A list of where to donate to charity and recycle after your decluttering.
So, you caught the decluttering bug and have been incredibly productive and ruthless in unearthing the unnecessary, redundant and unwanted ‘stuff' that has been hiding in your home for years and now you would like to find a new home for it. OR…you know you need to get busy ridding your home of clutter but are just putting your plan in place. I have put together a list of charities to donate and places to recycle household items and declutter.
Some of these are affiliate links and I will earn a small commission off of the sale of these products, but the price you are charged is not affected. You can see my full disclosure policy here.
In her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo stresses that the purpose of an object is to bring joy. If an item no longer brings you joy or has a purpose in your life, you are doing that object and the person who does need or get joy from the object, a great service by bringing them together. I find it's always easier to remove stuff from my home when I know it's going to someone who will put it to good use.
So, not only would you like your discards to land somewhere where they might be useful, but we surely don't need to add more to our landfills. What do you do with all your discards and where to recycle? I'm here with some answers.
There are many agencies and charities where you can donate your gently used items and make them available to those who need it. If you're documenting your donations to charity for tax purposes, here's a site which gives suggested values of commonly donated items.
Now that you have a list of charities and know where to donate and places to recycle …keep uncluttering!
