Two years ago I started throwing away or placing at least 1 item in a consignment/donation/yard sale box EVERY SINGLE DAY! By doing this it allows me to keep our house organized and clutter free. I have a monthly scheduled pick up with the Vietnam Veterans which is great because it “forces” me to be sure that I have items for them monthly. Not only is this great because it keeps our home clutter free it is also a tax deduction at year end!
I also keep a consignment box in our guest bedroom closet. As my son grows out of his clothing or a toy I immediately launder it and then place it into the box. As soon as my consignment store changes seasons I am ready to take my items to be sold.
This is a method that really works for us. I actually get a “high” out of purging 1-2 or more items daily! It allows us to live a frugal life by keeping organized, make money through consigning, make a tax deductible donation, help our Veterans and keep our home clutter free!
