My church has this cool website called "The City". It's a place where members and guests can connect, pray for one another, and post information on other needs. A woman needed help with transporting a couch to her home she wanted to purchase on craigslist. By the time someone was able to help her, the couch had been sold. The person who was willing to help told the poster to check the "free" section on craigslist because she may be able to find something else that suits her needs. I went to the free section to check it out for myself. OMG!!! People need to learn when something is trash. Here are a few things that can definitely be tossed in the garbage:
*Oversized Dunkin Donut Container*
"This is beyond garbage."
"Seriously??? And send those shoes to Haiti. They are the most usable items in this junk pile."
*TV, 57" Hitachi, needs repair*
"A smart person would put money into purchasing a new television instead of paying to have this trash fixed."
*Vintage floor buffer*
"Vintage? More like ancient."
"Face in my hands and shaking my head. This is nasty."
These are just a few items that were listed. There was a looooong list of junk. Who would want this? There is charity and then there is giving away crap because you know it's crap. I would never think of giving any of these items away. Why would someone want to drink out of a container with my germs? Why would someone want my old, dirty, and broken (and possibly smelly) couch? New Christmas lights costs $5.00 at Walmart. A smart person waits for the day after Christmas to purchase next years lights on sale for $3.00. Ok, I'm finished ranting. . . for now.
