Little Victories...

Yesterday I was g-chatting with my pal Linds and she shared with an amazing find!

This sweet little Elephant phone was for sale at Shop Goodwill






I was so excited to pick him up for my office, but the bidding on it didn't end till today. I always wait to the very last minute to bid on things in order to hopefully get a good deal and have my bid be the last one before it ends so no one can out bid. It's a dangerous game and you win some and lose some.

Well today the bidding on the phone went quite high ($45) pretty high considering the bidding started at $5.99. I was just heading in from the supermarket, got a phone call, got distracted and ran down to check the bidding. Sadly it was over.

Not one to give up so easily I started searching on ebay and I found the very same phone for a buy it now price of $39. Sold!

I can't wait to use it in my office. I think he will go great with my logo!

Some of my greatest pieces came from online Goodwill! And I am the MOST proud to show them off. I was so tired last night that I forgot to go back on three items that I had been watching for a WEEK! I am so mad at myself today because if I set an alarm on my phone and remember to bid, I usually win the item.

But do always check around on the Goodwill items because while I have gotten amazing deals, I have also almost fallen into a bidding wars over items that turn out to be quite common and much less expensive on Ebay. I am hopelessly addicted to online Goodwill. It's actually worse than my Criagslist addiction.

BTW, adorable phone. And I mean ridiculously adorable!
