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.
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? I’m here with some answers.

Well worn shoes can be taken to your local Nike Factory Outlet Store (I’m not sure why that appears like it has been struck through…the link still works) They will grind up the rubber soles to make the surface for playgrounds and tracks.
