Seeking Sunshine? Let Goodwill Help Pack Your Spring Break Bags!

Spring break is right around the corner, and warm weather is calling. Let’s talk about what you’re going to pack for your trip to the sun and sand!

Shop Smarter for Spring Break

After swimming in sweaters and all the layers this winter, it’s tempting to snap up every colorful tank top, swimsuit, and pair of sunnies you see. And retailers know it! This time of year, you’ll see their displays transformed into a spring break mecca — don’t fall for it! You can find the same spring break must-haves at better prices when you shop at a Goodwill thrift store.

With the money you save at Goodwill, you’ll have more to spend on experiences and souvenirs to make the most of your trip (or treat yourself during a staycation!)

Create Your Own Spring Break Style

One of the many perks of thrifting at Goodwill for spring break outfits and accessories is that you won’t look like everyone else on the beach. Instead of shopping the same few items on display at large retailers, you’ll have unique pieces you handpicked for the vacation of a lifetime!

Plus, at Goodwill, you’ll have your pick of high-end brands that will last many summers instead of splurging on fast fashions that struggle to survive a single season.

Make Your List and Pack Up

You’ll want to get started shopping for spring break early, because you never know what you’ll find at Goodwill. The more you go, the more treasures you’ll discover!

Take inventory of what items you already have on hand, then make a note of what you’ll need for your trip. While shorts and a top are the general go-to on spring break, don’t forget that summer sundresses are a great choice because they’re comfortable and versatile.

You can dress them up for an evening on the town, and wear them over your swimsuit for a day at the beach. Plus you can easily pop them on and off to take a dip in the water!

Don’t forget accessories such as sunglasses, hats, and sandals. And while you’re shopping at Goodwill, take a look at the books. You’ll want something to read while you relax, and there’s no reason to pay full retail prices!

Now that you know what you need to make the most of your spring break, find your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill thrift store, and start saving. When you thrift for spring break fashions, you’ll have more money left over to spend on fun!
