Whether you live in Boston, Worcester, Springfield, the Berkshires, and everywhere in between, Goodwill is probably nearby. I don't know about you but I have way too many items sitting in my closets and basement that just need to go. As a father of a young daughter, I'm rapidly accumulating more stuff around the house.
