I have always envied those bloggers that have thrift stores with a dollar day. In my neck of the woods, Goodwill have 50% of a certain color tag that changes every Thursday and an occasional weekend sale with 50% off everything and $0.99 denim. ARC has 50% off a certain color tag and a Saturday sale with 50% off all but the current week tag. There is still a profit to be made in re-sales on Ebay, but you just have to sell more items!
One day a few months ago I had a lady shopping in Goodwill verbalize her disappointment that they don’t have a dollar day like the Salvation Army does. I was quick to check with the Salvation Army and yes they confirmed that they have $1 clothing on Wednesday. I was excited and surprised that although it is certain color tags, it generally is everything that is not current week. Clearly this place is not picked over until Wednesday!!!
I can see my profits on Ebay going up already $$$$ :)
Here is some of the items that I found.
These Prana Size M (yoga wear) pants were $1 and sold for $8.00
J. Jill 100% Tencel Size M pants were $1 and sold for $6.99
Abercrombie & Fitch Navy Cargo Size 10 pants were $1 and sold for $6.99
Caribbean Joe Green Cargo to Capri Size 14 pants were $1 and sold for $6.99
J. Jill Aqua Cropped Size 14 pants were $1 and sold for $6.99
North Face Size S shirt was $1 and sold for $5.99
Chico’s (always a sure fire sale) was $1 and sold for $6.99
So in a days work this $7 investment made me $41.00
The so SAD part (yes, I might be screaming) is that on the usual Wednesday visit to my new love, I am surprised to not see the usual sign on the door to greet me with my treasure hunt colors :(
The sign stated that all clothing was 50% off!
What? Wait, what happened to dollar day?
As I found a few items and made my way to the cashier, I noticed a calendar of upcoming sales and notice that every Wednesday is 50% off day? I politely asked the cashier if Wednesday was going to now be 50% off and she stated, “yes, the day of the dollar is now gone.” She said it such a way as to imply that it is like everything else good that comes to an end.
So now I see my profits being eaten away a little more with cost!
My Red Friends at the Salvation Army
Now have me a little sad and blue!
