Starting in 1980 and every year since I have donated items to Salvation Army, Goodwill, or a local charity. We've never had a problem with the IRS so here is what I do.

On a piece of paper I will list the item donated and the quantity (i.e. blouses (8)). The price I put down are prices that I see at the Salvation Army, Goodwill or thrift shops. Every time we have moved, I visit various shops in the new area to get prices and adjust my costs accordingly. The Northeast and West coast seem to be more expensive than the South; and even shops within a metropolitan area vary in price depending upon location--city or suburb, resale or non profit.

Hope this helps.
