General chatter - Help! Ideas on where else/how to donate furniture ASAP?

I'm getting ready for an out-of-state move, and I'm moving from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 1 bedroom. So....I'm downsizing! I just took 2 bags of clothing and a set of dishes to the Salvation Army. I had called them about donating some furniture (a good-sized desk, 2 3-drawer dressers, and a night-stand), but they say their next pick up day is a week after I move, and my car is small. I don't know anyone with a pick-up truck or large vehicle.

Any ideas on what else I can do with this stuff? I'm moving in a couple weeks.

Thanks!

Have you tried the Goodwill? Also, here we have a Habitat for Humanity Store in the West side mall or a consignment store. I'm getting ready to donate some stuff to them (HH) because we are doing some major cleaning since we will be moving. Other than that I can't think of anyone, sorry. But...

CONGRATULATION'S on your move! ANd best wishes in your new place!

We put all of our furniture on Craigslist when we moved and sold ALL of it within a week.

Run An Ad In The Free Section Of The Newspaper ~ I Had Over 50 Calls On A Sofa And Loveseat I Was Giving Away That Was In Good Condition.

If you live in a city that has it, I second the Craigslist recommendation. You can run an ad for free, and if you have a digital camera, you can include photos. I got rid of a sofa bed this way recently, and had half a dozen responses within 24 hours of posting the ad. Good luck!

You might want to try a battered women's shelter or perhaps a family shelter.
