Trash or Treasure?


Before tossing those out of style curtains, well-read books, or like new baby clothes, consider donating them to various charitable organizations in Rhode Island. Your unwanted or no longer needed items may be exactly what a neighbor is looking for. Annual events, such as the Buy Nothing Day Winter Coat Exchange or annual community group yard sales, are a great way to support reuse in your local community.

Consignment Stores

Consignment is another great way to rid your home of items you no longer want, with the added benefit of making a few dollars!
