Green Your Garage Sale: Donate the Leftovers

Garage sale Turning your trash into someone else's treasure is as easy as having a garage sale. The next time you organize one, consider this week’s tips.

Tip #1: Green Giveaways

Instead of trashing your unsold garage-sale items, hand them to local charities such as Goodwill or consignment shops for recycling through reuse. Not only do you rid yourself of all that unwanted junk, you also put acceptable items into the hands of those who need them – instead of into a landfill. To go the extra, greener mile, consider donating a portion of your yard-sale earnings to your favorite environmental organization.
