I started my spring cleaning early this year! Over the past couple weeks I gathered up stuff we hadn’t been using and “clutter” that we just didn’t need. I tool all this stuff to Goodwill. I estimate I had well over 200 pounds of stuff. Between the over 100 books, television, toys and clothes I feel like a big weight is out of our house! We don’t have a big house to begin with so it was nice to have some room spared up by donating our clutter!
I’m proud to donate my clutter to the Donate Movement by Goodwill. My used items will help generate a revenue to allow others to the knowledge and information to obtain a job. Want to be involved? Make a commitment to de-clutter, make a difference in your community and help create a healthier planet. Donate your gently used clothing and household items to Goodwill a few times this year.
The key questions that I ask myself that help me evaluate what to donate:
Do I really need this?
When is the last time I used this?
What do I need this for?
If I get rid of it, will I really miss it?
These mantras have really helped me get rid fo stuff because truthfully, I may be a borderline hoarder (confession). Because I am comitted to have a clutter free house, I will continue to donate to the mission or at least make the effort to do my evaluations of what I need to keep and what I need to donate!
On Wednesday, Feb. 2, from 9:30 – 11 p.m. EST Goodwill will be teaming up with Lorie for a “Think Spring Cleaning!” Twitter party at hashtag #donateclutter. We’ll be giving out some great organization prizes and sharing tips about organizing, spring cleaning and donating.
