Grateful for clutter?
It’s not unusual to feel burdened by clutter but there are times when our abundance can invoke feelings of gratitude. We live in a country where many of us have all the stuff we need plus much more. Acknowledge your abundance and share with others in need, when possible.
Here are 3 ways to share with others while clearing your clutter.
1. Clothing, shoes and outwear. Charities are always willing to accept your excess so they may help others. If you have business attire that no longer fits or you know longer wear consider donating it to a local charity.
2. Food. Is your pantry overflowing with food? Next time you hear about a food drive (church, neighborhood group, school, Boy Scouts, letter carriers), fill a bag and donate.
3. Craft supplies or sporting equipment. Schools or your local Boys and Girls Clubs have tight budgets and might be in need of these items. Call ahead and find out what they could use.
It feels good sharing with others and it might make it easier for you to let go of your excess.
