Re: What do I do with toys?

Donating is quick, easy, and done. It gets everything out of the house and that's really more important than the money in most cases, at least for me. It's different with things I know I'll make enough money on to be worth it, but that's sadly not the majority of kids toys. Actually, I'd much rather give the toys to a charity like Salvation Army. When we lived in a shelter when our roof nearly caved in on the house we were renting my daughter went to the Salvation Army day care. They often sent the kids home with clothes, toys, shoes, and other things that kids need and want directly from the donations, all pulled before the stuff they put on the sale floors in their shops. Since then I've been giving my toys there whenever my kids outgrow them. It makes me feel good to know that the things I donate might just end up being gifted to a needy child instead of bought.
That is cool. I'll have to make an effort to take kids stuff there from now on.
