If you're like many this time of year, you've probably started to think about spring cleaning and donating all those items you no longer use to Goodwill.

Besides the fact that it's the time of year to do some deep cleaning, I know that I have items around my house that I just don't use anymore.

I could try to have a garage sale. But, I would rather get them all out of my house at once, and why not help a good cause while I'm doing it? If you feel the same, have you thought about donating items to Goodwill?
