Bring Good Home with this mom’s school supplies for kids

There isn’t much mother of two Megan doesn’t buy for her family at Goodwill for back to school.

She’s a big thrifter and believes in shopping Goodwill first for clothing and other back-to-school supplies like a planner and calendar for herself and calculator, rules, pencil case, flash cards and more for her two girls.

“I’m always thinking ahead and if I find something we’ll need, I grab it,”

As a former teacher, she has an endless supply of books that she once used in her classroom that have joined the others at her home. She also has other fun entertainment options like DVDs and a popcorn popper for family movie night — all finds from Goodwill.
