I want to prioritize getting rid of stuff I no longer want. I also want to give away the stuff that is still in good repair to someone who might find it useful or enjoyable to have, rather than throwing it in the garbage.

What are your favorite ways to get rid of stuff? I know of various LiveJournal communities and other online forums for getting rid of stuff. Are there any you've actually used and recommend? Are there charities and thrift stores you recommend? Other things I haven't thought of?

If you're trying to repurpose and renew the stuff around you, and make it meaningful, then hosting a "clothing swap" or "book/movie swap" is a fun romp for creating synergy and value with your friends. If you're just trying to REDUCE the amount of stuff, this won't necessarily help.

It can be fun, if you are really READY to let go of the stuff. Otherwise it can be angsty. Another wrong-turn is when people are not generous and receptive to what comes their way, and fight over what items seem "best" for whom.

Ideally, many folks walk away happy seeing their "trash" become treasure to a good friend or new acquaintance.
