Well, couple of reasons…One, people are getting rid of their “old stuff” to make room for “new stuff” this month. Electronics, toys, clothes, and furniture loads will begin to make their way to the stores from now until the end of the month. And reason two…as our wonderful friend Shannon (Recycle-ista) pointed out in this post…TAX DEDUCTIONS! Your nonprofit, charitable, and religious thrift stores will be getting the donations all the way until New Year’s Eve as people find ways to get that ever coveted “donation receipt”.
Happy December and happy thrifting!
