Lupus donation

Update, our neighbor across the road came and took the little blue desk with 4 drawers for her room... YEAH! Thanks Karen.

Today we donated alot of our stuff to a good cause ~ Lupus. I called the 800# and they came and got it all. Below are pictures of what happened. They were very quick and polite. They do this everyday all day I was told. Can you even imagine? Wow, there are alot of generous people in NJ.

As most of you may know, my husband lost his job in March. We were forced to look at how we live. I had actually had started to do that already. I feel we have to much , our house was cluttered with stuff and I wanted to live a more simple but fuller life. We had our yard sale and got rid of alot. Now Lupus came and we got rid of quite a bit. We are still working to get rid of things. One more sale at my moms this weekend and what is not sold will be held until Sept 27th when Lupus will be back.

This summer had been really hard on me, trying to have some fun with the kids and being able to eat, and pay our bills. It was a challenge. It's almost over I am sad to say. School starts Sept 1st for me the 2nd for the kids. It will be nice to have steady paycheck again. Now all we need is for Jeff to find a fabulous job.

Ariel view from upstairs of all the stuff we donated. Furniture, clothes, toys, stuffed animals, computers, sheets, Christmas trees. You name it we donated it.

The number to call for pick-up. Please call if you have stuff you no longer want or need. It will make you feel great!!

The truck in the driveway, getting loaded with all our stuff.

The stuff they did not take, not to much. They took almost everything. We still have 5 tubs of books, that needed to be in boxes. Next time. they will be back in the area in Sept. I am almost 100% sure we will have more stuff to give them.

The last of it being loaded, a clean driveway once more...........................

Our stuff inside the truck. When they first came in the morning there was not enough room in the truck they had. They had to dump the contents and come back for all our stuff. We made Lupus very happy.

Half full Lupus truck leaving our driveway............

It feels good to be rid of stuff no longer needed and recycled to help others. If you have alot of stuff or even a little you don't want anymore call Lupus. They will come and pick it up and leave you a form for your taxes. The drivers were courteous and it's for a great cause!!!!

Peace, love♥, and crochet...
