3. Start a Donation Pile
When you come across something you no longer need or use, toss it in a donate pile. After your pile gains some height, take it to a local thrift store. Not only will it free up some space, but donating unused items gives them a new life. Many thrift and consignment stores benefit local non-profits which means your donations could contribute to a worthy cause. Double win!
4. Do Away with Duplicates
If your family and friends have similar gift-giving tendencies you might be the proud owner of many duplicates. Having multiple bottle openers, duplicate books or half a dozen water bottles might be useful at times, but they ultimately create cutter in your space. Leave duplicates unopened and re-gift them or toss them in your new donate pile!
5. Fix it or Re-Purpose it
Life can get hectic but sticking to the rule, “fix it or re-purpose it”, will keep your space free from unusable or worn out items. Learning to sew can be a breeze. You might even check out some hacks like how to transform old t-shirts into a rug! But, if you don’t possess that creative spirit, have no fear!
