Giving back

Redistribute things that don’t work out. The local homeless shelter, assistance agency, domestic violence shelter, or animal rescue may be grateful for donations of clothing, textile items and/or some household goods—call around to see what’s needed.

Donating to another sale is also an option—most collect items the week before. Offer extra items to friends and neighbors, join your local Freecycle group, post items in the free section of Craigslist, form a rummage swap club, whatever—but be sure to pass your excess good fortune forward.

As they say, what goes around, comes around. Good luck hunting!
