So, I'm a housie and I love Thrift Stores. The one down the street is closing:( and is offering steep discounts:). Somebody else in the house noticed how thrilled I am about thrift store scores and shared this video with me. I get so jazzed about finding something nice for cheap. I'll even get in a thrift store's dumpster if I can.

I can't recall a Goodwill in the PNW that doesn't use a compactor or a rolloff with a locking lid.

I remember seeing a rolloff destined for the recycler at a Goodwill distribution center in Washington. A steel corner was peeled away, when I looked inside I saw small appliances all with their cords snipped off (but it was done by Badwill). Seems when they have too much on their shelves, they destroy and scrap the goods which were donated by well intending folk instead of dropping the price or donating the items.

Oh, fuck you Goodwill, I remember when you weren't so wasteful.

Instead of being part of the solution, you have become part of the problem.


On topic: thrift stores and the scores within are the best.

Here's to the stores which still let you volunteer in exchange for some clothes, a hat & gloves, sleeping bag or whatever.

(You mom and pops rock!)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
