If you’ve got bulky items around the house that you don’t need anymore and you don’t have an easy way of getting them to a donation center, you can schedule a free pickup from SATruck.com. The Salvation Army will come and haul your stuff away free of charge, and in return you’ll get a receipt that’ll come in handy at tax time.
In my area the Salvation Army is the only charity that will actually come to you to pick up your donations. This made me happy! It also meant I didn’t have to rent a truck to haul that old couch to a Goodwill store.
