found it, sort of...

So I stepped into Goodwill this past Saturday, looking around as I usually do (I'm sorta addicted. Oh there's a surprise, Nathan's addicted to something. Or rather, a lot of somethings.) And JUST as I'm about finished, I start to leave the "housewares section" and laying on it's side, on top of an organ (no joke!) with a couple other oddities that looked like someone was considering purchasing them at one time (but hopefully left them behind, cause uh, I done took it!) was ONE method green mint (how coincidental!) bloq body wash! ONE! Only one in the entire store! How weird.

I went up to purchase it (oh and for some freakin' reason here in ole' North Carolina, at least Greensboro, Goodwill thinks it's some TJMaxx or something, the prices they have are usually crazy. And not in a good way. I'm like, $10. for bowl?! What the crap? Cause another method lust reader found hers for a mere .99 cents! But mine was $1.99. Either I'm cheap, or Goodwill has gotten greedy. Cause the Salvation Army down the street is usually rolling in really great "yard sale" prices!) Anyway, I asked the lady at the counter if she'd seen these here, or knew of any more, and she had no clue. So perhaps they'll get more in, or this was just my lucky find.

And I hope this doesn't come out wrong, but uh, does anyone else here feel weird about buying body care products at a Goodwill? Just curious...

I think I'd be a little freaked about buying body care products at the Goodwill, unless they had bunches of them. I just wouldn't want someone's leftovers. Ick!

people who work for Goodwill are taught to price items based on their personal perception of brand, quality, and condition. i have been in Goodwill and found brand new Tupperware (one of my obsessions) for .99 next to an icky piece of Rubbermaid priced at 2.99. someone working at your local Goodwill must know method and believe it's worth more.

nah, I don't think it's weird because at least at my local Goodwill, I know it's leftover stock from the local Target, not like it came from someone's bathroom. : )
