I Did It! I Have a Place to Park a Car!


After three months of steady work, I have a place to park a car in the garage!

I made 8-10 trips to Marion County Recycling Center.  Each trip home my car looked like this:

One Empty Trunk

Today, a friend helped me by taking a load of broken furniture and junk to the Marion County Dump. I really appreciate the empty space.


After my friend left, I loaded up some old metal barn door pieces from the back yard and went to Cherry City Metals in Salem. I made $3.40 on my load. The process of dropping the metal off was pretty easy.  Recycling metal for money is new to me; it’s good to try new things.

 I’m trying to figure out how to recycle VCR Tapes, CD’s, Cassette Tapes, and books.  I’ve dropped off a load to Good will, but I have more to go. I can’t seem to figure out why I found like 20 pillows in all kinds of weird places in the garage.  They all have to go, too.

This has been a 15 year goal for me, and it’s sweet, so sweet, to have this garage space.

 Happy Friday!
