Daily Challenge Saturday Jan. 15, 2011
Donate something you haven't used in months or years.
How to do it
Look into your closets, basement, storage room or attic to find an item in good condition you haven't used in months or years. It can be a tool you only used once, a serving dish received as a wedding present, or a coat you no longer wear. Dust or clean the item, if needed. Then donate it to a charity thrift store or nonprofit that collects items for reuse.
Why it matters
Clutter from unused items interferes with your life, physically and emotionally. When you give away an item that you do not use, you simplify your life. That helps you focus on what's important to you. It may also unburden you from reminders of the past that are not productive for your future. Plus, donating something that someone else will use makes you feel good.
Nine million tons of furniture end up in U.S. landfills each year.
I do this often!
Donated my unused clothes just before this challenge came up!
always a good idea!!!!!!!
...that Toaster Oven that has been sitting in the mud room is going to my husbands shop for any takers
I cleaned! One man's trash is another's treasure!
i gave out some clothes and blankets to a agency that gives them out to their clients/patients for free!! they dont sell them!!! LOL feels good to know that i helped someone else ;)
Cleaned out my closet...donated it in hopes someone may find use of it.
I was cleaning out my kitchen cabinets and found some cake pans from previous kids birthdays that I know I'll never use again. Goodwill, here I come!
I do this about every 3 months. I donate cloths my sons have grown out of, as well as toys they are not interested in any more. I also donate my old purses I'm tired of.
I do this majorly through out my whole house at least once a year and donate to a local charity. I also have box that I keep in the closet and a stronge rule that I keep specifically for clothes... If i buy new clothes I must discard one item of clothing for each new item I bought. Works really well to keep the clutter down and it makes me feel good to donate.
