Last week we told you we came across stellar finds at the new Paramus Goodwill, and we weren’t just joshin’. To give you a sneak peek beyond the water toys, we’ll be splitting our treasure-hunt into four categories:

Man

This beautiful brand-new grill has just been sold earlier that week for $199. You see, we're serious when we tell you to RUN, DON'T WALK to your nearest Goodwill!

Woman

For $2.99 a pop, you could have a triple-feature chick flick for less than the cost of a movie theater ticket!

Youngin's can get their kicks with these adorable new & like-new sneakers, starting at $4.99 a pair.

Eternal Child

We found Guitar Hero for Playstation 2 for just $39.99. Rock on, Paramus!

Goodwill and BurdaStyle: Boutique You

It’s hot (really hot), and we only have so many outfits we’re willing to wear in this heat.

But how can we still rock our personal style with such (relatively) limited options? Why, with Embroidery Knot Stitch, this week’s Boutique You, that’s how!

Embroidery allows you to personalize your Goodwill staples while staying cool - and we ❤ that.
