The salavation army a couple miles from my house is sooo fantastic! It's one of the larger ones I've seen. And I don't know if it's because it's in a good neighborhood but their selection is actually quite good....for a thrift store. And on Wednesday everything is half off!
I go every Wednesday and have bought about a zillion sleepers, pajamas and various name brand tops and bottoms. For example.....today I bought 3 footy pajamas, 4 pajama bottoms, one children's place green cords, one Children's Place striped sweater, 3 Carter's floral tops, 1 Carter's yellow capris, 1 Carter's snowflake fleece pullover, one OshKosh Knit Top, one pair of velour track pants for molly, and 2 video taps for only....$20! That's nearly $1 per item!
And remember, if you are close to crossing over that tax bracket, if you donate to salvation army, get a receipt for everything you give. All you do is estimate how much each thing is worth and that's what the receipt reflects. When taxes come due you can deduct how much you donated from your annual income. If you're close to the threshold, it could be your "salvation" from paying a whole lot more in taxes! Here's a link to estimating the value of your stuff.
