Donate outgrown clothes in good condition, unbroken outgrown toys and household goods in decent repair to the local shelter thrift store.
An hour to clean out, collect, drive and deliver.
We do this pretty often. I don't see throwing these usable items away, and we don't have anyone nearby who can use our hand-me-downs, so we take them to the shelter store. Local shelter residents receive vouchers to "spend" at this decent "department store" style shop for anything they need, from clothing to goods needed to reestablish a home.
YES! Sometimes I think about yard-saling it, but we come up with a couple of bags of stuff every month. That doesn't make for a great yard sale, and we don't have the room to save up stuff to make for a worthwhile sale. Someday, maybe we'll have another garage sale/yard sale. Meanwhile, I hope thrift store shoppers, be they shelter residents or others whose proceeds help benefit the shelters, enjoy.
