Change the World Wednesday - post for 2 weeks
Update from last week (which I missed posting):
I skipped participating two weeks ago, mostly because the goal had been to visit a goodwill or resale place. Buy something used instead of something new. I hadn't visited a shop like that in years and hadn't been able to visit one last week either, so I ended up not participating.
I did, however, stop buy a Goodwill place this past weekend to drop off some clothes and decided to go in. I was hoping there would be a large selection of items other than clothes, but was disappointed. Clothes were the largest selection, toys being the second. I honestly doubt I'll shop there again. Nothing grabbed my interest, most of what was there were things that I wouldn't buy, new or used. As for the clothes, I'm picky when it comes to clothes. I have a hard time shopping for clothes at places like that, even retail stores, where the clothes are all lumped together and I have to look at each one to see if I would like it. I prefer to see the item of clothing, then see all the colors it's offered in. Do you know what I mean? Where the table has the same item, I don't have to look at each item folded on that table, each stack is the same item. Anyway, I realize I could get some deals if I used re-sale shops, but it's just not for me. Or maybe it's this particular shop that isn't for me. It's the closest one to my house which is why I stopped at it.
On to this week!
