We have a lost and found basket and a "give-aways" basket on a counter in one of the bathrooms. If someone finds shoes/socks etc. in the Common House, they just dump them in L & F. The weekend cleaners do the same. Periodically the items are laid out on a table in the dining room with the warning that charitable donation is imminent. The unclaimed stuff then goes to the thrift store (task falls to those the baskets bother most). This keeps the CH relatively uncluttered.
