Today’s charity pile

My family likes to keep some running bins of stuff to give to charity, so about 2-3 times a year we request a truck to swing by and pick it up. Before donating, I always go through the piles to make sure none of our “keepers” got mixed in, as well as to pair up socks and generally organize things. I also do this so if the IRS comes asking how we gave $3,000 in goods away (a normal year), I have photos of everything laid out on the ground.

It’s also a time to reminisce as a parent over all the clothes your kids have outgrown, so it’s bittersweet.


Especially when you find this gem (from Hungary):
