Simple Pleasure of the Day: Donating

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" posts
After my annual stuff purges, I donate the still useable contents to a thrift store.  My SPOTD for today is donating these items because they could be useful to somebody else and not just wasted by being thrown away.

Things I've been meaning to also donate are:

- Non-perishable foods.  The Post Office does food drives sometimes by picking up specific bags placed near the mailboxes to take them away for you, but I haven't done this in a while.  Mostly because of being more poor recently than usual so there's nothing to donate haha.

- Furniture.  I have some extra foldable shelves from my grandparents that I do not use, but when it comes to "donating" these, I plan to give these to my parents so they can stay in the family.

- My time.  When I moved to my new place, I thought since I'd be more "lonely" than usual (being farther away from friends mostly) that I'd do some volunteering occasionally to meet new people and do some good while I'm at it.  That hasn't happened yet haha.
