  • No not really. My dd's the only one whose outgrown clothes are usually in decent shape and I give them to my cousin. She has a little girl and she usually fits in anything my dd outgrows. My boys are hard on their clothes so they usually end up in the trash. If I have anything decent I will resell on ebay. My kids wear only name brand things so I use whatever I get from ebay to buy new clothes for them. We do donate canned goods and things like that when we have food drives though.

  • Yes- there's a ronald mcdonald donation drop point less than a mile from home. If I know someone specific I can pass things on to, I do that as well.

  • Yes! I just gave 3 big bins of baby clothing to a girl in the neighborhood. I usually take everything to the Benefit Shop.

  • We have a church that does an event every year at our apartment complex where everyone can donate or take anything they need clothes-wise so I usually donate then. For other stuff I bring it to Goodwill

  • Sometimes I bring it to Goodwill or I'll list something on Freecycle. Two charities come by every other month to pick up bags of clothes and household items, and if I remember I do that because it's easiest for me.

  • We also have a church closet, where all the members take their old clothes to. We actually sent some to Tuscaloosa this past week.

  • A lot of times now I freecycle because it's easier for me than having to drop it off. But my baby stuff all went to the Pregnancy Life Care center
