Hard Core Only

Do you love to shop? Do you have no money? Have you no shame? Well, the Goodwill outlet is for you. New one just opened at 8300 Georgetown Road and I just had to go. This is not for the fainthearted. 45 giant bins roll out every three hours and you must dig through god-knows-what-is-on-them piles of clothing and assorted household detrius. The pro wear gloves and they are PUSHY. Sometimes the furniture is a seriously cheap score especially the 50's and 60's stuff otherwise it all that ugly sofa sectional thingys you see people moving on the back of a pickup and wonder why are they even bothering. Anyway, you want to fill that cart up as it is priced by the pound and the more you buy the cheaper it gets. The problem with this is you start to put thing into your cart that are sort of a desperation purchase, to make it to the 50 lb/50 cent mark. Like, a shirt that is the size your sitter's boyfriend's mom's friend's kid wears. Or one andiron. Or a really nasty frying pan. Got there too late to meet the Goodwill guy which disappointed me to no end.
