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 for us for anything that we won’t keep as back-up or spare room/basement furniture etc.

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.

A lot of our stuff came from Goodwill, and that’s where it’s headed back to!

Little brothers and sister will be the lucky winners of several 30 year old sets of pots, pans and dishes. Damn, that stoneware lasts forever!

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.
