Goodwill`shopping


8 posts in this topic

For those of you who have gone to goo will to buy transition clothes. Do you think there is a better day of the week to go? I am thinking it might be Wednesday as people drop stuff off over the weekend and that would leave Monday and Tues to sort and get stuff off.

I find it odd. It looks like I kept dressy type clothes for a couple of sizes going down but missing some in casual like caprices.

Ask at your goodwill in particular bc they are all different! I like to go on Sundays bc that's the day a new color tag goes on sale at half price. Mine also has a "new items" rack and they put an entire new rack of stuff daily except for Friday-Sunday so I can drop in if I'm grocery shopping next door and just look at that rack!

Sunday and Wednesday are the 99 c day here, so I tend to go on Wednesday night.

I don't go on a specific day so much as I go to the ones in the more affluent areas. The brands are usually higher quality.

Many cities and towns have multiple second-hand / thrift / consignment clothing for sale by these groups:

* Goodwill

* Salvation Army

* Churches (the Episcopalians have really nice clothes ;) )

* Hospitals

* Charitable organizations that support women's shelters and women re-entering the work force

* For-profit consignment clothing stores

* Plato's Closet (this is a for-profit chain)

Online sites that sell second-hand clothing include:

* thredUP

* The Attic

* Poshmark

* mashable

* eBay

What I have heard from clerks at Goodwill is that Tuesday is a good day to go. They receive so many donations over the weekend. It takes them time to get the stuff out on the floor.

Wow. This post was really helpful. I love this site and really enjoy reading all of the wonderful post. I have never shopped at a goodwill, but it will be first on my list when I can drive. I'm 8 days post op, but I have to wear a suit to work 4 days a week. This was really helpful.
