In my closet, I have a very important box. Depending on the time of year, it can range from completely empty to completely full. I love this box because it helps me in my quest to keep our home clutter-free. It’s my Donation Box.
Right now, inside my donation box are:
- some decorative items that we no longer love (but are still in good shape)
- electronic equipment that we don’t use anymore but could be really helpful to someone else
- some clean clothes that no longer fit
On the outside of my Donation Box is a label with the phone number of a charity which picks up my donations. As soon as the box is full, I call the number on the label to schedule a pick-up. Then, I put the label with the phone number on a new box and put it in the closet to collect any future donations.
