There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

Everything you need to know about shopping Goodwill’s online store!

Sharing is caring!

Are you familiar with Goodwill? If you missed it, back in October Piper and I visited Goodwill’s Milgard Work Opportunity Center and learned about all the amazing things they do. Goodwill is so much more than a thrift store.
Everything you need to know about shopping Goodwill's online store!

I invite you to learn all about Goodwill’s Milgard Center and hopefully share it with someone, located in Downtown Tacoma it is a school house that serves 9,800 unemployed with training/job placement programs. The center is also open to the public with a coffee shop and a bistro that serves lunch made by the culinary students. Just fyi the food is delicious!

I’m here to tell you a little secret, you may not know…..Goodwill has an online store!

That’s right, you can shop Goodwill from the comfort of your own home. Grab your phone, computer or tablet and start bidding!

How is https://www.shopgoodwill.com/ different then a physical store?

Most of those rare finds that people donate are scooped up and moved from the thrift store to their online business. Find everything from antiques, LEGOS by the lb, vintage toys, pop culture collectibles, Star Wars, higher end electronics, higher end decor and more. They’ve auctioned off a Michael Jackson jacket valued at $2 million; an original copy of the Declaration of Independence $477,650 at auction; Vince Lombardi’s West Point coaching sweater – $43,020; even a 360 year old painting which sold for $190,000.Everything you need to know about shopping Goodwill's online store!

When’s the best time to shop online?

Anytime is a good time ;) But they do receive a large number of donations at the end of the year and builds volume through March. But again, like shopping at a physical store you never know when you’ll find a treasure!

Support your local Goodwill.

Each participating Goodwill has a virtual “storefront” where their current auction items are listed ahead of the offers across the rest of the site. Tacoma and Seattle’s storefront can be found at www.shopgoodwill.com/goodwillwa and only receives revenue from the items they put on the site. Check out the site for one-cent shipping and an instant purchase price for an item(buy it now).
Everything you need to know about shopping Goodwill's online store!Tips for bidding. 

·Know what you are willing to bid as a maximum at that time (do the research on google, previous shopgoodwill.com auctions, other sites ahead / treasure hunting is 85% research, 15% action).
·Refresh your page in the final minutes frequently to get the action taking place.
·If you want to be the fastest bidder entering your maximum bid just ahead of the final 3 – 4 minutes knowing how many bidders you are really bidding against. (Maximum bid = $1 usually above the highest bid at the moment)… if you get a message you are outbid, then you know someone has topped your top bid and you need to make a decision whether to enter one last higher bid…
·If all the frenzy is too much then enter your maximum bid at 3 – 4 minutes and just let the automation work for you and either win or live to bid another day (your net will find more similar items down the road)

Don’t be afraid.

The site can be very easy to use; do a simple key word search, or set up your own personal shopper where you can add up to 10 words/items. Set up email notifications. If you don’t feel like bidding then look only for items that have a buy now option.

Another fun fact!! It’s tax time; did you know families/singles that make under $54,000 per year can receive free tax assistance and electronic filling?  The tax center, located at Goodwill’s Milgard Work Opportunity Center, 714 S. 27th Street in Tacoma, is one of 75 centers throughout western Washington serving singles and families making less than $54,000 per year. Goodwill, the IRS, the Pierce County Asset Building Coalition, and financial supporter KeyBank reopened the FREE Tacoma tax center on January 23 – hours of operation are Tuesday – Thursday, 3:30 – 7 p.m. Due to high demand reservations are necessary at Milgard (253.573.6832) and many other locations. Visit http://irs.treasury.gov/freetaxprep/ and type in your zip code for other nearby sites.


I’m off to browse ShopGoodwill and if you’re interested in my finds please go follow my Instagram, I love sharing my treasures! And please leave me a comment with any of your finds, it makes me so happy seeing the things people find and knowing we are all helping the environment!
