  16. Keep up the good work, Pam. Could not be more proud of you. My sis will be here on Saturday and we are going to celebrate her loss of a little over 40 lbs in 3 months. She looks and feels great! YOU CAN DO IT!

  19. I was a dinner the other night and some how the conversation turned to Goodwill shopping.
    I was amazed at how many of the people at the party were GW regulars.
    There was a gentleman there that was a Tues. regular for the 55 and over discount
