Give Your Stuff Away Day

Do you have closets and drawers filled with things you don't really need? If so, you might want to participate in Give Your Stuff Away Day. The plan is that, on May 15, people leave their useful but extraneous stuff on the curb and offer it to the community. It's sort of like a free neighborhood garage sale and collective spring cleaning. The hope is that it extends the lives of products that might otherwise end up in landfills and helps people unclutter their spaces. If you can't wait til May, though, there's always Freecycle.
