Working on some spring cleaning? You should know some things before you take a box to a Goodwill in Wisconsin.

A good spring cleaning is a deep clean and that can often involve getting rid of crap that's been lurking in your attic, basement, or bedroom for years. You might have saved them for somewhat sentimental reasons or because you literally just didn't know what to do with the thing but you didn't want to toss it.

Before you set out on the great quest to downsize and create the 'donate' boxes, you'll want to make sure you can actually donate your items first. Many charities have several restrictions in place on what they will and will not take. Goodwill stores in both Iowa and Illinois won't take stuff like your kid's old car seats or your old nasty furniture.

Wisconsin Goodwill stores have their own specific list of items they won't accept too. As you're looking through it, you'll see there are definitely several things on the list that you might think would be welcome to donate but they're not. For example, they don't accept any furniture. And they do accept one kind of television, but not another. It's also important to note that Wisconsin Goodwill stores are not offering at-home pick-ups for your donations right now. So before you start going through your house and labeling things to get rid of, check this list out before you load up your car with those 'donate' items.
