GW ~ a great new store

img_2278

My friends Betty and John, from the now closed Trump campaign office in west Jacksonville, told me about an abfab new store they shop at. “It’s GW,” they said.

“GW?” I asked. “Never heard of it.”

“Goodwill,” they laughed.They go on Monday, which is senior day and get another percentage off the already low-low prices. They often get designer clothing for $4 to $6. Many times they get items with the original price tags on showing the item was three to four times what they’re about to pay for it.

I’m a Christian and I believe in God’s blessing, provision, and His bounty. But I’m also frugal and think frugal is fun. I’m conservative in many ways and think that “conserving” and “conservation” is derived from conservative thinking. I want to live believing He will provide for me…but also having self-control with my money.

So, after I went to the veterinarian to pick up heart worm meds for my dog, I stopped by the GW just down the street. Lo, and behold, I found a mug that had to be part of the set I’d purchased in Brooklyn at Marshall’s. I’d gotten them one by one , or two by two until I had eight. They weren’t all the exact pattern, but they were the same mug. Unfortunately, I’d broken one. So, when I spotted this one that was from the exact same batch, I picked it up and it was half the price I’d paid for the others. Thank You, Lord. Since I’m not shopping at Marshall’s anymore…because they turned on the Trump brand, I was glad to pick up this mug.

    You are simply being a good steward. By being frugal you will have more money to share. : )

    I recently shopped, for the first time, at our local GW. I needed a white shirt and hadn’t found one at any of the other stores. It was 50%, a grand total of $2, exactly what I wanted, a style not available in stores, 3/4 sleeves. Woohoo! I’ll be going back.
