MSU students move out and East Lansing thrift stores fill up

“Literally just a quick overturning from– literally got out of my gown and started moving out right away.”

New grads are moving out and moving on—- and for many that means out with the old and in with the new.

“We started off posting stuff on MSU’s craigslist, wouldn’t sell there we went to the MSU recycling center gave them what we could and after that yeah– just get rid of it,” said MSU grads Zach Lombardi and Eric Mallory.

In East Lansing dumpsters are full of old furniture– and mattresses—-

But as the saying goes– one man’s trash— is another man’s treasure—

And at the Salvation Army Family Store in East Lansing–

“It’s normally packed this high.”

That means triple the donations.

“Clothes furniture, you name it electronics, headphones,” said Salvation Army Family Store employee Todd Couzzins.

If they run out of room at this Salvation Army, these items won’t go to waste.

Instead they’ll be taken to another Salvation Army store.

The money from sales benefits the Salvation Army— so while things may look crowded workers say there’s always room for more.

“We’ll make room if we don’t have it,” said Couzzins.

If you want to check out the newest used goods– the Salvation Army store is open Monday through Saturday from 9 in the morning until 9 at night .
