Too Much Stuff?

If you have something you no longer need and either couldn't get rid of it during a garage sale (or don't want to expend the time and energy to host a garage sale), consider giving the item to one of the charity thrift stores in town or post it on the Wichita Falls Freecycle network.

Donating the items to a charity thrift store is a good way to help charities you care about to make money for their organization. Goodwill, First Step and Faith Mission all have thrift stores (which are also good places to find used stuff at a reasonable price--my purse is a $3 find from the Goodwill store.)

On Freecycle, you don't have to worry about getting your stuff to one of the thrift stores (Although some will pick up items.) And the person getting the item is getting it free. So check it out--you do have to register to post or look at items.

This is a great way to reuse items instead of throwing them in the landfill and to save money.
