Before I became a mom, I would venture off to the children’s book section at Goodwill to buy books for my niece and nephew. Now that I have a little one of my own, I’ve been slowly building the nursery library with books from Goodwill. Besides the fact that books are incredibly affordable at 50 cents to $1 per book, I love the process of finding books at Goodwill.
From classics like Dr. Seuss to present-day characters like Peppa Pig, I enjoy the thrill of thrill of the hunt. For this month’s 12 Months of Thrifting prompt, we encourage you to head to your local Goodwill to thrift books for your children.
If your child is old enough, have them pick out their own book for summer reading. It’s a great way to build a home library that you can pass down to future children, relatives, or friends.
