I don't know how we accumulate so much stuff. I don't shop that much. Honest.
Love that name btw boobs thats awesome!! :LOL
But, Most charities will not take stuff that should be thrown away. Old underwear should be tossed if its "old underwear" Kwim?? But if its outgrown and not used go ahead. I would not wish my dh's old underwear on anyone since guys are known to let underwear shrivil down to paper thin stuff before they even get new underwear after their woman said I'm buying it. But those little panties we buy for dd that she outgrows, by all means.
When I said throw out the old one, I meant it unless it can be used again.
But most stuff cannot be used agin like that. But half used shampoo - I think its a good idea to bring it to the outreach center. That they can use.
I also do not shop much and I have no idea how stuff just accomulates in my house either. I declutter a lot too so I cannot imagine how pack rats live w stuff.
