Donating Your Clutter

Posted on May 16, 2015

Hopefully you’ve already completed all your spring cleaning and your abode is neat and tidy for the summer months ahead. But the million dollar question is: What did you do with all your clutter? Did you trash it? Or did you stash it all in the garage, basement or attic. If the latter sounds familiar, it’s time to get rid of all those things you just don’t want, need or use anymore. Instead of trashing it all, try donating items that are still in good, usable or working condition.

Donating is one of the best ways to get rid of your clutter because even though you have no more use for it, someone else may. Donating is beneficial in a number of ways:

  • It reduces the amount of trash that ends up in landfills
  • Donations are often tax deductible
  • Used items like clothing, shoes, books, appliances and more come in handy for other people in need

And did you know that many organizations that accept donated goods will also come to your front door to pick up those items? Contact your local Goodwill, Salvation Army and Red Cross to find out more about how you can donate your goods. Life Uncluttered can also help you to get your closets, garage, office space and other rooms in order once you have de-cluttered. Give us a call at 913-491-0900 to find out more about our services.
