My Goodwill addiction and BTW, what the heck am I going to do with these???
Have I mentioned my obsession with the Goodwill store near my house? I mean, I have to stop there at least once a week to snoop around and see what good stuff other folks have given up. This is so something my mother would do. I never in a MILLION years thought I would enjoy this. Walking into a junky thrift store makes me all but break out into a rash. But the Goodwill store, at least MY Goodwill store is organized. By color. Which is fun for me because for some reason this works with my brain and doesn't make me feel like I am surrounded by junk. The kids love it too because if they see something out of place, they go "Hey, this belongs in the blue aisle!" and they put it back where it belongs :) Keeps them occupied while I browse, so YAY for that! Oh, and in my defense, I probably donate twice as much to Goodwill as I purchase. Just had to point that out. I wouldn't want to be accused of being a clutterbug. I hate clutter.
