Tackle Your 2022 Resolutions for Less with Goodwill!

When the ball drops at midnight, millions of people hold on to visions of a fresh start for themselves in the New Year. Have you ever thought about using Goodwill to help you make your resolutions come true? It’s simple, and we’ve done the hard work for you!

Here’s a list of some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, and how shopping at Goodwill can help you reach your goals:

By far, the most common New Year’s resolution is to get healthy. With the right tools, you can build excitement for a new exercise routine and stay motivated to keep moving.

Ohio Valley Goodwill has exercise equipment and workout clothes to ensure you look and feel comfortable at the gym or at home. You’re bound to find some gently used and like-new athletic wear, maybe even some with the tags still attached!

Get organized

The chaos of the holiday season is sure to make you want to start the New Year fresh and organized. Once you’ve completed your post-holiday purge, head to Ohio Valley Goodwill to find everything you’ll need to get organized. Baskets, plastic containers, and shelving are always affordable at Goodwill, helping you feel organized without overspending!


Spend less, save more

The holidays can also be draining on your bank account, which is why so many people vow to be smarter with their spending in the New Year. Goodwill is the perfect place to stick to your 2022 budget!

Thrifting is a great way to save money on items that in some cases may cost at least twice as much in a traditional retail store. Choosing to shop at Goodwill for clothing, household items, gifts, and more can help you save big in 2022!

Live more sustainably

Another great New Year’s resolution is to look for ways to decrease your environmental footprint. Can you believe that the average American creates more than 4 pounds of trash each day? Making up a large chunk of that trash is clothing — and North Americans throw away 81 pounds of textiles each year per person!

The good news is that it’s simple to cut back on this waste with help from Goodwill. First, donate the clothing, accessories, and household items you no longer want to Goodwill instead of throwing them out. Second, instead of buying new items, thrift them! Shopping at Goodwill gives new life to items that could have otherwise ended up in a landfill. As an added bonus, many of the vintage items you’ll find are of higher quality than many of the things found in stores today. Plus, they’re unique!

Learn something new
