$ for school


Hello to all -

Hope you are enjoying your summer!

Question - I have made a wonderful attempt at getting organized before my 1st semester of NS starts. This includes cleaning out my closet, as hard as it was! I have miscellaneous items & lots of barely worn clothes that I would like to get rid of. I need the $$$ or I would donate them. I'm afraid in my neighborhood that I won't receive a substantial amount for the items should I have a garage/yard sale. E-bay is so big that my items would probably be lost in a sea of competitors. Do you have any ideas of how to make my items profitable?

Thanks for your time!

If you donate these items to the Goodwill or Salvation Army, you could receive a tax deduction receipt of up to $300. It might not benefit you now, but it will save you some money when tax time arrives next April. Good luck!

You could try selling them on Craig's list maybe?

Have you tried a consignment store in your area? I have always done better at those then at garage sales with mine and my kids clothes.

Wow - Thanks to all of you for your help. From the time I posted this message til now, the problem has been solved. Turns out that my sister has gained a bit of weight, enough to catch up to me, and is going to buy all but about 4 pieces from me! Yea! I do appreciate your suggestions though.
