After the Clutter, Where to Donate our Giveaways?

Welcome 2022!

We truly wish for a NEW Year!

Let’s make some 2022 New Year Resolutions.

  1. Learn where to Donate giveaways.

  2. Investigate how to Sell our giveaways.

  3. Recycle more efficiently & avoid the landfill.

  4. Buy less, use what we have better, recycle, donate, or sell our clutter away.

Tough to do, sure. But necessary in our ever changing world. Organizing our clutter is what we as individuals can do to combat global warming and use earth’s resources in a more friendly way.

Let’s Get Organized.

Somewhere in your home you have finished organizing the garage, pantry, linens, toys, your closet, or household books. Awesome job! You followed SK Simple Solutions’ 12 Days of Christmas Organizing and now You have bags of donations, trash, and recyclable items. Now what?

The first options to remove clutter from the home is to donate items to a charity or nonprofit organization. There are many local and national organizations that are worthy. Donate to a specific cause: breast cancer care store (Michelle’s Place), Vietnam Vets, SPCA, St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. Most of these are even in your local cities and will help your community.

I donated our car to The Wounded Warrior Foundation. Locally I donate food to St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and Goodwill. I like to pick a few in town, it feels more personal.

Please don’t donate…

Just a word, charity organizations, thrift stores do not want

  • Torn, dirty, soiled clothes, linens, or baby items.

  • Chipped, broken, or glued together dishes.

  • Dirty appliances.

  • Furniture with hair, bugs, or ripped covers.

  • Scratched DVDs, video games and CDs.

  • Electronics older than 5 years.

  • Flat screen TVs only.

These charities don’t have the people power to repair electronics, dishes, or clothing. It also takes time to sort all items. So don’t donate dirty, fractured, or unworthy items. If it needs to be thrown away, then do so.

If it is a large item(s), not in donating quality shape, call your Waste Management. Usually, you have 2 free (per year) pickups of large bulky items that need to be thrown away.
