…from my SO’s previous marriage?
We’ve already destroyed his old wedding ring at a radio chemistry lab…
(Our radio chemist friend and myself before we destroyed “The One Ring.” It was TONS of fun and not at all as bitter as it sounds, highly recommended!)
…and there are items that he could easily sell. But there are other items that are a bit more problematic. Namely: an expensive glass serving bowl etched with their initials. I highly doubt that another couple with the same initials (his last name begins with Y), that’s willing to pay for a random bowl, will ever turn up.
I’ve suggested throwing it out of his window, but the community would definitely not appreciate driving over that mess. Any creative ideas for ways it could be repurposed or destroyed? Have any encores found themselves with personalized items they didn’t want anymore, but couldn’t necessarily just throw away or sell?

You could donate them go Goodwill…get a tax write-off!

DONATE!! Like Lorienne said, goodwill will give you a tax write- off, but if you dontcare about that, remeber that you are helping someone less fortunate. I garuntee that someone will take the bowl iven if it isn’t their initials. Someone out there needs it. I love taking stuff to good will…. I got rid of like 3 trashbags of clothes last spring..and already have another one ready to go!

donate it, someone will be very happy to find a nice bowl at goodwill.

Donation would be my top choice. Other than that, you can try listing them on eBay. First five items don’t have listing fees.

Donate or barter on Craigslist for something better? I don’t know.

Any chance the engraving could be sanded out?

How about giving it to the Salvation Army? Or Goodwill?

I think donate it’s a really good option 😉

Ooh, I hadn’t thought of donating before! I’ll definitely have to send that idea along!

I did donate alot of my ex’s things that he didn’t bother to come and get, but there were a couple of things that I took GREAT delight in destroying. He gave me these ridiculously expensive glasses on our honeymoon that sat in my china cabinet. I put them inside many, many of those plastic grocery bags and smashed ’em on the driveway. Horribly sophmoric, but very therpeutic! The bags kept the mess from getting all over.

I donate everything I don’t want! There is always someone who could use a nice bowl!
