Instead of throwing away old make-up, consider contacting a local funeral facility and donate it to their stock. Many facilities keep large amounts of makeup on hand and appreciate the compassion shown by donators for families who can't afford the emotional or financial cost of preparing their loved ones for viewing.
I found out recently that instead of trying to decide which make-up for a deceased loved one to take to the funeral director, it's better for the family to just take a familier photograph and allow the faciliry director to use it as a guide when applying makeup to the deceased.

At the top of every hour stop do 25 sit ups and 25 push ups. If you can't do a real push up do the modified ones. This will not only get you into doing some exercise every day but it will also help you to increase the amount of push ups and sit ups you can do. Also helps to add stuff to your Fitness calculator.
Donate old games (resource rooms for special ed), arts & crafts (crayons, construction paper, jars washed and cleaned, yarn, and such), old magazines and newspapers for Art classes at Schools. Donate sewing machines, pasta makers, etc to Home Ec ( to teach kids how to sew and cook). Donate instruments to band/orchestra for kids who can't afford to buy but want to learn.
With Schools getting cut backs, this is a great way to declutter your home and help out your schools and students. Collect from neighborhood drives to help schools and link a community.
