Did you know the busiest time that thrift stores like Goodwill and the Salvation Army face is the week between Christmas and New Year’s? It makes sense: Many of us have time off, which offers a good opportunity to de-clutter and purge unwanted items. One way to help is to avoid that week and plan to make your donation at least a month prior to Christmas. This does two things: It helps avoid the busy donation time, and it provides merchandise that can be sold during the holiday season, too.
