Otherwise, these items might get put back where they used to belong, leaving it to sit for another day when you will likely have to re-decide whether or not to keep it. Alternatively, you might put it on the floor or corner of a room until you can go out to drop off the donations, adding clutter to the room. In any case, it usually is easiest and quickest to finalize the decision to discard it by putting it in the appropriate place right away. Decision done. Action completed.
It makes it really easy if you have a "spot" for donations. Simply add items as you decide you no longer want something. Once it is full, take a trip to your favorite local donation spot. If you're in Houston, you might consider one of these locations that Flourish Organizing supports. (Click here)
Helping others by donating items I no longer need is a way that I can be a good steward of those items. I can help others. This generosity is an important part of my Christian faith. It's also a great way to keep items we don't want from cluttering up our homes, and a good way to keep useable items out of the trash landfills.
My name is Laura, and I love all things organizing!
