3 Ways Goodwill Can Keep You Warm This Winter

Winter is one of the best times of the year to shop at Ohio Valley Goodwill. Why? Because it’s the time of year when you can be the most cost-effective with your shopping!

Let’s face it: it can be expensive to bundle up for the winter months. Wool sweaters and lots of layers add up quickly. But when you thrift shop at Goodwill, you can stay warm for just a fraction of the cost.

Here are some of our best ways Goodwill can keep you cozy when the temperatures drop!

#1: Layer up!

Wearing several layers of clothing traps warm air and keeps your body warm. But there’s no need to spend a bundle on brand-new items from traditional retail stores. Ohio Valley Goodwill is the best place to stock up on classic layering items like t-shirts, long sleeve tees, vests, scarves, and jackets for less. You can also find a variety of sweaters and sweatshirts in every style and color imaginable. The best part about the layering technique is that it’s easy to shed a layer or two if you get too warm!

#2: Blankets perfect for snuggles

This one is a pro-tip! You can find low-cost throw blankets, duvets, even linens at incredible prices at your local Goodwill store. Be sure to look for warm fabrics, like wool. Similar blankets can cost more than $100 at full retail price, but not at Goodwill! You can repurpose throw blankets as home décor, too. Toss one in a basket on the floor, fold it over a loveseat or chair, or lay it under a table like a rug for a trendy look.

#3: Winter Coats and Accessories

Find your winter coat at Goodwill and stay warm while saving money! Ohio Valley Goodwill carries all sorts of coats and jackets for both adults and kids. You could grab a coat for every occasion, whether it’s office wear, casual, or dressy. And don’t forget about coats for kids! Thrifting your little one’s coats can be a lifesaver for your budget, especially when you consider that kids tend to grow out of theirs every year. Once you find the perfect coat, be sure to accessorize with hats, gloves, and scarves found at Goodwill!
