Ever look in your closet only to find the dress you thought you would love for one more season no longer being your style? Between those moments occurring and my love for the KonMari method over the last two years, I have done frequent closet purges.
If my friends stop by while I’m tossing clothes from seasons past in bags they get to chose whatever they like otherwise it goes to my local Goodwill. I’ve been a huge fan of donating my wardrobe to Goodwill every season because the revenue from the sale of my donated clothing helps fund job training and placement opportunities for people with disabilities in the community. Works for me.
I also tend to clean out my kitchen and living room of items I no longer need and those items also count towards helping others. In 2013, more than 261,000 people earned jobs thanks to the programs and support services made possible by donations of clothes and household items.Want to see how much your donation will help your local community? There is a Goodwill Donation Impact Calculator where you put the items your donating and it will show how many hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, resume preparation, financial planning classes and other services you’ve helped provide someone facing challenges to finding employment.
Spring is finally here so get rid of some clutter and help others! You’ll feel great and your home would look it!
