Lindsay’s Latest Thrift Haul

Who doesn’t enjoy finding an amazing clearance sale? Yesterday’s 50% off sale at Goodwill is my little slice of thrift heaven!  Who would not love snagging a designer dress for an upcoming event for $3.25? Or a new blouse for the office for a little over $2? If you’re really lucky, perhaps an entire outfit for the upcoming school year for $4.50?  I wanted to share with you a few of the items that I picked up on my latest trip to Goodwill…

Escapada Shift Dress (Approximate Retail $95 paid $3.25)

Free People Dress (Approximate Retail $259 – I paid $3.25)

Alice & Olivia Blouse (Approximate Retail $ 95 – I paid $2.15)

Old Navy Blouse (Approximate Retail $20 -I paid $2.15)

Lily Pulitzer Dress (Approximate Retail $250 – I paid $3.25)

Black RBL Dress (Approximate Retail $79 -I paid $3.25)

Boy’s Ralph Lauren Polo Shirt (Approximate Retail $39 – I paid $1.25)

If I had paid full retail I would have spent approximately $837 – instead I paid $18.55!

Some advice when shopping at your local Goodwill:


Think outside of the box and choose the items that could benefit you and your family year-round instead of the immediate.


Do not limit yourself to one season or look.  If the item is in excellent condition and could be used 6 months from now it would benefit you to go ahead and purchase the item.


I also recommend not only searching for great year-around staple items but also splurging on those extra items such as accessories, scarfs, etc. that would give your outfits a little more of a polished and fun look!


I would love to see all the treasures you’ve found at Goodwill so please tag us in your pics and posts!

Happy thrifting!  – Lindsay (The Thrifty Southern Belle)


  1. Awesome finds! I picked up two brand new pairs of black pants with tags still on!

    • That’s great Sheryl!! – Lindsay

  2. Which goodwill store do you have the most luck at finding name brand clothes? What about new with tags items?

    • Hi Dusti,
      I shop at every Goodwill I come across. The ones pictured were from the Goodwill in Lexington, SC. Take an afternoon and perfect your thrifting shopping techniques and what works best for you. Give yourself plenty of time to learn your closest store and try to visit every few days. Happy thrifting! – Lindsay
