Pay it forward

My husband found these Nike runners, new in the box, by the recycling bin on our level of our apartment building. They were my size, which was convenient. However I wore them about a dozen times but they just weren’t comfortable for me. I could sell them secondhand for a good profit on Facebook Marketplace but decided to pay them forward and sent them to the thrift shop where the proceeds will go to charity. It is always easier for me to let go of items that were cheap of free in the first place. And especially when they didn’t suit me.

  1. I am like you. I was given a new pair of Sketchers that someone bought and They didn’t fit. Well they didn’t fit me either. So off they went to the thrift shop.

  2. I just got rid of a bicycle – for anyone else, excellent condition and rather expensive, but for me, weighed down with bad juju. I put it in our complex’s informal swap area with a ‘Free to a good home’ sign – gone within an hour! I bet someone thought it was Christmas So, a massive weight gone for me, and somebody can be all excited and get good use out of it

  3. Paying it forward, what a kindness to unknown people!
    Stay kind!
