I'm in major clean out / purge mode. I have so many toys from when DD (who's 11) was a toddler, baby clothes, video game stuff that is never used. I thought maybe a yard sale, but it just seems like so much work. Maybe I'll just donate it for the tax write-off.

I donate.  The work involved in trying to sell it isn't worth it to me.

Something go out for clean up week. Some we put on craigslist for free. Some we donate. Just depends on what we want to do.

I throw away if warranted, sell if it's worth anything, donate if it's in good usable condition and not worth selling.

Give some away, donate some or throw it away. If I know someone that needs whatever I have then I give it to them. If not and its in good condition, I'll donate it or put it in one of those clothing bins. Othetwise i just throw it away. Yard/garage sales are time consuming

a mixture of all the above, depending on the item and what condition it is in.

Throw it out. I used to to yard sales but it can be stressful so I stopped.

We donate everything that we can. We sell some things of significant value. I recycle what I can, and upcycle other things. We really, really try not to throw anything away if at all possible. We haven't had a garage sale yet, but we may some day.
