The local Goodwill and Salvation Army get quite a bit from me around this time each year.

Whatever I don't think I, family member, or a friend might need.

It's best, imo, to give directly to someone who might need or use a thing, and then to open it up to the pool that a thrift store represents in hopes that someone will need or use it.

Lots of books over the years. Gave away a couple of suits, some shirts and a bunch of ties a while back that I just don't wear any more.

I buy a fair bit from these guys, so I feel obliged to put back in occasionally.

Tons of shopping bags, as well as a pair of shoes that didn't fit me.
