Works For Me Wednesday

It's been a while since I've played along, but I came across soemthing I do that is helpful to me. I have been preparing my house to sell and move. So I have been purging a lot. Actually, I am on the calling lists of both the local AMVETS and Vietnam Veterans organizations that do pickups. So about ever 4-6 weeks I get a call. I keep a box in my basement utility room, right inside the boor that is my donations box. Anytime I come across something in good condition that I no longer have a use for, it goes int he donate pile or donate box. Then when I get a call, I make the pick-up date on my calendar. On the appropriate day I set the donate box on the front porch.

A pile for my donations works for me. Visit Shannon for more great tips and ideas.

Thanks for the tip. I have a similar box but I take it to the thrift store myself. I don't think they do pick-ups in my area.

Good tip! If I had a basement, I'd do the same... As it is, I stack it next to the dining room table so I remember to take it to be donated on my next trip downtown.

Good luck with the house sale!

Oh I wish someone would pick up my stuff. I have a goodwill close to my home so I keep a box in my laundry room and toss stuff in then take when its full.

I'm unpacking from a move and didn't purge as much as I should have before the move. (My tip to you--throw out everything you haven;t used in a year--no sense packing it and throwing out on the other end.)
