oh man, wish I would've known that a couple weeks ago. We replaced my daughter's mattress, but the old one wasn't bad at all and would've been perfect for a smaller child. It was just a little sagging in the middle for an adult. We ended up giving it to the Salvation Army.

Ahh it's okay, it was for my 16 year old son, not the younger one. So he needed something more for an adult. He was sleeping on the futon mattress after the frame fell apart, on the floor, which would have been tolerable for one of the younger kids but was hurting his back since he's almost full-grown size now. Thanks though. I was just surprised at how hard it was to find something cheap/free...as in REAL cheap, vs. Salvation Army / Goodwill cheap (which is still affordable but not quite for us at the time)..

Personally, I will NEVER donate anything to Goodwill and have refused to do so for 30 some-odd years. They don't clean/repair anything! When I was a single mom of 3 young children & not receiving child support payments, I needed a place to shop for my kids who were outgrowing their clothes in less than 6 months' time. After getting bummed out by Goodwill, I went to the nearest Salvation Army Store.

What a freakin' difference! The clothes in the Salvation Army store were cleaned & repaired (loose seams stitched, buttons replaced, etc.) and, on hangers, sorted by size -- as opposed to the trashy "bins" at the Goodwill store. Perhaps Goodwill has changed their "habits" in the last 30+ years, but I will never go back again.

Also, the Salvation Army was willing to send a truck out to come pick stuff I had -- unlike the Goodwill that wanted me to just "dump" my stuff in one of their "collection boxes"!

Another good agency is "ARC" (primarily helps "retarded" <no longer politically correct?> individuals develop living skills).

If anyone has ever driven by a Goodwill "Donation Station", all you see is other people's trash!
