Master Organizer I am not. But I do enjoy a clean house and I am always finding things that we no longer need. My husband has forbidding me to turn our basement into a what he refers to as "junk" and I refer to as "treasure," depository. So I either have to sell what I find or give it away.
How to distinguish between donation or sell? This is just what I do:
-If it is in good condition and I can not first sell it, I will donate it.
-Items that I feel are of high value to others, (some furniture, kitchen appliances, etc)

For Tax Breaks:
Search for a charity to which to donate your used furniture. Tax breaks are only given to those who donate to 501(c)3 corporations. To find out if your chosen charity is a registered non-profit you can use the Internal Revenue Service's charity search database.
Also do not forget to obtain a receipt for your donation. This receipt is used for tax purposes and should be kept with your personal tax records.
