I have scrapbook paper and stickers that I thought I'd use but obviously will not and now I'm wondering what to do with it? I don't have the heart to throw it away. Do you think it would sell at a garage sale? I am the worst at pricing garage sale stuff. I usually just end up calling Purple Heart to pick stuff up. I would welcome any clever suggestions. Thanks!

You could check with a few lss' to see if they ever do garage sales at their stores. My experience has been that at home or neighborhood garage sales, scrapbook items don't go for much $$ at all. Or, as mentioned by DisneyCruiser, it could be donated to MaW.

I did a big cleanup of my supplies this past weekend. I would love to donate them to a worthy cause.

You may also donate to your local Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, to your Mother's Day Out program at a local church as well as the Children's or Youth Dept at your church. Our kids are always needing supplies to make Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter and Christmas cards.

I would much rather donate it to a local group as above mentioned than try to sell it in a Yard Sale. You never get what something is truly worth so for me I'd rather give items away.

Good luck

Near me I have a person that is doing a scrapbook consignment sale this coming weekend. You might try to see if anyone near you is doing that. I think it is a good way to get rid of your unwanteds and make room for new stuff. The website I use is www.bargainwatcher.com. Hopefully you can find something useful to do with the unwanted stuff.

Your local March of Dimes might use them - ours does - to do theraputic scrapbooking with parents who have lost babies - and they have a memory book going for the nurses who cared for them. It's incredibly moving.

I have always donated my leftover supplies...Ronald McDonald House, churches (last year I donated a bunch of paper to the VBS group), preschools, and like a few said MAW foundation.

I probably should know what what MAW and LSS is...but its not connecting. Thanks everyone for all of your ideas. My preference would be to donate so you've given me lots of choices to check into to.

Or you could sell them on e-Bay - as grab bags or any other way that suits what you have. Then you could donate the money, or use it to buy more stuff. :guilty:

I teach at an alternative school and love it when people give me scrapbook supplies. We use them for projects all the time! :sunny:
