Clear the clutter, start a donation box
Its a simple thing but its such a big help. I’ve read about it on so many blogs I don’t know why I didn’t have one before. It’s not a hard thing just find an empty box or tub and when you run across something you don’t need and don’t want to or isn’t worth selling just put it in the box. Over time the box will fill and then you can just throw it in your car and of to your favorite charity!
I like having a designated box because then I don’t end up with donation piles here and there, and bags all over the place. Never fail I would go to make a donation and when I got back home I would find at least one pile I forgot. Hopefully this will cure that problem…
Also you can see on the top there I have some paper. I try to list everything I donate for tax purposes (did a bad job of that last year too) so this paper should help out with that. I will just write things down as I add them to the box.
Do you have a donation box? Where do you keep it? Do you have your spouse/kids/pets 😉 sort through their stuff often to discard un-used/unwanted or too small items often?
