After almost 2 weeks of simplifying the kitchen, master bedroom, bathrooms and closets, hopefully you have a pile of stuff that is leaving your home!

Day 13 Project : Donate the stuff you’ve decluttered.

Today’s project is more fun than work. It’s fun and quite freeing to donate stuff and rid your home of a load of stuff.

The simplest thing is to load all the stuff up into your car and drive to your local Salvation Army, Goodwill or other thrift store and drop off the load.

I donate stuff quite a bit but before you do that you may want to try to sell ‘valuable clutter.’ Newer clothes, an extra set of dishes, etc. can possibly be sold on Craigslist or consigned. Of course, this takes effort so only choose this option if you have time and won’t pull the stuff back into your home! (That would make all of your hard work worthless!)

If you don’t have time to sell or consign things but don’t want to just drop off all your nice stuff at a thrift store, think about friends and family who may have a need for your things. I prefer giving the boys’ outgrown clothes away to someone who needs them and will use them rather than dropping them off at the thrift store. A simple Facebook post or e-mail to friends could have some things spoken for.

No matter what you are planning on doing with the clutter, take action today. Go donate things, post items you want to sell on Craigslist or contact friends you think could use the items.

What do you typically do with your clutter? Do you do the easy thing and just donate it all or do you try to sell it or give things to friends?
