They've Got Spirit, Yes They Do

Sadly we won't be needing Browns apparel for this Super Bowl weekend. In fact, not sure we'll need Browns apparel for a Super Bowl weekend, ever. 


But, regardless, there are still 16 Browns games that D and the kids get geared up for every Sunday in the Fall. As well as 15 Buckeye games, 82 Cavs games and 162 Indians games throughout the rest of the year! Because of that, Goodwill has become my go-to for all their sports gear. 

I visited the Goodwill Eastlake store a few weekends ago and here's just a small sampling of shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and a dress that I was able to find. The prices are unbeatable compared to what you'd pay at retail, especially when you consider that the pink tagged items were an additional 50% off!

And aside from professional and college team apparel, Goodwill has a ton of local high school team gear too. Always support the Boosters first, then head to Goodwill to stock up for the family. 

So when your co-worker gives you last minute tickets to the Cavs game, and you and your kids need to get geared up, consider stopping at Goodwill before spending a ton of money at retail. And all the money you save... will likely get spent at the concession stand.

New Use for a Cutlery Basket | Goodwill Project #25


This month I am focusing my attention on decluttering and organizing so that we can clear our minds and our home of “mess stress” as we enter into a new year.

The more excess stuff we can get rid of, the less messes there will be. I dream of clutter-free countertops, a stairwell without piles creeping their way up each step, a closet filled with only the clothes I actually wear, and cabinets that are so organized I could remove the doors and expose them to the world.

Big dreams are reached with little steps. So today I tackle the medicine cabinet with the help of this cutlery basket I picked up from the Goodwill location on Waterloo.



I customized the basket by wrapping red yarn through the wire grid to create the symbolic “red cross.”   



I filled the basket with all the kid’s medical necessities; rubbing alchohol, cough syrup, motrin, and of  course Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle band-aids. 



And now my medicine cabinet is exactly the way I wanted it – clutter-free and organized!
