There's a perk in my new neighborhood - a really nice Goodwill store. Even though I got rid of a lot of stuff - and even though I'm trying to control my consumption - I still felt like I needed a little something new for my new place. I found a cute teal vase and a really cool architectural remnant. $1.50 total! This is the way to spend money and not feel guilty. Then if you tire of the items, you can just donate them back. It's the ultimate in recycling.
