goodwillIt may not be your number one choice for where to shop, but the fact remains that Goodwill is sort of like the country’s largest garage sale. The costs of back to school items can certainly add up, and while many people don’t really think about it, you can get many of the items you need at Goodwill.

In my opinion, Goodwill is not a store that only poor people should shop at. Any budget-minded consumer who is interested in saving money should pay a visit. There are plenty of items in great condition that sell for a fraction of the price you’d end up paying if you bought them new. You can find the closest Goodwill center to you buy typing your zip code in their website.
