when my mother passed away we took a lot of her clothes to a Barnardos charity shop, I chose that shop because they are not over priced. That raised £146, which I was pleased and surprised about.
Other items such as brand new underwear, toiletries , new nightwear , we took to the care home where she had spent her last few weeks of life.
I also cleared out the wardrobe in my spare bedroom and gave the clothes that belonged to my grandsons that they no longer wore ( I bought them) to Barnardos charity shop.
Old but good school uniforms go up to the charity shop near the school.
Some clothes, books games etc that they've outgrown, I give to a young woman who is very grateful for them.
other items around my house such as ornaments, nic naks, CDs, DVDs, unworn make up , I donate the to a local cat charity - where the items are auctioned/sold off to raise funds.
I have actually been into some charity shops where they have been selling clothes for more than the new price!
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
