Holidays are just around the corner and there is a good chance that you will be adding more clothes, toys, tools, furniture, etc. to the house. It's only after the holidays that some realize they probably didn't need to add to half of those things. So we go into a splurge. Trying to not feel guilty about adding to the things we already had so much of.

This is a great time to donate some of those items. I have combined a list of 7 things Goodwill will NOT accept. You can save yourself the hassle of loading these things up just to be told, "sorry we can't accept that".

There are things on this list you could post on social media and perhaps a neighbor or family in need could use. If you have something still in good condition with a little life left, don't just toss it, there could be someone looking for just the item you don't need.
