When I grow up

It’s official!  I have finally have a goal I really want to achieve.  When I grow up I want to be a five year old!  Lol!  Okay…  so I really don’t want to be five again – but the latest trend has me over the moon and thinking like a child.  What is it that has me so giddy?  COLORING BOOKS!    As an adult, I don’t think I’ve ever lost my interest in coloring…  but there is something about coloring Barney or Clifford that just didn’t appeal to me, so often time I would make my own coloring page using clip art.  Now I don’t have to.  Coloring books are everywhere!  Including your local Goodwill store.  We picked these up at the Burton store Grand opening along with colored pencils for $1.50 each – which is an amazing bargain!  Ones on Amazon  and Barnes & Noble were selling from $5-$12 and the colored pencils were equally as pricy.  So…  to say we love the ones at Goodwill for $1.50 is an understatement!

There are huge benefits to coloring.  It’s relaxing, a great way to reduce stress and just all around fun.  It’s  a cheap way of tuning out.  And more importantly?  It’s something you can do with your kids! Who doesn’t love quality family time…  and even without the kiddos – it’s a nice mindless way to put an end to your day.  When you’re coloring, the most important decision you have to make is what color to use.  Ha!  That’s the kind of decision making I’m up for at the end of a long day. 


While the supply of coloring books might be low right now – Goodwill does expect to replenish that supply in about two weeks.  So keep your eyes peeled for the lasted editions of adult coloring books at the store.
