    Hey guys. I have 3 brand new plastic snow shovels I bought last year as spares and never used them. I sold my truck and plow back in April and no longer do plowing/shoveling so Id like to sell these last few new shovels I have left. I had 8, my friend who also does plowing/shoveling bought 5, I have 3 left. 2 are the navy blue ones Home Depot sells with the metal wear strip at the bottom. The other is the more expensive yellow one, also from Home Depot, with the curved handle. It too has the metal wear edge at the bottom. These have never been used, not once, just bought and put into storage as spares. Im located in Northern NJ. ~Mike

    You're right. I paid about $15 each for the blue ones and about $25 for the yellow one. I dont expect to get back what I paid for them. I'd take $40 for all 3...

    Isn't there a little old lady or two in your neighborhood you could donate them to ? That would be the Honest thing to do....

    The little old ladies in my neighborhood pay to have someone plow and shovel for them...

    Donate them to a church and write the price off on your taxes.

    Depends on the churches in your area and if they have a enough sidewalks to use it.

    If you done with it and it is still useable why not, it is a tax write off.

    If you plow a church charge them low rates and then tithe most it back every Sunday -(keep enough to pay for the gas and product)
    It works out well for everyone.
    They get the road and parking lot cleared almost for free and you get a nice tax write off.
