Shoppers Alert!

One focus of this blog is going to be living on a budget in Chicagoland. I'm starting that focus with this awesome store you have to check out.

I'm really hoping it's not just a phase, but the new Goodwill store on Algonquin Road in Arlington Heights has tons of awesome deals. I myself acquired a $200.00 wall mount for my television for less than $40.00. It was still in the box, and all of the mounting parts were there and still wrapped in their original plastic.

Now I'm not sure if it's the newness and Goodwill is showing off, or if this is going to be a quality store. However, if you are in the area anytime soon, be sure to swing by and check it out. They had some super stuff for some super deals. I'll update you though if it goes the way of most stores like this and becomes just random junk.

If you know of any places I need to check out, let me know.

  • There are some really great Goodwill stores! I scored a pair of new Banana Republic jeans for 4.99. Yes, my husband was creeped out that I was buying jeans from Goodwill (he is a tiny bit scared of the bed bug thing, God love him) but I washed them 5 times and they were perfect! The mothers at my kids school often ask me where I get my clothes and ever so often I tell them Goodwill and they cringe and stare at me. I love Goodwill. Who cares what people think!
