get ready for the holidays by donating toys that are outgrown or unwanted.

its a great time to box up some to bring out later as a "new" fun toy too or to put away for the next sibling

remember donations are tax deductible and who couldn't use the tax break could your place of worship use some toys or books?is there a family at your place of worship or a friend who could use some clothes?someone who could use a holiday meal?

secret sister them by leaving items on their door step or on/by their car

Just wanted to add that if your going to use it as a tax dedution DONT go through H&R Block..on their forms, they charge you a certain amount of money PER LINE.... ... It better to just donate and then not let them know!

My kids have so many toys (especially the little ones) and I tried to sort through ...and I couldn't bear to part with ANY of them! LOL

I'm worse than they are!
