Since that time I have made numerous trips to Goodwill, sometimes going twice a week. I have moved past being the woman that was insecure about shopping at Goodwill. This store isn't particularly large, but I am always surprised by the interesting things that I find there. I have gotten to the point that I can browse through the racks and immediately see the things that pique my interest.
In spite of my comfort level with Goodwill, I still leave the blue bins alone. Of course any good thrifter knows that the golden ticket just might be found in the blue bins. So why do I avoid them? For me, it's personal. I just don't want to dig through and touch all of that stuff trying to find the great deal. It's a growth process, I think. I am not a germaphobe or anything, but I am really particular sometimes about what I want to touch. I will dig in dirt, pick up worms and do all kinds of other stuff. But for some reason, digging through those blue bins just doesn't make the cut. I'm sure that it's mind over matter. But unless I experience a major change of heart, the blue bins are off limits.
Am I alone in this? Does anybody else consider the blue bins to be off limits for similar reasons? When you are thrifting, do you find that they are some things that you just don't want to touch? Let me know in the comments.
