Looking to get in shape on a budget? That’s me! I’m not up for spending a lot of money on exercise equipment, over-priced ($145) home fitness DVD’s, or a gym membership. So, what’s a frugal girl to do? Go to Goodwill!
The cheapest form of exercise is walking. All you need is a good pair of shoes. I found these NEW Fila Sculpt-N-Tone fitness shoes for $5.00. Retail price $60.00. That’s a savings of over 90% off retail.
DVD’s and video games are 2 for $5.00 at my local Goodwill store. I managed to find these workouts by uber-trainer Jillian Michaels. The Wii Fitness Ultimatum is NEW in the package. On Amazon, the Wii game is currently selling for $6.49 and the DVD is $7.69. I saved about 65% off retail.
These Leslie Sansone Walk Away The Pounds Express DVD’s are selling for $9.88 and $11.08 on Amazon. I saved over 75% off retail by getting the pair for $5.00 at Goodwill.
If you still have a VCR, you can save even more by choosing video tapes which are priced at 2 for $1.25.
I’ve seen free weights, jump ropes, mats, and stability balls all at Goodwill.
Don’t forget about all the fitness clothing too – t-shirts, tanks, sweat suits, and my favorite…..yoga pants.
Have you purchased anything to help you meet your health and fitness goals at Goodwill?
