Goodwill State of Mind for Year's End!!

So far, this is my donation pile for Goodwill SA.  We still have five days to make a donation and receive a tax credit for 2013.  Goodwill hands us a receipt upon request!

Some of my favorite wardrobe pieces have come from Goodwill this past year!

My favorite denim shirt came straight from Goodwill...I wear it often!

Favorite jacket and scarf found in 2013!

And, of course, I still love my coats!

Remember, it is not only a great time to donate, it is a great time to shop Goodwill...because so many people are donating.  I had to show you this skirt, a fellow teacher made from ties she bought at GOODWILL.
So, let's clean out those closets everyone!!

Have a fabulous Friday!!


  1. Hi Pam!

    Merry Holidays to you and family!
    This is something that Goodwill doesn't do around here, give tax receipts to individuals
    I have seen your other posts, grandson is adorable

    Take care of yourself



  2. It's such a pity we don't have here that kind of shops.
    Your findings are amazing.

  3. OMG. Blogger has swallowed my comment TWICE! Once more...

    Love the tie skirt and your leopard coat!
    There is a Goodwill in Austin (on S Congress?) that has provided me with many treasured items. My allegiance may have shifted to Savers though. Found so many awesome items during the TxSC 2012 "field trip" on my last visit to Austin.

  4. I love the coat too and all of your fabulous finds!
    I have a pretty good pile started along with some outgrown toys.
    Have a blessed New year!

  5. Wow Pam! The coat is gorgeous and the tie-skirt is just wonderful! Such a great idea :) Hugs, Beata xxx

  6. I just made a donation of about 15 years' worth of accumulated coats and jackets last weekend! Was happy to clear them out and the nice folks at Goodwill were happy to get them.

  7. A great reminder that we have a few more days for the win-win if donating and cleaning!

  8. You have found some great pieces at Goodwill. I donate often. You are inspiring me to do some cleaning myself!

  9. Cleaning out the closets is exactly what I plan to do when I get back to England! I always give unwanted clothes and things to charity & it's time for a clear out. Happy Holidays, Pam!

  10. I'm in love with that leopard coat! I just started thrifting over the summer, and now I write for Thrift Town...a chain of thrift stores here in the southwest. I too am over 50 and have my own blog for older women...http://whosaprettygirl.com By the way, you look great!

  11. What a good idea! In Canada we don't get a tax receipt for clothing donations. You have found some really stylish outfits at the Goodwill. I have literally no more room in my closet so I am weeding.

  12. Hi Pam! Thank you for commenting on So What to Twenty! While you are donating to Goodwill, I am planning a trip to Goodwill Palm Springs and other thrift stores. I have accepted a thrifting challenge from a fellow blogger. I hope I am as.foryunate to find a gorgeous leopard coat. Its ony Must Haves. Happy New Year :)


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
