Goodwill wants to make back to school shopping fun for kids…and parents!
Our Director of Marketing and Development took her children back to school shopping.
Below is her experience at our 180th & Q location!
Back to school shopping is a major process – going from store to store hunting for clothes, shoes, backpacks and school supplies. Not to mention your wallet takes a hit. For the past few years I started planning my back to school shopping a bit differently. Before I shopped at the big box retailers for back to school items, now I make Goodwill my first stop. I start looking for deals on kid’s clothing – because let’s be honest, kids can be quite picky when it comes to finding that perfect outfit for the first day of school. And with kids growing out of their clothes so quickly, it is a challenge to not spend too much by paying full price.
This year we began our back to school shopping at Goodwill on 180th and Q Street. I took my four year old daughter Amelia to look for deals on clothes she can wear to preschool. We found the perfect Justice shirt with a bright pink sparkly A on the front for only $1.59. Now it’s her new favorite shirt! We even had luck finding pants – Old Navy jeans for $2.99 and lounge pants for $1.59.
Of course we couldn’t leave the store without hitting up the toy section. We walked out with a Disney princess game and a stuffed animal for $1.99 each.
By shopping at Goodwill for back to school clothes, I can feel good about diverting clothes from the landfill as well as saving money for my family. All while getting really great items that my kids love.
Make Goodwill your first stop for back to school shopping!

The BOO!dwill Halloween Costume Contest won’t stay dead, nor should it! Because it’s that time a year again when you need to start thinking “Halloween costume” and “Goodwill” in the same sentence!
Goodwill is an awesome place to shop for Halloween costumes. Are you someone who likes to dream up some creative outfit and enjoys the hunt for just the right pieces? We have nineteen stores around town where you can find those costume ingredients. Or are you someone who just wants a quick and easy costume so you’re not the person dressed up as “suburbanite” or “adult” at the Halloween party? We’ve got plenty of more traditional costumes too! And no matter which camp you fall into, your costume purchases at Goodwill stores help put people to work — and they can win you some treats.
We want to see what you’ve come up with by shopping at our stores, so it’s time show off your costume and win prizes in the process — by entering the BOO!dwill Halloween Costume Contest!
1. Between now and 5 p.m. on Monday, November 2, 2015, e-mail a photo of yourself in a costume you either purchased or assembled from items purchased at an Omaha area Goodwill to [email protected].
Updated: This years contest will be based on Facebook likes. Please visit the Boo!dwill 2015 Facebook Album and like your favorite costume. Only “likes” will determine our winner, shares and comments are not needed in order to win..
2. In the email, tell us your name, how to contact you, and at which store(s) you bought your costume.
That’s it! We’ll be sharing the entries as we receive them on our Facebook wall. On Wednesday, November 11, the voting will close, and the top three will all receive Goodwill gift certificates ($100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd, $25 for 3rd)!

Back to school shopping is expensive and time-consuming. As a parent, you are often going store-to-store looking for the right name brands, the cool styles and the best bargains for all of your kids. Well, look no further – Goodwill is here!
I recently stopped at the Goodwill at 180th & Q and found some really awesome deals on cute clothes for an elementary school-aged girl. These fourteen items would make the perfect back to school wardrobe. Boom. You could be done shopping in just one trip.
As always, the best part about Goodwill is the price. And this #ThriftyThursday, we’re going to do things a little differently. It’s contest time!
Comment on this page or on our Facebook status the amount you think all 14 of these items combined cost (before tax) and we’ll help you go back to school with a $20 Goodwill gift card. Price is Right rules here – must be closest without going over.
Good guess everyone!
