It's way past the holiday season, and you might be on a decluttering kick and think, "Why not donate these old holiday decorations?" If it's the dead of winter and you're boxing up fake evergreen wreaths and ornaments, you're not doing a service by giving it to stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army. They depend on household donations that are sellable, and they can't move seasonal merchandise when it's out of season. Instead, save and store those unwanted holiday items for a few months; weeks prior to a major holiday is a great time to give, since these stores will gladly take them and be able to sell them, too.
