Hello fellow peas,

I've come to the conclusion that I have too much stuff! Who would have thought it?! What do you all do with the items that you don't want to keep anymore? Where do you sell them? Ebay isn't working for me And there are not a large number of groups to give it to.

Youth correctional facility

... & more!

HTH & happy organizing...

I would add your local children services agency.

Foster parents are required to keep a "life book" on their foster kids.

So they are always glad to get supplies.

I list on Craig's list for things like tools, stamps and dies. Sometimes I fill up a large priority box with paper and sell for 25.00. I also give to friends or donate. Sometimes when I sell something on Craig's list, I will give them a little extra.

You could also post on the FSOT board here. If you want to get rid of quickly and arent as concerned about recouping any costs maybe post it here for free with the recipient paying postage (I'd recommend a flat rate box).

I have good luck with FSOT and Craigslist. Whatever doesn't sell in a certain amount of time, I donate to Goodwill and get a receipt for taxes.

To add to the charities, there is a group in my town that makes cards and scrapbooks for people in hospice, as well as an adoption agency that has "crops" for parents. I think it is the same as foster care, that the parents are required to make a life book.

The hospice group meets at our Archiver's once a month. You could check a LSS to see if they know of any organizations that could use the supplies.
