TchotchkesLeftover tchotchkes and materials on your hands? Save on return shipping and get a tax write-off by donating them to charity. For example, a teachers' association can donate items to a local education group, such as A Gift For Teaching (agiftforteaching.org), or a building organization can donate materials to Habitat for Humanity (habitat.org). Thanks to Visit Orlando's destination management services team (orlandomeeting.com) for the idea.
