Would you throw them away or donate them?

I want this new set of dinnerware I am tired of having the same old same old.
It just hurts me to get rid of this stuff. Help me make that change somehow.
How or what would you do?

The sooner I do this the sooner I can get my new set :)

  • Sell them on Ebay, and use that money to put towards the purchase of a new set! You can set your listing so you sell locally, and can have the winning bidder pick them up for you, so you don't have to ship them and worry about pieces breaking!

    You might even want to keep a small piece or two like the sugar/creamer set, for "nostalgia" purposes! :o)

  • Freecycle them, that way you don't feel bad about getting rid of them and they will go to someone who can use them. Most areas have a local freecycle group these days, go to to see if you have a local group.

  • Donate or sell them. If you choose to sell, you could do it through your local area and then use the money to buy your new set.

  • Donate them, sell them on craigslist or many people do not have dishes or things that others just toss. That way, you will be guilt free...craigslist has a free part in it too.
