Dump your ex’s stuff this Valentine’s Day with Goodwill’s February donation drive

Reminders of your ex still taking up space? Dump ’em!

Ah, Valentine’s day. If there’s one holiday to have a love-hate relationship with, it’s this one. Luckily, Goodwill Las Vegas is making V-Day a little easier to tolerate for newly single ladies and gents—especially those who still have their ex’s unwanted belongings lying around, cluttering up the house.

The nonprofit’s anti-Valentine’s Day “Dump Your X’s Stuff” donation drive encourages donors to “don’t hate, donate” by dropping off items “an ex-boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse left behind after the split,” from DVDs and records to clothing and more. On top of a fresh slate (and a tax write-off!) participants get an “I Dumped My X’s Stuff” sticker to wear and proudly celebrate their newfound independence. Sounds like a win-win!
