ok, so i’ve been cleaning my room. I want to have more space and is trying to get rid or some shoes (mostly sandals) that i dont use anymore, they’re old, with a few damages but i dont want to put them to trash, i want some other way to which i can get rid of it. You guys have any idea?

Should i give it away to some children on the streets? Recycle them? Give it to a junk shop?

I work for a shoe boutique, and we collect used shoes for an organization called Soles 4 Souls. For more information there website is www.giveshoes.org

It really is a great organization, so this might just be the answer to where you can start sending you unneeded items:) Hope this helps!

I would give it away as well. Nothing makes me feel better than giving stuff to those who need it.

give it or if it’s something really valuable, hit up craigslist.com or consign it somewhere.

Most areas have a city mission – they can always use clothing and shoes! Always rewarding to give…

Why don’t you offer the ones that aren’t too damaged for wearing to your friends or family if they wear the same shoe size as you. That’s always a nice gesture and if you ever decided you wanted to wear a certain pair again you can borrow them back.

whatever is decent, sell at a buy/sell/trade store, you’ll be surprised at what they take and reject sometimes… and whatever they reject take that to a charity store… don’t throw clothes away, that’s not eco friendly…

i just sent it to an organization for street kids. The coordinator asked me in a kinda puzzled voice, “why do you want to give all your shoes?” I wanted to tell him, “trust me i have lots left at home!” hahaaha

Thanks for all the infos.

I have heard of the Soles 4 Souls and seems like a great thing. How awful to think that some people don’t even have any shoes! Can you imagine?

Soles 4 Souls is great. I donated a couple pairs of shoes right before Christmas and received a discount coupon for Piperlime.

I usually try to sell whatever is in good condition to local consignment and secondhand shops for a bit more $$ to spend on new items. Otherwise, you could take them to a thrift shop of your choice, or donate them to a local charity organization.

There are two ways I go about getting rid of stuff, both are ways of recycling.

I either donate things to charity shops and causes or I sell them to resale thrift stores. Usually someone will willingly take things off your hands if you put them out there.
