Give away clothes box

Posted on Updated on

I rate this habit as easy. Everyone can do this without much effort at all.

I have too many clothes.  I think you might have too many clothes also.  Here’s what I do and am doing.  I have a “give away” clothes box.

No mistake what goes in this box.

It’s nothing fancy, so when I finally finish the de-cluttering of my clothes,  if I want,  I can recycle the box.  Smart thinking right?

The box is outside the laundry room, so that when I am folding I can make decisions to keep or donate.  And this way the clothes are clean.  Children can easily learn to put what they won’t wear any longer in the box.  And it’s really good for them to learn to donate and how to let go. I line the box with a large heavy duty trash bag and when it gets heavy but I can still lift it, I put it my car and take a trip to our local Good-Will.

Funny thing is, when I am shopping at  Good-Will sometimes I see my old things.  I still like them, but I never ever want to buy them back.

Anyway, Good-Will gets more money per item than I could ever get  in a garage sale, and money  is put to good use.  It’s all good,  a win-win.

( I recognize this is a box.  Oops!  My rationalization: it’s a temporary box being use as a tool to get to my goal)
