Have you been to a Goodwill store lately? That stuff ain’t cheap!

And a TikTokker named Essie has had enough of it!

She posted a video on the social media platform and sounded off about how expensive the items have become at Goodwill stores.

Essie asked viewers, “Can anybody tell me what has happened to Goodwill?”

She said that the Goodwill store she goes to doesn’t have fitting rooms or mirrors so people have to buy clothes as is.

Essie asked, “Why would I spend $15 on a pair of used pants that I can’t even try on?”

She went on to complain about t-shirts being $6 at the store when she used to buy tank tops there for only 99 cents.

Essie also complained about the prices of housewares and plants.

About one particular item, she said, “You can go to Bed Bath & Beyond and get a brand new luxury towel for $8 or you can get an old one for $6 that I’m sure has been used by like a family of seven,” referring to a towel.

Essie ended her video and said, “It’s literally cheaper to go to Walmart.”

Another person points out that they donated Levi jeans… and Goodwill is charging people the ACTUAL price he bought them for.
