Goodwill has been accepting donations all through the shut down. It was the store itself that has been closed. Ours opened a few of their locations and I grabbed my son to get there promptly as he is still furnishing his house. We did about a hundred bucks in 'damage' as he got a really nice side table, bedside table for the guest room, night light for the bedside table, several paintings, a couple of chairs and some nice kitchen equipment. The knowledge that folks were using this time to clear out 'things' to Goodwill got us there before stuff got too banged around by customers. I was astonished that almost half a long shelf was devoted to toaster ovens packed two high.
SEL, thank you! The food bank here receives donations from many sources: grocery stores mainly, Scouts, individuals...they are over capacity. The section I worked in this morning, I had to give away an excess for each individual.
I had no olives or olive juice for my dirty martini. I improvised and used caper brine. It turned out really good! I will need to find a use for my capers now.
I start my new position with Amazon the day after Memorial Day.
I've had mixed comfort results with Ikea products. I could sit on some of their couches for hours. Others, not so much.
Edited to add: While my son selected his stuff at IKEA, we went home and ordered on line for delivery. The delivery for several night tables, 4 sets of bookshelves, a sofa, a love seat, a chair and a bunch of other stuff was $149 total--the same as a delivery fee for just 1 bookshelf set. Gift cards for online use were purchased from Raise with about a 10% discount to pay on line for the order, and that more than covered the delivery cost.
Kathy, you used a mask you got from some internet person? I'm sure it's fine, but that's taking a lot of risk.
