In an effort to declutter our combined living space, someone suggested we donate stuff to Goodwill or Salvation Army and get tax deductions. I've never donated items for tax purposes and was wondering how do you "price" things? Is there anywhere I can get a list of estimates? Thanks for your thoughts and all your great advice.

When you donate a thing you get a reciept for the thing. It's worth whatever you claim on your return. If IRS thinks otherwise, they will let you know.
