I’m not one of those who typically finds great stuff at Goodwill. I get some clothes for my kids occasionally, my husband buys shirts there, I find the occasional clothing item for myself. But I never find the new Lands End shoes, denim jean jacket (I’ve been hunting for over a year), the paint-by-number prints, the cute vintage Christmas items, and definitely not the leather couch. Nope, not me, I just don’t have the touch. Usually.
Now I know this isn’t a leather couch (I doubt I’ll ever be the one to nab one of those!) but I was excited to see it sitting at Goodwill the other evening! I’d been thinking for a few weeks that I needed to get an old box of some kind to put the girls books in so they wouldn’t always be all over my living room. I tossed around the idea of having Travis make one but, he has so many other projects to do I hated to even mention it. I thought maybe if I’d take the time to go to garage sales I’d find something. Problem usually is if I DO find something I like, it has a price tag that is more than I want to pay.
So when I spotted this for $2.99 I grabbed it! Big Sister was just ahead of me and she stopped at it, looked back at me and said, “I suppose you like this?” I said “of course!” and picked it up and headed to the front of the store!!
