OK, you have cleaned out your closet and you have bags and boxes of stuff you are letting go.
Now what to do with it? Do you take it to Goodwill or shove it into one of those boxes in the parking lot of your neighborhood grocery store?
I am an advocate of donating your stuff if it is still usable. If not please don’t donate. But where?
You have to do some research and follow your own heart or make up your own mind. Here we have many many many (did I mention Many) options as to where to donate. If you want to look into some of the charities and be informed when you’re giving back, you can check out sites like CharityWatch.org to find out how your donation will actually reach people in need.
Everyone is familiar with Goodwill and Salvation Army but did you know many churches have thrift stores? Also, there is Dressed for Success, Veterans, Althimers, Food banks, CancerCare, habitat for humanity, Women’s shelters, animal shelters, Big Brother Big Sister, Soles 4 soles … the list goes on. If there is a cause that pulls your heartstrings you can probably find a way to donate to them.
You will be helping others and helping yourself. You can do it! Don’t let those donations linger in your home or trunk. Let them go.
Have an amazing day!! I do love your comments!
