Choices, choices, choices!…..eBay, Craig’s List, Donation Dumpsters, Purple Heart, Salvation Army, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Vets, Good Will….The options to unload are bountiful. I researched on the internet who took what, when and where. It is overwhelming!  The truth is it doesn’t matter to who or where the stuff ends up.  It just has to GO without expectation or attachment, and the sooner it departs the better.

So today I called the closest place to my home, Family Thrift Shoppes. I talked to the sweetest woman with sore old feet just like me.  She too has stuff that she just doesn’t use anymore.  She too wonders why the heck she ever bought stuff in the first place.  She too had out lived her exercise equipment.  She made me feel good about letting go of my stuff.  She said they sell stuff so cheap that someone would buy it. She said they take everything but large appliances and ratty upholstered furniture! So I packed up the Yukon and dropped my first load off.  Easy!

Next trip….the Nordic Track Skier.

  1. Congrats! We, too, had a Nordic Trak, that Woody used regularly. When we moved, we couldn’t pay someone to take it! Well, actually we DID have to pay them to take it – 1-800-GOT-JUNK. The truck of last resort.
