{Daily Task #10} Bin Bag Challenge – Charity


Task #10:

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)
  • Towels
  • Home Accessories
  • Books
  • Pictures
  • Costume Jewellery and Accessories
  • Crockery
  • 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.

    I’ve just done a huge decluttering of my wardrobe, kitchen and linen cupboards. In Turkey it’s really hard to find charity shops to drop off, so I joined freecycle Istanbul… One woman was so grateful to get my extra plates I felt ashamed of how much stuff I have accumulated over the years. My mother in law set up the apartment when I got married (5 years ago, and a typical thing for a mother/ mother in law to do here). We had 28 plates for 2 people!! And 28 shallow bowls that area almost the same as plates. Talk about overkill. We also had at least 2-3 extra linen sets and about 8 hand towels that had never been used. It felt so good to get rid of so much excess, and slowly but surely things are having their own ‘place’ now there is no space. I’m also keeping in mind we’ll be leaving Turkey in the next 2 years or so, so I’d rather cut back now than have to do it all at the end.
