Cleaning the Garage

Today was the day we had to get the garage cleaned.  It is getting colder and colder outside, and soon the snow will be flying.  We had left over garage sale items and other stuff that we have gathered.  Where does it all come from?  Who knows, but it is time to get it out of the garage so we can put our vehicles inside.

We headed to The St. Vincent de Paul store in Fond du lac, Wisconsin.

They were open until 3:30 today and it was noon already.   We quickly loaded up the car, and packed it with all kinds of junk and I mean JUNK.  It looked like a hoarders car.

When we got there, we pulled to the back of the building.  It was amazing.  The doors opened and out came three young men.  They started unloading and within minutes the car was empty.  I didn't realize how many things they would not take, but I understand why.  They took everything we had including a high chair which I saw on the list as we were leaving.  It was so easy and fast.

I have to admit, we drove around the building and went inside for just a moment.  I was very careful not to load up the car again.  In fact, we only bought a couple things.  We bought some stitch holders for knitting and 4 yards of netting to make more scrubbies.

Now the garage is clean except for 5 or 6 tons of wood pellets, and we are able to get the car and the truck inside before we get some snow.  It's a good feeling.
