Donating Clutter

Here’s the second chapter of my new book.

Simple Way #2


Make it easy to give things away to charity. It’s one thing to decide that your old green sweater or the picture frame you got as a gift and never used can go. It’s another thing to get it out of the house. Here’s how.

Put an empty shopping bag in your closet. Whenever you come across an item of clothing you don’t want anymore, chuck it in there. Put bags in other places too; the kitchen, the garage, the front hall closet; wherever you might encounter something that makes sense to donate. When you have a bag filled up, make a trip to the donation station and drop them off. Don’t forget to start a new bag!

Right now:

Find a bag and put it in your bedroom closet. Label it “Donations” so you don’t forget why it’s there.
