Oh No! Goodwill is Moving!

No sooner do I return from my long vacation in France and my short vacation in Massachusetts than I learn the news: Goodwill is moving! To the building formerly occupied by Circuit City. It will no longer be one mile from my house (with Big Lots, a grocery store, Dollar Tree, and Walgreens), but about five miles away, near (UGH) Walmart. Just far enough not to go very often. Bliss must come from elsewhere, I guess.

To add insult to injury: I stopped in to scope things out and the selections were atrocious. It turns out that they are picking out all the best stuff for the new store, slated to open in September.

Karmically, this is a good thing. I have plenty to wear. I don't need anything except a bathroom remodel. So the net result will be less clutter: a good thing.

P.S. Sorry for the lack of response to your comments, people. I was using a tiny keyboard, which was a miserable experience. Many thanks for the comments!

Sorry, I can't help but think this is probably good news, at least from a frugal/uncluttering point of view. Yes, you will need to find your pleasure elsewhere. I like to play the game of 'I have this need, what do I already own that could meet it?' or 'Can I use up everything in my cupboard' (I know you play that one too.) or 'Can I actually wear everything in my closet' (if not, it has to go). Uou'll find another way to entertain yourself, I'm sure.
