Frugal Christmas Shopping

Well, today was a first.  On the way home from church today, I had to make a stop at the automated stamp machine (in the post office lobby).  Since we were right across the street from Good Will, I told my boys that I needed to run in "quick" to check on a book for my niece.  She is collecting a certain author, and is wanting hard cover books for her collection.  Hardcover books are expensive!  Since I have had a lot of success in the past at buying nice books at Good Will, I thought I would take a chance.  Well, I was disappointed because I didn't find a book for my niece, but my boys hit the jackpot!!!!  Yippee!!!!  They found three 4-pack CD's of Adventures in Odyssey (a favorite from Focus on the Family) for $2.99 each!  These often retail around $25.00!!!  I agreed that I would buy them for their Christmas stockings, if they "could forget"!!!  My purchase was around $9.00 and I saved a ton!!   I have never purchased Christmas presents at Good Will before, but I am not ashamed to say that I have!  And I think this frugal lady might just have to do some more! 

Stay tuned, I intend to blog about other ways I have benefitted from Good Will Stores and ebay, in the future.

I would love to hear your frugal stories too!  :) Pin It Print Friendly and PDF
