Now may be a good time to find deals on unique items and help out a charity at the same time.

You might find games, rare collectibles, or vintage Barbie dolls on Goodwill's website. You can shop at the thrift store's locations hundreds of miles away and never set foot outside.

"Most of our items start at $9.99 and from there customers can bid and bid and bid until as high as they want to go. The bidding usually last for 5 to 7 days," said Jessica Hudgins, a spokesperson for Goodwill.

When you buy something, the money goes to the community it came from.

Right now might be the best time to start bidding. A lot of people make end-of-year donations for tax write-offs and to clean house.
