Hey all! Long time, no post! Things are finally starting to settle down in my life so I think I'll be able to start posting and mailing stuff again so huzzah for that :)

I'm currently cleaning out a lot of stuff from my house because I'll be moving out on my own in the next few months. I'm purging many items from my belongings, including a ton of posters from my college years. Some are generic pictures of animals and cool locations, some are art, some are movie posters. I honestly have way too many to mail them out here without breaking the bank on poster tubes and postage. I'm not having any luck finding a charity that could do something with them, and posters never do well at yard sales. So I'm trying to figure out what else to do with them.

Does anyone know what I could do with a bunch of posters? Any idea at all? I hate to throw them away so they're going to become wrapping paper if I can't find new homes for them. Thanks!

maybe offer them all on craigslist for a small fee, like a dollar each, or freecycle if you just want to give them away

goodwill, kids go there to furnish their dorm rooms many times

Teen and youth centers often put those up to decorate.

If you are still looking for a home for your posters, check the local childrens hospital. Ours sometimes gives them out as prizes in bingo and "good job" gifts after treatments.
