Decluttering is the gift that keeps on giving, so here are a few tips and some local charities that will make the most of your generous donations:
What to Donate
1. Start in the closet.
You were at the office, then home, and now you’re back at the office again. This Giving Tuesday, purge that stockpile of sweats and get real about what you’re actually wearing as you head into 2023.
2. Toss the pandemic souvenirs.
While you can’t always donate take-out menus and short-lived hobby supplies, it’s high time you parted ways and reclaimed those spaces in your home.
3. Donate the toys.
And, if possible, do it alone to make the job quicker and way less difficult.
4. Consider cold-weather items.
Gently-used winter coats, rain jackets, hats, gloves, blankets, and scarves are in demand this time of year. Make room in your hall closet by passing along times your family has outgrown or no longer wears.
5. Ditch the dishes.
One of the biggest obstacles to keeping your kitchen clean is overcrowded cabinets and drawers. It’s time to find a new home for all the extras. Keep in mind that home org experts say you only need enough plates, bowls, and cups for two times the number of people in your family.
