The Salvation Army in NYC gives a list of values on the back of their receipt (8.5x11) -- I mentioned to one of the gentlemen there that I thought their prices too high. I know what things go for at garage sales and the SA prices where much higher. The man told me to look around and see what prices things were marked and I'd understand. I really was quite flabbergasted (1 "b" or 2?) to discover the "worth" of a shopping bag of old clothes!

So I suggest roaming around with Goodwill or the Salvation Army with a pencil and notebook to put a value on whatever you donate.

No matter how much goes out the front door, it never seems to make a difference -- a little like taking your hand out of the ocean.
