I'm still finding things around the house that we don't really want. Lucky for me, I joined Freecycle. They have groups all over the nation so I'm sure if you're interested, you can find one in your neighborhood. Here's how it works (at least our Lincoln group):
1. You post an email with the things you want to give away.
2. In minutes (depending on how good your stuff is), people start responding with offers to come and pick it up.
3. You choose which person you want to receive your items and arrange for them to pick it up.
4. Your stuff is miraculously GONE!
In the past few days I have gifted a computer desk, a dresser, a box of old books, and a laundry hamper. All were spoken for within minutes of posting. It's awesome.
I told Carl about the site but I'm not going to let him join because I have great fears that he will go and pick up almost anything that is offered, whether we need it or not. He is finally admitting he has a problem but he's just not quite ready to do anything about it yet. We did have some minor victories--I was able to throw out old tithing settlement sheets from 1999 and a lease to a house we lived in a couple of years ago.
