Thrifty Thursdays with Goodwill of Orange County

thrifty-thursdays2I’m usually not big on New Year’s resolutions; however, this year I’ve decided to make a major lifestyle change: enjoying life’s luxuries without getting flattened by debt. Because honestly, who really needs to fork over 65 bucks for a basic cotton t-shirt? Right? Right.

To show you all that it IS possible to live rich and spend less, I’m scouring your favorite Goodwill of Orange County stores every week to find incredible hidden gems at unbeatable prices.

From cool home decor to fun, fashionable threads, discover the latest collection of Goodwill treasures in this week’s edition of Thrifty Thursdays.


I almost passed out when I found these super stylish size 6 Louboutin pumps at the Goodwill Boutique in Tustin. SWOON! Did I mention they only cost $99? That’s a ridiculously incredible deal when the average pair costs anywhere from $500 – $900. Now if only my feet were three sizes smaller…


I absolutely love a good statement piece, especially when it comes to furniture. Add this lovely patterned chair or contemporary ottoman to your current living room collection and your home will be set and ready for spring.

I felt like I took a trip down the rabbit hole when I stumbled upon this stellar collection of cute teacups and mismatched plates at Goodwill College Plaza. At $1.99 a pop, there is definitely a Mad Hatter-themed tea party in my foreseeable future.


I’m always on the hunt for a fashionable blazer. And low and behold, the Boutique was brimming with a stunning collection of chic and sophisticated styles, perfect for the transition to spring.
