Meanwhile, I have also started a new job, where the appropriate dress is business--skirts, slacks and nice blouses, or suits. I'm more a casual jeans/capris kind of gal, so this means I need new clothes. New temporary clothes.
As an inexpensive solution I went to Goodwill, where I invested 3 hours and about $38 and ended up with a nice black skirt, a black velvet split skirt, 3 pairs of slacks, 1 shirt, 2 sweaters, 1 short dressy jacket (brand new), and a pair of gently used, very cute black snow boots. As cute as snow boots can get anyway.
That's just the clothes. I also gold-colored chain necklace, a vinyl record, a brand new ornament for a party gift, and a darling pitcher shaped like a snowman, (just for fun.)
The most expensive item? The snowman pitcher--which was also the impulse buy. Naturally.
Goodwill is having a donations photo contest. Check it out, make a donation, and help people like me! It helps people who need job training and a hand up in life as well.
