New Year, New Hobbies


It’s a new year, which means it’s a time for reflection and planning. If you’re thinking about picking up a new hobby, chances are you’ll find some inspiration at your nearest Goodwill store. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Hiking
If you want to start hiking, check Goodwill for the right equipment. The right hiking shoes are important so you can protect your ankles and knees. Look for brands like Soloman, Merrell, and Lowa. Keep your eye out for hiking poles and other equipment. A lightweight backpack is great for carrying water bottles and snacks. You might also find a carrier backpack for carrying young kids on your hike.

Weight Lifting
A home gym is a convenient way to exercise. If you’re looking for exercise equipment, check Goodwill first. Anything from larger exercise machines to hand weights and bands, you never know what you’ll find. Exercise gloves are also nice to have to protect your hands from the weights.

Kids’ Sports
Kiddos ready for a new hobby too? You might find soccer goals and balls or hockey sticks and masks. Head to Goodwill for some inspiration for a new hobby for the kids to play. The great thing about spending less on sports equipment is that you won’t feel frustrated when they quickly move onto the next thing.

Painting
Many Goodwill stores have an extensive artwork selection. The best way to start painting for less is to buy a canvas from Goodwill. Paint over it with a primer and you have a blank canvas that doesn’t cost a lot. The great thing about buying canvas art from Goodwill is that you can find a variety of sizes without having to buy a whole set.

Carpentry
Looking to take on home improvement projects this year? You might find the tools you need at your nearest Goodwill store. Tools like drills, screwdrivers, and hammers can be expensive when you add it all up. Buying them from Goodwill is way less expensive. You can also find used furniture that you can sand and paint to furnish your home. Who knows, you might even find a tool belt.  

Are you ready to discover a new hobby? Goodwill stores are known for their sizable selections, unique goods, fun finds, and of course our low prices!
