If you are planning on downsizing in the future, or would just like to give some items to charity to get rid of some of the clutter in your home this technique may be able to help you do it more efficiently.

We compiled a list of donation centers in the area that would be happy to take all of your unwanted items. These charities will be able to use your donated items and get them to those in need. If you have other items that need to be simply disposed of, we also listed both the recycling center as well as the nearest landfill if all else fails. In addition to this list we also have links to the IRS website so you can print out the proper forms for charitable donation tax deductions. If you need help understanding the process we also have included the instructions the IRS has on their website as well.
