Say Hello to Summer

Summertime in Central Texas is all about summer clothes, backyard fun, and BBQs with friends and family. It’s time to set those summertime vibes: Find summer sandals, shorts, and swimwear at the usual Goodwill value. We’ve also got all the lawn and garden accessories to make your BBQs the best in town. Plus, don’t forget to prep for the Fourth of July with our deals on patriotic merchandise.

Whichever way you’d like to spend this summer—in the backyard, in the pool, or out around town—Goodwill has everything you need to greet the summer. If you’d like to stay inside and avoid the heat, here are a few suggested crafting projects you can consider tackling.

Read ahead for our summer essentials checklist and then head to your nearest Goodwill.

Set the Summertime Vibes with Fresh Styles

The first step to a great summer is a well-stocked closet. And with deals more important than ever, Goodwill can provide everything you need to stock your summer wardrobe at prices you’ll love. Browse women’s sundresses, athleisure, and sandals, as well as men’s denim, Polos, and tees. And find flip-flops, sports slides, and water shoes for the whole family!

Make a Splash in New Swimwear

Don’t let shopping for swimwear dampen your summer shopping experience! Goodwill makes it easy with affordable options including women’s mix-and-match tops and bottoms, as well as men’s swim trunks. With these prices, you have the option to try multiple swimsuits—and that will make you the best dressed at the pool this summer!

Prepare the Backyard for BBQ Season

Now let’s set the stage in the backyard for BBQ season! First, prepare the backyard for guests with colorful garden pinwheels, decorative lanterns, and tiki torches. Grab BBQ fork sets, ice cube trays, and salsa bowls to complement the grill. Then consider a disc golf set or a ring toss game for entertainment. Finally, consider a pet booster seat and a dog pool to entertain the furry members of the family.

Pick a Pile of Books for the Hammock

Book shopping on a budget this summer? It can be difficult to do, particularly for avid readers. Well, Goodwill has you covered there, too! Take a look at some of the titles we’ve got on display and gather a stack of books to sit beside the hammock. Ranging widely in genre and publication date, our selection is sure to expand your summer reading list.
