Myself having recently been, shall we say, “snipped”, my wife gathered up all of the clothes that our two daughters (ages 6 and 3 in May) have outgrown over the years. I took them to Goodwill in tall kitchen garbage bags (13-Gallon size). Each bag was about half-to-three-quarters filled, maybe weighed 20 pounds each. The number of bags is embarrassingly and disconcertingly high. Each bag had about 20-30 pieces of children’s clothing, in “good condition” as far as that can be said for having been drooled or spilled on usually by both girls. Generally brand-name stuff, Gymboree/BabyGap, that sort of thing. I tried ask the Goodwill guy for advice but he wouldn’t give me any sort of a clue.
Can I get some estimates from the gallery, The Price Is Right style, about what would be the highest reasonable amount I can put down for tax purposes as the fair market value of each bag of clothes?
