It is common knowledge that the word “sale” makes people happy. Many people like to shop, but what they like more is thrift shopping; anything that allows them to buy more while spending less.Not only women, there are men too, who wait for sales, so that they can go out and shop for what they want without having to worry about going broke.

Thrift stores used to be cheap, but that is not always the case now. At some occasions, it was found that the sale items were priced even higher than their original price. With the increasing prices and inconsistent pricing system, these stores are not always a viable option. Goodwill stores are the best option in such cases. Their discount deals each week help you keep more money in your pocket!

Color Code Sale

Goodwill stores have come up with a few really innovative shopping ideas that benefit not only them, but the customer as well. These ideas make shopping fun while allowing you to save a lot more than you expected, if you play your cards intelligently.

The color rotation sale that Goodwill has every week is one of their most successful ideas. Every week, other than the regular sale items they have a color tag sale. This means that the items that have a tag of that specific color, are 50% off!!

One way to maximize your savings is to know the color rotation. Some shoppers see an item they like, and hold off on the urge of buying it instantly. They wait for the color rotation to change to the color of that item so that they can buy it for a lot less than its original price.  The drawback to this system is that, the item they were holding out for, may not be there by the time it goes on sale.

Stop by your local store to see what their color rotation cycle is. For example last week the color was yellow, this week it is purple! Understanding this rotation is what is going to save you on a lot of money. Typically a color is only on sale once a month. So, if the month started with the black color tag, then this color will most likely not be repeated again throughout that month. So if you want something with a black tag, and it is on sale this week, then grab it while you have the chance. After the week is over, another color tag will be on sale.

Goodwill stores are gaining huge popularity due to these amazing discount deals. 50% off on items of selected colors, along with other sales, are making Goodwill stores a hit among thrift shoppers. Head over to one of your local Goodwill stores to enjoy these amazing discounts and see what you can find!
