I still may do it, but I seriously just have junk left and I doubt I would get more than $50-75 for all of this stuff.

You are supposed to only deduct the value on the items when filing your taxes. If the stuff is truely junk and worth no more than $50, then you should only enter $50 as the value when you itemize.
