What can we do today? #ThriftyThursday

As we get deep into the dog days of summer, I continue to wonder what kind of activities that I can do with my son to keep him occupied and happy.  Thanks to Goodwill, we are always able to find items to include in our fun indoor and outdoor activities.

During my last thrifty sIMG_0594hopping spree, I found plenty of items in include in my arsenal of answers to “What can we do today?” As I browsed the vast number of books in my local store I was able to find some fun age-appreciate books for my one year old.

We spend several hours a day reading books, so it is always nice to find new books that we can add to our collection that are budget-friendly.  IMG_0595

My journey continued, I love being able to browse around and see what bargains I can find. My son enjoys watching children’s programs every now and again.  I was able to pick up educational movies to keep my son entertained, when he can sit still.

Goodwill has an ever-changing amount of toys and stuffed animals for children. For a thrifty $.99 I was able to pick up a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal. Mickey seems to be my son’s current fascinationIMG_0592. The toy department is always chocked-full of fun items. I was able to find my son a fun Little Tikes ball toy. This will help us as we work on his hand eye coordination and motor development.

So when the weekend comes and you have run out of ideas of what can we do today, head over to Goodwill. Pick up a book, a movie and a toy. These items will surely entertain your children. And you will feel good knowing that because you shopped at Goodwill you’re making a difference in our community.
