What are you doing with your books/extra stuff/whatever that you don't need/want any longer? Like what are you doing with it if you can not sell it/don't want to sell it/not worth selling? Have you ever donated your stuff someplace or take it to goodwill?

I'd give it to someone else who needs it. Donating through wish upon a hero, freecycle or something similar. It's actually what I do with most things we no longer need. Rarely sell anything since most places require paypal and I refuse to use paypal.
There is a charity not far from here that I really love. I would donate to them if they had a need for these things. They freely give the items out to those in need, no strings attached.
I wouldn't donate to goodwill but that's just because I don't personally support them. Our local ones charge more than Walmart does, lol. I'd hate for someone to have to pay more for an item than it's really worth, kinda defeats the purpose of buying second hand, imo.

I have a lot of homeschooling friends so I usually just pass along things that aren't worth trying to sell.

I am not a fan of goodwill either, but that is all that I could think of off hand that would be something everyone had. I have never heard of Wish Upon A Hero before. I will have to check into that.

I list it on FREE Homeschool Curriculum and/or donate it to a store here that "recycles" (sells for dirt cheap) old library books and donated books. Some of the stuff in that store is a treasure!

What stores do that?? I don't want to do curriculum share. I know someone who was on there and had a lot of drama with a couple of the mods, and they were clearly in the wrong, over a couple of transactions.

well, I keep it. It might work with my 3 yr old when he gets to that grade. Other than that, I don't know yet!

I give it to a homeschool friend or set it on the free homeschool table at our co-ops end of the year picnic or set it for free at the curriculum fair. Anything that doesn't sell there I take to a local book store for store credit or post it on a forum. If you like Book Samaritan you could give it to them.
