Can one just call the phone company to see if they have discards
they could donate? Or does one have to know someone?
I, too, sent a letter home to parents... but I didn't count
on all the time I spend sorting through bags of stuff (some of it not
washed out very well. ick) and finding places to stash it in some
kind of order. I also got yarn and fabric... but the yarn was snarled
beyond redemption, and the fabric was musty and wrinkled and
usually still sewn into a garment ~ so that means washing and
ripping, etc... some things I think I'd rather just buy!
I've managed to collect a number of metal OJ tops, any ideas on
what to use them for?
Thanks for suggestions!
