Actually, if something is nice enough to donate, I refuse to throw it out. It’s wasteful and it’s inconsiderate to the poor person who might need it. I hang onto it until I can donate it. I either throw it in the trunk of my car or leave it in my spare room until I can get to the Az Humane Society to donate it at their thrift store. Plus, I can write it off on my taxes as a charitable donation.
Holding on to stuff indefinitely isn’t a problem for me - I have lots of room in my spare bedroom to leave boxes or bags for a few months.
There is no such thing as “putting it curbside” where I live. You leave something out in the street and you’ll get fined by the HOA. We have security cameras so you’d be easily identifiable.
You can believe me or not, it’s irrelevant.
