Day #15 Organization Challenge - Trash Bag Challenge - Donation

Hey Organizing Buddies! Happy Saturday to you all!! Hey. . .it's that trash bag, again? Yup! Remember challenge #13 was to walk around your house and throw stuff away and I told you there was going to be a second part to this trash bag challenge!

As we organize each section of our house, there will be things that you'll want to either throw away or get rid of. Due to the poor economy, sadly many charitable organizations are very low on donations so rather than throwing the stuff away or worse, keeping them when you don't use the items, why not donate them to someone who needs them.

This second trash bag challenge will focus on items that can be donated. It will be an ongoing challenge.

Here is the challenge. . . .

Whenever you organize an area of your home, always bring a trash bag with you. As you sort through your things, consider donating a few items, especially things that you really haven't used in the last 3 years or so. . .:) If you haven't used them for that long, the likelihood that you'll use them in the future is highly unlikely. Why don't you donate the items to someone who will actually need them. As you organize, throw the unwanted or unused items in a trash bag with the intention of dropping them off to a charitable organization such as the Goodwill or Salvation Army. You can drop them off immediately or accumulate them and make it a goal to drop them off some time this month.

I actually have a few bags that I'm going to drop off at the Salvation Army on Monday. Okay, buddies. . .that's it for today's challenge! I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!!! Happy Organizing, Buddies!!
