Go round your house and collect together anything that you no longer want or need – that could still be used by other people.
When finished, take the bag to a local charity shop.
My Tips and Advice:
Task 1 of this series was to go round the house and collect everything that was genuine rubbish and get rid of it. This task takes that to the next level i.e. things that you may want to get rid of that can be given to charity shops rather than thrown away.
Things that other people may want or need, that you don’t have a want or need for any longer.
You may want to look for things such as the list that follows:-
- Clothes that no longer fit you
- Clothes that you no longer wear
- Bedding (although only sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases because most charity shops don’t accept quilts and pillows)
- Home Accessories
- Costume Jewellery and Accessories
- Glasses and Mugs
- Childrens clothes
- Childrens toys
- Board games (with all pieces in tact)
- Shoes and Boots
EXTRA TASK – You may have some specific types of Charity shops in your area – for instance – in my town there is an Oxfam Book Store, and in a neighbouring town there is a Furniture Store for a local Hospice. If you have shops like this then its worth making the extra trip to give them their particular items.
