Now that you've cleaned the house, here's where you can donate your unwanted goods, according to recommendations from Axios Twin Cities readers.

Julie Koski recommends Legacy Thrift in Crystal (formerly known as Bibles for Missions) or Unique Thrift Store, which has locations in New Hope and Burnsville.

  • Every month, residents of Koski's senior co-op in Plymouth leave their unneeded items on a table. Whatever isn't claimed gets donated.

Others say they donate to organizations such as Bridging, which provides furniture and household goods to people transitioning from homelessness.

  • The nonprofit has drop-off sites in Bloomington and Roseville.

Our thought bubble: Another option is Ridwell, a subscription service that picks up hard-to-recycle items like batteries and lightbulbs.
