This is the ‘secret sauce’ to retirement satisfaction

This organization, founded by cheerful retiree Dawson Yeomans, accepts unwanted home possessions driven in by donors on Sundays and lets people who need or want them — sent by social service agencies — take and cart them away on Saturdays. “We are, in effect, the storage space for the donors who want to give us stuff, and we can parcel it out to the [social services] agencies,” Yeomans explained. Furniture Assist fills up its warehouse space to the brim by Sunday’s end with nearly everything people want to give away, from dining room tables and sofas to baby clothes and toys to kitchen appliances to computers and office chairs to assorted tchotchkes (my wife gave away two flamingo planters and five porcelain heads).
