Donate Versus Throwaway
If it's not of resale quality, but still useable, donate it to your favorite thrift store. Call ahead to see if your particular store accepts the items you want to donate. It's common for thrift stores not to accept cleaning supplies, paint, makeup, undergarments or mattresses. Some stores can set up an appointment to come to your home to pick up large items. If you have a large quantity to donate or if your donation is worth a significant amount of money, be sure to pick up a receipt so you can deduct the value of the items from your taxes. The donation personnel will help you fill out the receipt.
Take a good look at the items you have to get rid of. Are any of the clothes unwearable? Is the sofa your parents gave you when you got married ripped to irreplaceable shreds? Are the appliances broken? Can you imagine anyone getting use from what you have to donate? Ugly is ok, but unusable is not. Don't treat the donation center like a dump. You're not just donating to get rid of junk, you're doing it to help the store, so be considerate with your donations.
Don't forget to drop off the things your no longer use or need to the thrift store. Donations are always wecome!
