Step 4: Donate, donate, donate
If your child has outgrown his race car comforter or you’ve redecorated and don’t need that slipcover anymore, consider making a donation. While you may no longer have a need for an item, someone else will. If you don’t personally know of someone who can get good use out of your items, call your local Salvation Army, Goodwill, or another charity. Bonus: Get a receipt for your donation so you can use it as a tax write-off.
