Sweater weather is here! Of course, I headed to Goodwill to update my wardrobe. They have so many different options when it comes to sweaters, including big cozy ones to wear on a lazy day. They also have the types of sweaters that you can dress up with your favorite pair of jeans or leggings, which will make it look like you "tried" when really you're just about that #comfylife like I am, lol.

Goodwill also has a variety of jackets for this season — when you want something that'll keep you warm but you don't want a full winter coat. As you can see, I paired a jean jacket with one of the sweaters. Personally, I have a jacket obsession because they are so versatile and can work with so many different outfits.

You can always throw in a scarf for added warmth, too.

I always head toward the seasonal decor, too. As someone who loves to decorate for fall and Christmas, Goodwill is a great place to start to find home decor at lower prices compared to lots of other stores in town. The seasonal kitchen towels I'm looking at were only $2-4 compared to the $10+ at some other places.

I even found a "Christine-sized" Christmas tree that's prelit! It's the perfect size for my apartment and not to mention, all the ornaments Goodwill has to spruce up any tree.​

This is the time of year where people are spending more money so instead of spending it all at the mall or big box stores, Goodwill is a good place to start because you never know what treasures you can find — and at a much more reasonable price.
