You might be surprised at the number of things that Goodwill gets as donations that have to be thrown away. Even if it is something that they accept like the usual clothing, housewares, and electronics.

Goodwill isn't just a place to dump your unwanted items, they fill multiple needs in our communities. They offer jobs to many people and make a better life for them.

If you are a regular shopper you know that you don't want something that is used up. You want to find deals on the good stuff that people gave away to get a tax break.
