Whether you are getting ready for a move or just removing some clutter from your home, RNR Moving has a simple solution for you concerning how to get rid of unwanted furniture before move. Yes, you can always put it at the end of your driveway with a free sign, but donating it to a local charity organization may be a better idea.
There are many benefits to donating your belongings to local charities, these include:
- Getting rid of excess items you no longer need or want
- Making a difference in your community for those who may need these items
- Get a tax deduction for items that you donate
If you’re curious about the kinds of items you can donate to charity organizations, here is a broad list:
- Children’s clothing
- Household goods
- Men’s clothing
- Women’s clothing
Depending on the organization you choose many will outline a donation guide to use when recording items for your tax deduction; these items will have a low to high value attached to the type of item. For example the Salvation Army has a range for beds that goes from $50-$170 for a full, queen or king size bed. A single mattress is listed with a value of $15-$35. If you are wondering what miscellaneous item donations may be, they can be items such as computers, bicycles, luggage, lawnmowers, stuffed animals, stereos, books, vacuum cleaners, sports equipment, televisions, DVD players, etc. Aside from food and perishable items, most of these charity organizations will take just about anything you have to give as long as it is not in horrible/unusable condition.
