Resources For Donating To Charity
Have A System To Donate Household Items & Avoid Those Monster Time-Consuming Decluttering Sessions
Keeping your house organized and clutter-free means getting rid of things on a regular basis. Having a system for this constant outflow is really convenient, and I highly recommend it.
The following is my system. I hope this helps you and enjoy!
- Always keep a donation bag or box accessible in your home.
- Anytime you or a family member come across an item you no longer want, toss it in the bag.
- Once the bag is full, calculate the value of the items inside and file your calculation in your current tax folder.
- Put the bag in your car and drop it off at a local donation site when you pass one.
Teach Your Kids To Be Charitable Early
In preparation for the holidays, a great habit to implement early in
your kids' lives is donating clothes and other items that are no longer used. This is the
time to do it, because it is a
lot easier to give stuff away when you know you're getting more things
This practice is beneficial for the following reasons, all of which can be explained to your children in your own words.
holidays are about giving, not just to your family but to others in
need and this is the perfect opportunity to be charitable. You could
explain to your kids that there are children without toys at all, and
they would love the items that aren't beloved and used anymore.
room for new things by getting rid of old things is basically the
clutter-purging process. This instills organized living, decision-making
skills and how to detach from material things. This can be explained
with the simple notion that one has to make room for new things by
giving away items that are not used anymore.
