Goodwill Score: Bodum French Press Coffee Maker
When I was in college I took out the whole federal student loan that was offered to me. In hindsight I wish I had picked up a few more shifts. The purchases I “needed” are being paid for now and accumulating 6.8% interest.
In my long-ago post my students and I calculated how much a cup of coffee purchased our freshman year of college would cost when we were paying back our student loans. The result was nearly double the original cost.
Definitely go check out the post, as it was very enlightening. That was what encouraged me to cut up my one and only $500-limit credit card. I just couldn’t bear the thought of interest anymore.

I love the idea of a French press but couldn’t justify the purchase because I already have a drip machine.
The last time I was at Goodwill I found the exact. same. one. from the blog post! It was only $5 so I snapped it up!
I also bought 12 ft of grapevine that I will use for wedding decor.
What are your recent Goodwill/Thrift scores?
