This new year I have resolved to seriously downsize. To get rid of things I do not need.
This morning I embarked out to ReStore, a local thrift store for Habitat for Humanity. They take big things. I have big things to get rid of. See below:
Two three feet high speakers (which Bill got from his days working as an electronics technician at the Today Show in New York city)
|Three foot high speakers (very heavy) from the Today Show|
A three foot by six foot office desk
|Oversize office desk, unassembled|
Berber carpet remnants removed from our media room
|Berber carpet remnants|
These are the first three items I have chosen to make an exit from our finished basement.
This morning I left with Bill to drive down to the ReStore facility in Lewes to make arrangements for the pickup. They don't want them. "Too big" they said. Thrift stores tend to be choosy these days, especially down here in Lower Slower Delaware with our aging population. We're either downsizing or dying thus creating a glut of "things" for the thrift stores to be choosey about. I understand most thrift stores have limited space and the thrift stores have to watch they're not being dumped upon with someone else's trash. I thought ReStore would take these items though because of their warehouse proportions. I thought wrong.
Back to the drawing board.
I placed an ad on the NextDoor app this morning offering these items for free. I've taken that route before and been successful. I now await calls. Hopefully I'll be successful in removing these items from our homey domicile.
