Clothes or food to your local non profits??? I do to a teen shelter and a mother and baby shelter. I hate to see useful things get thrown away. I think everyone should donate to a good cause atleast once a year.

I did sell some baby things on craigslist, but lately I donate to the local women's shelter I learned about from play dates. I also crochet baby blankets and donate them to the hospital

I donate money every year to different charities. Like maybe one year I'll donate to the SPCA, the next year I might donate to a women's shelter, and another year I might donate to the Save the Music foundation. Every year I pick a random charity to donate to. I give all of our gently used clothes and baby stuff to friends and family members who aren't as well off as we are.

We donate to Airmen's Attic and Goodwill; selling clothes and toys are too much of a hassle.

And if friends don't want it, to goodwill it goes

Yep! one of my neighbors just put 6 FULL bags, out by the trash.. clothes! GREAT condition too!.. I was amazed at how much they threw away.. as my other neighbor and I went to grab them a man drove up and saw us opening the bags and asked if it was trash, he had his little girl with him. anyhow he ended up taking it all as well ass the other 4 bags of TOYS! he said he'll be donating anything that doesn't fit, we ended up talking a while and he actually works at a place right down the block from salvation army :)

amazing how much people just toss out that could be put to good use!
