Donate and Get Organized ~ After Christmas Clean-up

 

Try these year-end tips to cut clutter and start the New Year off organized.

Tip 1 – Santa’s Rule: Get One, Toss Two~ For each new gift received, give two old ones to charity.  Donate it’s the perfect way to cut clutter.   Not only will this help cut clutter, but it’ll also be giving to those less fortunate.

Tip 2 -Take the Holiday Mailbox Challenge ~ After the holidays, there seems to be a plethora of empty cardboard boxes that came in the mail containing gifts.  Instead of just tossing them, challenge yourself to fill them all up with unwanted items from around the house, clothes, kitchenware, tools, etc. and donate to charity before the end of the year.

Tip 3 – Sort holiday decorations ~ before you stow them away in storage.   This will make them easier to pack up, and that much easier next year to take out and use.

Tip 4 -Send White Elephant Gifts on their way ~  Don’t let those “Oh you shouldn’t have… no really you shouldn’t have” gifts take up space and add to the clutter in your home.  Place them in a closet for re-gifting next year, donate them, or sell them, but there’s really no need for them to be creating clutter in your home.

The bottom line is:  Set aside items you are no longer in need of or want-of and donate to charity, now.  It helps you and others!   There is NO Excess In Charity!!
