Goodwill Hunting

This weekend I spent Saturday at four Goodwills in the Seattle-area. I know, I’m as shocked as you are. Not one, but four. I’m on the hunt to cost-effectively furnish my new digs. I just need 2 low bookcases, a long narrowish desk, a small dining room set and a love seat (preferably with a chaise lounge feature). And while I didn’t find any furniture, I did pick up 4 books, a pair of slacks, 3 pairs of shoes, a black leather bomber jacket, blue blazer, one skirt, one blouse and a new appreciation for thrift stores all for under 100 dollars.

And for the record, I took the longest shower of my life when I got home.

PS. I also went actual furniture shopping, because the idea of buying a used sofa gives me the heebie jeebies. C’mon, I still have standards people.
