Holly and Heather’s Weekly Handy Hint: Spring Donations!

by helpinghandstwins

Spring is a great time to clean out your closets so why not donate your things instead of throwing them away? Every now and again, especially with the change of seasons, we like to go through our clothes and get rid of things that no longer fit or items we just haven’t worn in a while. We put big garbage bags in our respective garages and slowly fill them as we clean out a drawer or a closet shelf (sometimes it takes us a while to fill – we are not speedy de-clutterers!) There are lots of places that will take your unwanted items. We give to local ministries, the salvation army, big brothers big sisters and we even recycle between each other. Often times nursery schools are grateful for donations of gently used books and toys that our children have outgrown.  Each winter we take old sweaters, coats and jeans to the homeless shelter in town. Sometimes we see our old warm coats walking away with new owners right in front of us, how great is that? What do you do with your unwanted stuff?
