Foraging for an oversized chair

Loading up oversized chair at Goodwill Athens Ohio.

Anna was a little dubious when I told her I could fit this oversized chair in the car.

The Goodwill people are very nice and let us determine if it could fit in the trunk before we bought it.

Maybe you want to look for a used trailer? I have one with my little 2-door Focus & have done amazing things with it. I call it my truck! (thoughI also took the back seat out of the Focus for an extra boost of hauling space . . .)

They're hard to find used but worth their weight in gold if you find one. The hitch is a few hundred, but cheaper than a truck!

I stopped buying at Goodwill when I found out that their CEO makes six figures and pays their mentally disabled workers peanuts. Having worked for my state's Intellectual Disabilities department, I was appalled at learning that. I'm not even fond of Salvation Army because of some of their discrimination policies. Now I only support local thrift stores instead that help the homeless and veterans.
