It is back-to-school time so it's time for some back-to-school tips! Melissa McGinnis is with Sasha, the Marketing Director for Goodwill Southern California.

So why should you shop at the Goodwill other than recycling your clothes?

Definitely, being green is a great reason to come into Goodwill stores. Sasha says that savvy shoppers and smart moms come into Goodwill because they have an incredible variety of children's clothing and what we find is because kids are growing up so fast, they grow out of their clothes, which are still in perfect conditions. So moms are bringing in great items of clothing and Goodwill definitely encourage moms to shop with them because they can pick up stuff like designer jeans and cute tops.

One of the trends that Goodwill is seeing now is that moms are picking up jeans for their kids and also for their birthday parties. You can get jeans for a couple of dollars, and you can jewel them and handpaint them. The kids customize their own jeans, they bedazzle them. They've got cute really good jeans for going back to school.

Melissa has always gone to Goodwill for some back-to-school shopping. I think that's some great tips whether it's for fun or some really serious shopping. Go to the Goodwill, you'll never know what treasure you're going to find. It will be always worth your time.
