daveybot's photo of a BIG chair
Big furniture, small car. We really didn't set out to do The Spring Cure. But this past weekend we suddenly found ourselves in the midst of some Curing of our own. It ended up with our deciding to move out a dresser and chair that weren't working for us. And just when we were getting frustrated by the number of potential Craigslist buyers flaking out, and trying to figure out how we were going to get the pieces to the thrift store since they wouldn't fit in our car, buyers actually showed up and took them away. If they hadn't, we would have tried out The Salvation Army's donation website.
It's so easy. Just fill in an online form with information about the items you have to donate, your address and phone number, and when you'd like them picked up. Although they can't guarantee an exact time of pickup, our friend who's used it twice says that both times the goods were gone by the time she got home from work. Receipts are left at the residence, and are also available online.
The website is here.
