#ThriftyThursday: I am a spontaneous Goodwill shopper. If I run across an item I feel would come in handy, I put it in my basket. This thought process granted me two of my favorite Goodwill finds: a woven clothing hamper and a giant Cracker Barrel mug.

Upon moving into my current apartment, I searched for a clothing hamper that hid the items stored inside. The hamper is in the perfect color pallet and even came with a removable linen bag. This thrifty find might possibly be the most practical purchase I have made yet. Thank you to the Northfield location in Louisville for this Goodwill gold!

“Save me from the daily grind.” I use this Cracker Barrel mug to hold odds and ends on my bed stand. I was originally motivated to purchase this ceramic piece from the New Circle store because it was a great conversational piece. Now, I use it for the sake of practicality.

Here is my number one thrifty tip: if you find a practical item that you like, talk yourself into purchasing it! You never know, it may become your next #ThriftyThursday.



our history

Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Louisville since 1923. Goodwill gives people up—not a handout—so they can experience the dignity and independence that comes from earning a paycheck.


our mission

We help people with disabilities or other disadvantages achieve and maintain employment to gain a better quality of life.

what we do

Goodwill collects and sells donated items to fund programs for Kentuckians who have disabilities or other challenges in finding and maintaining traditional employment. On-the-job training, job preparation skills, and employment counseling are just a few of Goodwill's services that benefit thousands of adults each year and strengthen families in Kentucky's communities.
