Do you donate clothes, items, soap, etc?

The other day I was on a msg board where they were saying how they grab the little soaps and shampoos from hotels and donate them to local shelters. Then I also got an email asking to donate good work clothes to charities that are helping ppl find jobs. I thought about it, and I honestly have nothing to donate to either of those things! I take those little soaps and shampoos and I use them. I wear my clothes until they are old and raggity and need to be thrown away. It's rare that clothes are donated from me b/c either they are old/dirty and shouldn't be donated, OR I'm still wearing them. It's not often that I can't fit into my clothes since I've been the same size for years. So I'd rather donate money and let them buy new clothes and full sized soaps and shampoos. How about you?

well neither do i have those, but it is a great idea for those people that travel alot (my hubby used to do that) and we are still using up the mini shampoos and everything, but if that were ever happen again, i would know where to donate stuff like that.
