Cleaning out your house? Make sure you know what you can and can't donate at your local Goodwill Store.

Kids are about to be home for the summer break and you might have them start going through all of their stuff (to give them something to do). Now garage sales are a TON of work and if you don't want to go through the nightmare of hosting a sale, you can always donate the items you don't need or use anymore.

Before you load up box after box and load your car or truck you might want to know what items are allowed and what items aren't when donating to the Goodwill.

Other than that you are good to go when donating items to the Goodwill. The store accepts most household items, clothing, linens, shoes, accessories, home goods, and kitchenware. If you're unsure about what they take you can always visit their website to learn more.

One of the things I do is do both the garage sale and the donation. I donate what doesn't sell this way I make a little money and I feel good about donating items that I do not need anymore.
