PicMonkey Image

Hello hello lovies!! I hope you are all having a fantastic day, and are ready for another goodwill/thrift haul!! This is everything that I purchased at Goodwill in the last month, the month of April, I say this every time, but I got some amazing stuff this month, and am so lucky to have found what I have! I honestly never know what I may find, and it’s always a chance, or a risk, but So worth while looking, and sometimes I come out with a a lot, a few, or nothing, you never know what you will find, it’s the hunt that is my favorite! I look at it like a treasure hunt, never knowing what I may find, it’s a ton of fun, but I have always been this way, I love finding good deals, and treasures, but who doesn’t right? I am continuing to do this blog series, as it seems like I am getting a lot of positive feedback, and you are all enjoying it! I appreciate your continued support in this series, and checking out, and sometimes being jealous of my finds, hey I am jealous of the people that was able to find even cooler stuff then me, for example, in this haul, I went into my local goodwill, and the woman (all the employees know me) said, oh ya, we had a bunch of Urban Decay stuff, but they are gone already, I almost died, lol, I got the 2 that were left, they were priced at $2.99 each, yes they are bright purple, but come on I couldn’t pass them up!! So ya, I know how it feels for sure, I can’t go every day, lol, although some people definitely do! So, I always feel fortunate to find such amazing stuff when I do go! Like I have said, I go to about 6 different stores in my area, I am so lucky to have so many so close to me, and live in a very eco-friendly, recycle friendly city/state, yes Oregon is seriously the best, and am so thankful I live in this beautiful state!! I will link below my other goodwill hauls I have done, and ps, I don’t even share everything that I purchase, like clothes, etc, because somethings are just to hard to photograph lol! I hope you enjoy my finds, if you are curious on prices that I paid on anything just ask! 🙂 Here are my favorite things this month that I found! What do you think? What is your favorite? Below is a list of my favs, make sure you come back around the same time next month for more awesome stuff I found at goodwill!! Thanks for reading! 🙂

Urban Decay 2 lipsticks (bright purple colors, but who cares) paid $2.99 each

Clear plastic thread travel bag pouch (I looked this up because it was so unique, and it retails for $78, what? it’s a piece of art, and from an exclusive designer) paid $2.99

Goodwill/Thrift Shopping Haul Beauty

IMG_8720.JPG

Hi there lovies!! Welcome to the blog today, you obviously came because you are interested in seeing how I got all of these amazing beauty products at goodwill right? Well, let me tell you, I sure did, everything you are seeing in the pictures were purchased at Goodwill. I am so incredibly lucky to have the best goodwill stores in the country, and feel very fortunate to be able to shop at several different locations, I have about 10 I circulate, and shop at regularly. There are sometimes were I find, and purchase lots of good stuff, but there are also times where I walk out with nothing. Please remember that all of these items were not purchased at the same time, or even the same day for that matter. I just get lucky, very lucky! 🙂 Most of my purchases are brand new, this post has one vintage item (the vintage gold Avon candle) sometimes I find vintage, and sometimes I find brand new donated from Target, it all just depends on the day, and what I find. I love the hunt, and the thrill of finding treasures, or my unicorns! I will include my other posts that I have posted, I will continue to post monthly post hauls, because you all really seem to enjoy them! Please keep the positive comments coming, and the negative away, I would appreciate it a lot! Let’s check out all I was able to find this month, I purchased some amazing deals, I am excited to try everything out! I am in love with the vintage Avon candle holder, it is perfect for my beauty room, it has the original candle inside even, unburned, pretty cool that I was able to find it, it smells terrible, but I love it, and for $2.99 it was such a bargain! I am also excited about all the shampoo/ conditioner that I was able to find, and will be using, perfect for my color treated hair, and they all smell amazing! I also love that I found Pixi by Petra makeup, Pixi is one of my favorite makeup at the drugstore (Target) brands, and I am a blogger for them as well. I have found a lot over the years of Pixi, and love when I do! The eyeshadow palette is from 2015 holiday collection, so that was an awesome find! What do you think is the coolest/best thing that I found this month? Let me know in the comments below, and please check out my previous posts for more amazing, and cool goodwill hauls! I hope I continue to find awesome stuff, and deals! 

P.S. I am not posting prices this month, because honestly I have already put everything away, and removed all the prices, they are the most sticky little boogers, and annoy me so much, but it’s a part of purchasing at goodwill, they have really hard to remove, and sticky stickers, lol. If there is anything you are wondering how much I paid for, just ask, they are all bargains that’s for sure, and for that I am thankful, enjoy the pictures of all the cool stuff I found this month!! 🙂

HUGE Goodwill/ Thrift Shopping Haul!

img_8634img_8632

Hello all the lovies, welcome to the blog today!! Boy do I have an awesome post for you all today!! Just like last month around this time, I have decided to share my awesome goodwill haul with you for the month of February. Also, again like last month (I will link it here) I have some amazing deals, and finds! Obviously I am a beauty blogger, so most all of this is beauty related! Sometimes when I find these deals, I can’t believe my eyes, I grab it so fast, because I know it’s a great deal! Part of the fun is the hunt, as I have said before, it’s like you are finding little treasures. I typically don’t find this much beauty/ skincare/ makeup items, but this month I scored for sure!! I was so excited for some of these finds! My favorites this month are marked below, but they include the Oh Joy pink swan, I can’t wait to hang it in my beauty room, the vintage drawer box, man this thing is so cool, it was covered in residue from cigarette smoke, I cleaned it up, and it’s perfect now, I don’t know how old it is, but it most definitely is beautiful, that will go in my beauty room as well, I couldn’t believe it was only $2.99, wow!! This was the only non Target donated item I found this month, everything else came from Target. Like I have said before, I am very thankful to have amazing goodwill’s in my city, I shop about 10 different locations on a regular basis, sometimes I find amazing stuff, sometimes I walk about with nothing. These hauls are an accumulation, but I go often, as I never know when they are going to have anything, or put it on the shelves! I also want to mention, I find, and purchase a lot more, that I don’t even show you 🙂 Sometimes, it’s to big of an item to take good photos of, or I want to use it right away, and I never show the clothes I get because it’s a pain to photograph, but I do share most of what I find as much as possible, because I think you all enjoy seeing! Thank you for the support, and if you think buying from Goodwill in any negative way, then please keep those comments to yourself, as I do not, and have been shopping, and saving thousands of dollars for years! And I would never buy “used” makeup, that’s just nasty in my opinion 🙂 These are my opinions, and I love shopping at goodwill, and am not afraid, or embarrassed what so ever, I highly recommend checking out your local goodwill, and thrift stores! Enjoy the post, if you have any questions just ask! Thanks for checking out all the cool stuff I got at goodwill this month! I am excited to start using everything now 🙂

Huge Goodwill/Thrift Shopping Haul January

img_8004

Hello lovies!! I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying 2017 so far. I apologize for being kind of mia lately. I went on a week long vacation to Las Vegas, and came back to crazy busy life as usual, and am just now starting to get back into the groove again! We also had a crazy snow storm here, which was so unexpected, as we never get much snow in Oregon, it didn’t melt for a week, it was pretty unbelievable! Well during that time, goodwill was getting stocked up of all the goodies, just waiting for me to find, lol! Let me introduce you to a new series I am going to be doing on my blog monthly. I will be doing a goodwill shopping haul, and share with you all the good goodwill deals I was able to find for the month. I have made a few haul videos on my youtube channel in the past, and they were pretty popular, so I thought it would be really fun to share with all of you every month! I have also in the past done some of these same types of blog posts, just search goodwill, and you should be able to find them! I can also link them if you want to check them out! I think goodwill shopping is so fun, I enjoy the thrill of finding good bargains, and amazing deals, I also have actually since I was a little girl, I used to love going to garage sales, and flea markets in the south growing up, and I have always loved searching for sales, and clearances, oh what fun!! Now, let me tell you, I have been shopping at goodwill for years, and over the years I have found some really amazing things, sometimes to good to be true things, but really it is true, and I am always shocked, and very thankful to have found these treasures! The whole thrill, and fun for me is never knowing what I will find! I also want to mention that, sometimes I purchase brand new items, vintage items, and gently used items. I mostly shop for the brand new items. In Oregon, we have the top goodwill stores in the nation, and it’s a million dollar industry here. I have about 10 stores in my area that I shop regularly, so I just wanted to put it out there that I don’t find everything at the same store, or at the same time. I am simply sharing with you what I find throughout the month. I also want to let you all know the big ticket items that I search for every month are brand new items that Target donates. Most everything this month is from Target donations, brand new items that has somehow been acquired by goodwill from Target. Are you excited, and intrigued? Want to know more, and what I paid for all these goodwill finds? Well let’s jump right into it!

HUGE goodwill/ thrift store shopping beauty haul target & vintage items!

Well, hello there lovies, I hope your week is going great. So, your hear because I am guessing you want to check out what I got at goodwill huh? Your at the right place, I got some amazing deals, I couldn’t believe how great, I was shocked, and so happy when I found these deals. Goodwill, and thrift store shopping I have always really enjoyed doing, there is something about the hunt, the thrill, of what you may find! I like to call it an easter egg hunt, sometimes, you just happen to get it right, and find really cool stuff, and sometimes you get nothing. I am lucky to live where I live because I have about 10 different goodwill stores, some being superstores, all within my city, awesome, I know how lucky I am. Apparently, my state (city) has the best, and most profitable goodwill’s in the country, I know this because people come to our main store to train, and I have read places, many times how profitable our goodwill’s are. I think it’s because I live in a beautiful, nature loving, eco-friendly state. I constantly am donating, and purchasing from all the goodwill’s by me, so it’s a win, win for everyone. I shop so much (okay, let’s not get crazy) but I stop in so often, that I know the employees ha, ha, hey they help me out, and give me little insights on when the good stuff comes in, they call it the 509, aka that means target stuff. So yes, most of what I buy are those 509 items, that target has sold to goodwill, I learned that goodwill get’s palettes full of random stuff like returns, clearance items, discontinued items, etc. and goodwill will then buy those palettes (not knowing what’s in them) for a very low price, so they can make a profit by selling to the customers (like myself) it’s pretty secretive still, which is weird, they aren’t supposed to say it’s from target, or that pink tags are target, or when they come in (I still don’t know, I only know when one stores 509’s comes in) I know it’s secretive I tell ya! But it’s all the fun in stopping in, and looking for stuff, most of the time I go straight back to where the cosmetics, and beauty section is, because that’s where all the good stuff always is, and duh I am a beauty blogger, and makeup junkie so of coarse I go straight to that section 🙂 

I got some amazing stuff over the past 2 months, and wanted to share with all of you, I know this is a different type of post, but a lot of the items are beauty related, so I thought you all would want to check it out too, maybe you also share a love of good deals, and bargain shopping, or finding really cool vintage items like myself. Everything is deeply discounted, and a lot of stuff in my home I have gotten a deal on at goodwill, brand new items, I love me some goodwill shopping, and am definitely not afraid to admit it! I used to post my great finds a lot on my personal Facebook, and people would be shocked, and amazed that I shop there, and find such amazing deals, I tell them, you should shop there too, why not!? 

The coolest things I have ever gotten from goodwill, OMG to many to list, but I will try!

Patio chair (smith & hawken brand, brand new in the box)

Rug (large area rug that I have had for 10 years) 

Pictures (SO many awesome pictures that are hanging on my walls)

Le creuset items

Pampered chef items

Jewelry box (from this haul)

Various makeup 

Goodwill Haul 

FullSizeRender 20 FullSizeRender 21 FullSizeRender 22 FullSizeRender 23

Okay, so as you can see from the pictures, I got some great stuff, can you believe the It cosmetics blenders were 99 cents each, of coarse I bought all 4! I also couldn’t believe that I got that set of buxom lip glosses for $4.99, I’m telling ya, I just get lucky! I have a hard time paying retail for anything now days, it’s funny, because I know I can find it at goodwill, I may wait a long time, one time I found something after a year of looking……… but it’s always worth the wait to save money, who doesn’t want to do that! 🙂 I hope you enjoy this post, and please watch the video for more details on each item in the haul! Happy bargain hunting to you all!
