One Minute Tip: The Smartest Ways to Give Away
The easiest way to give away the things you love but have a hard time letting go of is to imagine the new life that lies ahead for them. In today’s video, Amelia Meena shares her five favorite ways to give things away.
-Make sure to call ahead to a Donation Center to inquire about their drop-off hours and what goods they’re willing to accept. Note: all donation centers have the right to refuse something (whether it’s in poor condition, too big for their store or they have a surplus of that item).
–Check out this list of Donation Centers —-OR—- If you’ve done online research and still can’t find a donation center for a niche item, go back to the source. Contact the store or supplier from where you originally got the item. They might be able to direct you to a good source.
-Remember: you can’t take it with you when you go! So if you’re no longer using an item in your everyday life, make a realistic judgement call on whether it’s worth storing (memorabilia, off-season items, heirloom pieces, etc) or if it’s time to move it out.
