Several years ago I started having problems with my feet hurting. As time went by the pain became so intense that I could hardly walk, especially when I got out of bed in the morning. I discovered that I had Plantar Faciatis. I did all of the recommended exercises and gained some relief, but not much.
One day I was at a physical therapy session, with my sister who has ms, and the therapist had on a pair of zcoil shoes. They look a little strange, so I had to ask her about them. She also suffered from Plantar Faciatis. She had worn her zcoil shoes for about 2 years and could now wear regular shoes occasionally.
So I immediately purchase a pair. What a relief. It took a while, but soon I began to feel the relief in my feet. These shoes are wonderful. I now own 3 pair and love them. I also have reached a point where I can wear regular shoes. Of course I still wear the zcoil, especially if I am going to be doing a lot of walking.
Many people have inquired about my shoes and I am always eager to share my experience with them.
Goodwill is owned by an individual and is not what it is portrayed to be. Everything is donated and then sold either through their stores or on line. It is like any other business, except they use the system so they can hire at a lower wage.

The Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, and other organizations who receive donated items help a great number of individuals with their proceeds. Not Goodwill, it goes into the pocket of the business owner.

At one time you could find some very nice things at the local Goodwill stores, but not anymore. Most of the stores mainly sell clothing with a scattering of other items. All of the "good stuff" is sold on line where they can get more money for the items.

The clothing prices have reached the place where you can purchase new items, on sale, for close to the same price as they are charging for used items. Occasionally you can find a bargain, but not often.

I would suggest donating to organizations that will use your donated items to help others, instead of donating to Goodwill where it only helps one individual. With other organizations some of the items are placed for sale while other items are free to those in need. They also use their proceeds to help the community and the people within that community who are homeless or struggling for survival.
Recently there was a property that I was interested in bidding on. The bidding was to be from the 17th to the 19th of February. I went to place a bid and the property was not there. I contacted them and they said that it had been sold at pre auction. I did not see anything about a pre auction when I was researching.

This is not fair nor ethical. I did not get a chance to bid. When I asked who had purchased the property they would not tell me. How can they get away with such underhanded dealings? I cannot believe this is legal,
