“Tidy Tip Tuesday” Stress Free Purging…

With our busy schedules, no one has time to purge their closets. Adapt this stress free option for purging. Place an empty box in a designated area in your home. If you have room in your closet or bedroom that is ideal, but if it has to be someplace separate that’s completely fine. Remember, this is “stress free.” Don’t concentrate on filling up the box or scheduling a pick up. As you gather your clothes for the day, look through your closet, do weekly laundry, etc.. and come across items you no longer wear, doesn’t fit, or is damaged, simply toss them in the donation box. Don’t worry about designating a time to purge your closet or worry about how long it will take to fill. After several days or weeks, you will notice your donation box has magically filled up. When the box is full, simply close it and make it available for pickup or drop it off at your local donation site. The stress free donation box can also be used for home appliances, toys, and other wanted items…
