There's typically no better place to shop when you need a deal than a thrift store, like Goodwill. They keep their prices low because the items are donated to the store, so they don't have any sort of overhead for their stock.

We know that Goodwill is a great place to take unwanted clothing and other items when a yard sale doesn't get rid of everything - they typically take just about anything so long as they don't have an excess of it, however there are some things that they will turn down every time.

As you're looking through the leftovers of your yard sale, house you want decluttered, or estate that you're working to clean out, it's important to remember that both North and South Carolina Goodwill stores have requirements of what they will or will not accept.

Goodwill in North Carolina will accept all the usual donations like DVDs, clothing and clothing accessories, shoes, home decor, kitchen tools, and artificial Christmas trees, but they don't take all of what you're wanting to get rid of.
