Need a quick karma boost? Do good: Donate extra stuff you don’t need before the year ends, so you can take advantage of tax deductions come April 2010, while spreading a little  New Year  cheer. It’s an easy gamble. Most donations are tax deductible (and we won’t tell if you take next year’s tax refund check straight to the liquor store for a good bottle of organic champagne).   Thanks to (the now-defunct) IdealBite.com for sharing this helpful scoop.   We didn’t always see eye to eye, but we’ll miss you!

Just one of the simple ways to donate!

Clear out your closets by donating stuff you don’t need.

Kiplingers has an in-depth list here of exactly which donations are deductible. Score a Tax Credit – looking to remodel? Green your home and get hefty tax rebates. We  are sure if you are down with this crew, you know there is never a time to  throw ANYTHING out. If you can’t get rid  of it on www.freecycle.org.   Still unsure of where to dump your old treasures?   Ask your favorite non profit if they have use for your old printer/ bed/ couch/ car/ whatever.   Most likely, they will take it off your hands and supply you with a tax reciept to boot.   Happy endings all around!

    This is a great post! Instead of throwing many things away, we can just simply donate them or recycle them. Thanks GirlieGirl Army!! :)

  4. […] The eco-fabulous website and blog Girlie Girl Army recently posted some fantastic tips on how to donate and recycle all anything that you no longer need before the end of the year. I immediately thought that these are great tips all year round as mamas-to-be prepare go full feng shui in preparation for the arrival of their little one. With the permission of GGA I’m sharing the fantastic suggestions here. To regularly receive great green advice, you can sign up for the Girlie Girl Army newsletter from their home page and follow on twitter.

    Great list! Better World Books is another great resource for getting rid of unwanted books. Many libraries use their recycling and redistribution services but anyone can sell or donate books to them (shipping’s free!)
