My Trip to the Goodwill Outlet – aka “The Bins”

Last Saturday I visited “The Bins” – love ’em or hate ’em, you’re going to have a memorable experience!

You definitely have to have the right frame of mind & mood to enjoy a root through the bins.  If you like a calm, relaxed, and organized atmosphere, this is not the place for you.  However, if you are a bit of an adrenaline junkie, and can spot a bargain from ten yards away, then you must get to the closest Goodwill Outlet now!

In the middle of the video, I show photos of some of the items I dragged home.  I tried to show the price tags in the photos, BUT none of the price tags applied – – the price of items is determined by the weight!  In this case, my entire thrift shop haul totaled about $16 – – which was cheaper than I would have paid for just the two house coats! The Eddie Bauer coat is like new, perfectly sized for my husband, and would have cost something in the $200 region if I had bought it in a retail store or online.

Here’s a link to find a Goodwill Outlet in the U.S. as well as some great tips and FAQs on how to make the most of your visit.  The one that I visited was in London, Ontario, Canada.  There doesn’t seem to be an easy way to locate Outlets in Canada.  Hmmm – that’s a shame!

Let me know what your best bargain has been at The Bins!
