Items to donate after an organizing project

Getting organized means letting go of things that no longer matter to you. Instead of throwing them away, consider one of the below programs as a way to responsibly recycle, donate or consign your stuff. Know of a great program that I missed? Let me know.

Happy Hauler Seattle

Have a lot of things that could be donated or recycled through various programs? Happy Hauler is a family-run business that does it all for you and sends you the receipts. They even group items and do things like donate an entire kitchen of supplies! Happy Hauler is also a NAPO Seattle business partner.

Marine Layer

Send your t-shirts to Marine Layer and they will be upcycled into its Re-Spun clothing line. You receive a $5 credit for each t-shirt up to $25 (but there is no limit on t-shirts).

Seattle Children’s Bargain Boutiques

Donate clothing, jewelry, household items and furniture to a Seattle Children’s thrift store. They offer drop off and pick up services. All proceeds benefit uncompensated care, which ensures children in our region receive the medical care they need regardless of their family's ability to pay.


Soma collects new and gently used bras for women in need. You also receive a $10 Soma credit for your donation.


Staples has a robust in-store recycling program that includes laptops and other tech, batteries, printer cartridges and more.

Little Free Library

Pack up your books that need a new home and drop them off at Little Free Libraries. My son and I have done this together and it’s like a treasure hunt for drop-off locations.

Mary's Place

Donate any in-season clothing and certain household items to Mary’s Place, which provides safe housing to women, children and families. Check out the wish list for current high-need items.

Seattle Goodwill

I can’t have a list of donation partners without including Goodwill. It has a convenient donation program for clothing, furniture and household items that enables their job training and education programs. Seattle Goodwill is also a NAPO Seattle business partner.

Humble Design

Humble Design furnishes homes for individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness. You can donate household items, toys, furniture and decor. Check out their donation list

Mattress Recycling

Mattress recycling can be tricky. Many nonprofits are unable to accept used mattresses and therefore too many mattresses end up in a landfill. Amerisleep has put together a helpful guide sharing how to find mattress donation and recycling options in your area.


Bring any pair of denim jeans at a Madewell store and you’ll receive $20 off a new pair. Madewell’s recycling partner turns the jeans into housing insulation.


One of the best ways to stay organized is to have a regular way to reduce as you go! Ridwell picks up difficult-to-recycle items and has a rotating category for specialty items like eyeglasses, sports equipment and portable devices. 


thredUP is an online consignment store that will buy your women’s clothes and accessories, and children’s clothes. You receive cash for your items or shop on the site. Anything they don’t buy from you can be returned to you or responsibly recycled.

City of Seattle

For Seattle residents, check out the city's Where Does It Go? Tool. You can easily determine whether you can recycle an item in your public utilities bin.
