Everyday Well-Being

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.

Fun fact

Nine million tons of furniture end up in U.S. landfills each year.
