My family wanted to see just how frugal and green we could be with back-to-school clothing basics. So, we headed to one of the nation’s largest Goodwill stores, in Cookeville, Tennessee. The nonprofit resale outlet rivals a typical mega-discount store in square footage. We found a brightly lit store with spacious, long aisles of neatly hung clothing organized by size and color.

Because Goodwill stores often have discount days when certain colors of pricetags are 50% off or even .99-cents per item, we could have theoretically cut our wardrobe cost from around $30 to $15. Pretty amazing, considering you can easily spend more than that on just one pair of children’s jeans at retail.
