" Well why would I want something that someone else gave away".
#3. Find the nearest goodwill in cities that have affluent neighborhoods,You will be surprised and shocked what you'll find.
#5 Repourpose,Repair,Re-do! If you find something that isnt quite right, only need's some minor repairs , DO IT!
(ALSO If you are an artist this is a cheap way of getting canvas's as long as the picture isnt textured you just invest in some white paint and white wash it!)
#11. BOOKS!! Holy crap...well at least they thought it was. I would have to say at least 65% of the books we currently own are from Goodwill. Hard to find, Out of print, Just ODD!? Yup got it at GW.
Here's a few examples of books purchaced: Winemaking books, local history books(comes in handy around Winter Carnival medallion hunting time),How to build... damn near anything books, Every Cook book you could imagine, Some of the best childrens books you can remember from your childhood.
Kitchen Appliances- Vaccume Food Saver was one of the best things I've gotten at GW(they retail for $79.00 and up) I paid $6.99 for mine. Currently we are looking for a food dehydrator and a Juicer.
