Bags for Goodwill or Salvation Army DonationsI keep a plastic bag on the back of my closet door. Whenever I see an item in the closet that does not fit or that I will not be wearing any more, I put it in the bag. When the bag fills up, I drop it off at Goodwill or Salvation Army. This is an easy way to clean out as you go. Remember, if you do this get a receipt. All donations are tax deductible.
