And for a new car (or something like that) the right price is.....

Sorry if I'm responsible for you not getting a good night's sleep. I'm sure you've been tossing and turning waiting for the answer to my last post.

So...The Grand total was.....$6.00, which makes Alice the winner of the new car, I mean the winner of a special "Alice" blog post next week.

The crazy thing is that was all based on their standard, everyday prices -- no special sales, free stuff or anything funny like that.

Here's the breakdown:


GLASSWARE old system: 10 cents a piece (I would have paid .50), New system: 10 cents per pound, I had 4 pounds so 8 cents for each of my 5 glass pieces

SEPARATELY PRICED ITEMS old and new system, a few items get priced separately and are tagged and set aside -- that was the case with the chair ($1.00) and the log holder ($1.00).

EVERYTHING ELSE old system: 50 cents each, new system: 30 cents each!

Yes, everything else (12 items) cost me just .30 each including that super cool bird cage -- THIRTY CENTS!

For a grand total of just $6.00.

I think I'm going to have to plan trips to the Goodwill back into my rotation.

P.S. Thanks for playing along.

Midge,
I think it would be worth it to drive to your town just to get the prices on that junk! Let's see...how far are you from NY? Plus the price of gas...haha Oh well, it's a nice thought!
I did find some great stuff at our RM at 50% off everything this weekend only! woo hoo.

Holy junk! Those prices are amazing. I need a Goodwill Outlet around here. We have great Goodwills but the prices are waaaay higher than that. I will have to look online and see if we have one close by.

Congrats to Alice!! You did great, Midge, our GW never can decide if they are gonna play it high or low from day to day, but since it is only 2 minutes from my house, I check it often, lately I've been taking a few boxes of donations, too. Lezlee
