Today The Salvation Army came to pick up a pile of stuff that we started to make when we were cleaning. It still amazes me how much stuff we have accumulated in just two years of living in our house. We moved the car out of the garage and started a pile in the middle of it. It started with bags of old clothes from the kids and us. The pile grew... accumulating used books, a small dresser and some lamps that are no longer used. The pile ended up with all sorts of odds and ends that we knew we would not use and did not want to pack. By the time we finished the entire middle area of the garage was full of items to donate.

I called the Salvation Army yesterday and they came by today with their truck and an inmate helper. Once they had the truck backed up, they loaded everything up very quickly and were not picky at all about what they took. What a great service!
