Has anyone else noticed the outrageous prices on things at Goodwill. These things are donated, supposedly for the needy to purchase. Heck, the needy can't afford to shop there anymore. Since GOODWILL became "For Profit", instead of NonProfit a couple of years ago, prices have went crazy. If you really want to get angry, google "Goodwill CEO Salary 2013". It will blow your mind how rich we, as giving citizens, are making the CEO of Goodwill. My stuff now goes to Salvation Army, Churches, or Habitat For Humanity Store.
Any other suggestions where to take donations?

I never give them anything, either. I post mine on fb page it's called cabell county and surrounding areas low cost or free stuff. I meet them and give them away I also donate it to ecchho in Milton they are great and nicer things than goodwill. I used to have to go there, now I'm able to donate back. Once kids outgrew if I know someone I just give them away. I don't see any point in selling rags, $20-$30 I'd maybe get for them isn't gonna break me or make me even when I had to use the services of ecchho. Those people on the Facebook yard sale sights also kill me their prices are more expensive than goodwill even. Seriously it's just pure greed.

I usually don't donate clothes cause I wear them around the house to work on my home when I need to. But if I do donate clothes I give them to a church. The only place I do donate regularly is Saint Judes children's hospital. It's in every contract I get that they give Saint Judes a two thousand dollar donation. I know it's not a lot but I try. I atleast I know my money is not going into some fat cats pocket.

Uh, Goodwill isn't for the needy to purchase from - although that happens - but the money funds a bunch of programs they do in the community.

The money funds the CEO's $2.3 million salary last year. This is fact. Do your own research.

Did you get that from a fb post? Do your own research and get their 1099 and then we'll talk. You do know what a 1099 is right?

Not a 1099, but an IRS form 990 lists Gibbons salary as roughly $500,000. Seems pretty reasonable for a guy heading up a $50 million agency. See for yourself at GuideStar and stop perpetrating rumors you read on social media.

They will go up more when the minimum wage goes up. I've shopped there for several years and have NEVER seen the prices go up as often as they have in the last 3 years.

goodwill is ridiculous. Just stop giving them money. I did. I probably spent $200 a year and honestly found some great stuff but not anymore the prices are crazy. Greed. Milton flee market is absurd also. Little booths are sky high for used stuff. Where do.u go.for a bargain??!
