#ThriftyThursday – a little bit country

Living in Nebraska, we have the chance to be a little bit country.  If you’ve never worn country-style pieces, it can be intimidating to start.  But sometimes it’s fun to let your cowboy side out and go to a country concert (like the Lady Antebellum concert in Omaha tonight) or just hang out with friends.  Whatever your plans, Goodwill is a great place for finding pieces to add simple country flair to your everyday look!




These Sonora cowboy boots are super cute & real leather – plus, they are in brand-new condition.  For only $14.99, they are a simple add-on for those starting to dabble in a country-look.







You can pair these boots with a cute, simple dress for a night out anywhere.  This print dress is only $7.99.  Go a little country, Omaha, and happy hunting!

#ThriftyThursday – March Madness

It’s mid-March and, in the world of sports, that can only mean one thing – March Madness is beginning!

Whether your watching at home, at  bar, or at the arena, you need to look good while supporting your team and monitoring your brackets.  You probably won’t win the billion dollar bracket, so thrift stores are a great place to find affordable clothes to cheer in.

Of course, you can find shirts that support our local teams in Omaha-area Goodwill stores (there are 13 of them!).


Nebraska is always a favorite sports team.   It’s their first time in the NCAA tournament as a member of the Big 10 conference, so make sure you show your support on Friday by wearing red!

Maybe you are more of a Creighton fan.   Goodwill has plenty of Bluejay gear for under $5.  Support the home team as they take on the Rajin’ Cajuns on Friday.

Goodwill has more than just local teams, though.

Rock Chalk in this KU shirt, $3.59

Perennial powerhouse Duke shirt, $3.59

Oregon shirt, $2.59

Play-in team University of Iowa shirt, $3.59

Only 68 teams can make the NCAA tournament each year.  But even if your team didn’t make it to the big dance, you can still get your gear at Goodwill!

Cal was one of the first four out, but this shirt is a winner, $3.59.

NIT Team Mizzou shirt, $2.59.

UNO Tee-$3.59

Even home team UNO will be competing in the post-season this year, with an appearance in the CBI.  The new Division 1 team is showing strength on the court this year.

Whether you’re saying “Go Big Red,” “Go Jays,” or supporting another team this month.  Make sure to stop at Goodwill for a great selection of NCAA branded merchandise.
