So a lot of the things we are registering for are replacements for crappy housewares that we have now. Some we bought for cheap and other were inherited third or fourth hand, but most are still in pretty good shape because we have tried to take really good care of these things to make them last. I am just now thinking about what we will do when we replace these items with new items we receive as gifts. Have you bees given any thoughts to this? I would like to give the items that are in good shape away, but I am worried they will be seen as “too used.”

We made weekly trips to Goodwill as we opened gifts and replaced things. Someone will find a use for your things! (and you can get a receipt, for tax purposes, if that’s important to you!)

Goodwill! Everyone else we know is already married, older, or has better stuff. Goodwill will throw it out if it’s not good enough to sell or find another place to donate for you.

Another suggestion is to donate them to a women’s shelter.

I’m with sewing – we’re “donating” them to FSIL’s house since she’s still in college & they’re in need of some decent kitchenware.
A lot of the other stuff with go to Salvation Army or a local store that benefits an animal shelter.
Things like our crappy toaster oven which barely works, I’ll be tossing. I wouldn’t feel right & don’t think it’s safe to donate.
Our “tupperware” aka plastic things our chinese food comes in that we keep — will be recycled.

Ours will either go to my FI’s sistr who is hoping to move out soon or to Goodwill. We already have duplicates of everything since we both currently live on our own so our registry is mostly for the odds and ends neither of us have.

My youngest sister just moved out of the house last year. She is in the dorms now but by September she will need a bunch of kitchen stuff, which I will be happy to give her.
