Help a Mom: Where to donate small trinkets, random items
Posted January 1, 2013
As we all clear out the clutter of Christmas and wonder where to put it all, a reader asks a question that might be on many of our minds. Here's what she wrote:
What do people do with the abundance of little trinkets and random small items that aren't trash, but can't necessarily be taken to Goodwill? I have a full bag of stuff like this ranging from Chick-fil-A meal books and cell phone cases to small stuffed animals and plastic cups. I don't want it in the landfill, but I'm not able to spend the time parsing it out either. I'd love ideas on this one!
Do you know of a local group that could use or take small items like our reader has on hand? Please share your tips in the comments box below.
