May 2015 Summary

Here is some of the haul but had to leave the larger items out to make one photo.The month of May of 2015 was a great period of time for finding some better quality items that I couldn’t leave without placing on the cashier’s table before I left Goodwill. Here is a quick synopsis of the brands I found with my out of pocket expense and an estimate of what it would cost if you were to purchase it new for each category with a link to where I found the price of the item or one very similar to it:

The shirt price total was outrageous due to the Givenchy shirt being the bulk of this number at $1,895. What a shirt and it still has the tags on it! The total for my cost was $422.67 and if you were to buy it all new would set you back a wolping $33,916.79. I look forward to the month of June as I located two more Goodwill stores I haven’t visited that promise to offer even more “high end” items!
