- The emotional link to donated items, and therefore a mis-pricing of the value of the donated
items is where I was headed. I was putting a more diplomatic spin to the "getting rid of stuff
they don't want" angle.


So if I have a garage sale instead and then donate the cash to charity, I won't get snickered at by the tax professionals.
