Give It Away Now?

Rebecca is torn between giving her old things to charity, or selling them off at a garage sale. Which is right?

QUESTION: Rebecca is confused about what she should do with her stuff; have a garage sale or give it away. She already takes the maximum amount on charities without itemizing. What would God want them to do? She also has a 1980s sports car that she might give to charity, but she doesn’t know the procedure for that.

ANSWER: On the garage sale, I have the sale and give away whatever doesn’t sell. Sometimes I just give it all away, and God is all right with selling or giving. Giving a car donation to charity is an OK thing to do, but you don’t get much of a write-off anymore. All you get is what they sell it for. If you have a specialty car, you need to get online and find the market for that.
