You can always donate to Salvation Army’s Home stores, a good cause =)

I give things like that either to Goodwill, or Habitat for Humanity (they run a thrift-shop here, not sure if they do that in every area). If I have a bunch of items, I also sometimes check the “wanted” section of craigslist as there are usually ads from people just starting out / single moms / getting out of abusive situations that need household goods. If you do this route though, always meet in a neutral, public space (common sense) 🙂

We actually have received a notice in the mail from a charity called Purple Heart about when they would be in our neighborhood for pickup of clothes, small household items, etc. 

I was thrilled when I heard this as we just had our shower on Saturday and they are making a pickup tomorrow! 

Some places such as Salvation Army, if you have a lot of stuff, will make an time with you to come pick it up at your home.

We’re also giving our old dishes and glasses (which are still perfectly nice) to our upstairs neighbor who is a really kind bachelor.  You know most single guys need all the help that they can get!  🙂

I have started a small pile of things that I am giving to my sister.  She moved out of state to go to medical school.  I know she doesn’t have a lot of extra $ to buy things like a tart dish so I am giving her my old ones. (which are still really nice)

Battered women’s centers are also always in need of things. Most cities have one, and they’ll take gently used clothing as well as kitchen wears to give women a fresh start and safe home.
