Work or Learn from Home
Have you caught yourself using your living room couch to try and work from home? Are your kids trying to do their classroom learning from the kitchen table?
Use your couch for a Netflix binge and your kitchen table for meals again by creating a work from home setup with items from Goodwill!
Here are a variety of items found at the Goodwill Camp Bowie Store to help make a better workspace for just a few dollars.
Desks aren’t made like these anymore. This brown two drawer office desk priced at $30.49, is a great large space with two main drawers to fit all the paperwork and file folders. Similar single pedestal home office desks start at $300 online.
Although no office chairs were available when we shopped, the accent chair priced at $25.49 (selling for $279.99 at Haverty’s), makes a comfier addition to the area and beats taking the one from the kitchen.
There are lots of office products and organizational items as well! The two-tier side load desk tray is priced at $1.99 (sells online for $5.99). The black vertical file folder and attached supply organizer is priced at $2.49 (selling online for $14.99). Put your paperwork and books in place to keep them from creeping into your living space.
Forgot your supplies in the office? There are even staplers, hole punchers, and a 10 pack of paperclips priced at $1.99 each!
The store also has a row of Binders, bundled (2), and priced at .99 cents (2” binder with inserts are originally $4.29 each at Staples)!
An office space is not complete without a lamp and a clock. This Underwriters Laboratories brass desk lamp resells for $30 online. At Goodwill, it is priced at just $8.99.
To not lose track of time, this matte black clock by Arbor & Emery that sells for $15.00 at Target is priced at $3.99.
More frequent mug use for your morning coffee? This black matte mug by Kane Home Stoneware is only .89 cents (selling online for $3.99). There are even four packs of mugs available at select stores for .89 cents while supplies last!
Goodwill has plenty of children’s items too! The markers, calculator, index cards, and scissors are bundled in a bag for $1.99 (compared to an average of each item selling for $1.00). The large erasable math board is $1.99 (originally $9.99 per board) and the children’s book was just .49 cents (selling for $5.59 on Thriftbooks.com)! The Teddy Bear Bag is $5.00 (reselling for $20.00 on Poshmark).
