First actual donation after weeks of constant donating!

I have been donating one item each and every day for about six weeks now and the time has come to go and get my first actual "donation" done.

The more stuff I would accumulate to be donated, the harder it would become for me to get the stuff to the local charity shop, because I do not have the luxury of a car at the moment.

In the picture below you can see the stuff I had together roughly a week before I got rid of it.

As you can see it's quite a variety of items. From books over decoration to clothes to blankets...

A bit of everything.

Up until I went to donate the stuff I put a fair few more or less bulky items on the pile such as two bodyboards and a poolnoodle haha.

See the picture below!

 As you can see I tried to pack the stuff as compact as I possibly could since I was going to bring it to the charity shop with my pushbike.

Yes you can transport that on a pushbike ... and much more!

I ended up holding the black bag in my left hand and the two bodyboards tucked under my left arm too. but there was the poolnoodle still...

well, I ended up having to stick the poolnoodle in my enormous backpack you see right there.

No, I did not take any picture of that. not sure if I didn't take any because I was annoyed or embarrassed.

And No I did not give away my amazing rucksack. If you know me, then you know that you will hardly see me without it....
I love that bag!

So, the last picture is after I eventually arrived at the charity shop  after I more or less successfully crossed the highway - twice...
...people who saw me probably enjoyed it more than I did, at least at the time.
The charity shop was closed by the time I got there, but luckily I was able to donate my stuff anyway.


I was drenched in sweat when I was finished, but it has been well worth the work and effort, and of course I continue to put away an item each day and look forward to my next trip to the charity shop.

That's it for now, I hope you enjoyed the read, stay tuned for more to come and make sure to subscribe.
