Rise and Shine August 8 – My Goodwill GAP finds, Regal Summer movies, AncestryDNA, Hanes sale, Costco membership sale, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning!  How are you today? Yesterday I stopped into Goodwill and found some great back-to-school clothes! I scored a brand new GAP dress for my daughter for $5.99 (still had tags on it!), a United Colors of Benetton dress for $1.99, GAP fitted top for $2.99 and more. I just love shopping thrift stores this time of year – you never know what you’ll find! Have you found any good secondhand deals lately? Leave a comment and let me know!
