Shopping Goodwill takes patience. You can go five times in a row and not find a single thing. It can be discouraging. It can also be addicting. Derek and I know where every Goodwill is located in Tucson. We have been to all of them. We have favorites. We are junkies. Thrift stores in general are close to our hearts, but Goodwill is the nearest and dearest. Because there is so much to take in, you must have a good eye and focus. I have walked past awesome finds only to have Derek come right behind me and ask me if I saw the amazing whatever. It’s a fun game for us.
We hit the mothaload today!
It’s a paper-cutter. They sell for about $350 give or take. Der spotted this in the box. Brand new, still covered in protective film.
When he showed me, I was hesitantly excited. “How much?” That can be hit or miss with Goodwill. Sometimes you wonder if they think they are selling pure gold and other times you wonder who was crazy enough to mark it so cheap. This was the latter! *She squeals enthusiastically*
An awesome bargain is to me as a fresh crack rock is to a crackhead.
You are reading that price tag correctly. $39.99.
But it gets BETTER!
*She squeals more enthusiastically!*
As in we got a brand new Cricut Expression for the low, low price of 20 bucks!
So here’s what I think about that
It took me three tries to make that. What a fun toy. There will definitely be some learning from trial and error, but I am really stoked about all of the things I can create.
Happy dance! Woot woot!
