Donate, Store And Consign Boxes In The Laundry Room


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I keep three large cardboard boxes in the corner of my laundry room. One is labeled "donate", one "sell", and the other "store". When I take my kids' clothes out of the dryer if I come across something that doesn't fit, I toss it into one of the three boxes. When the boxes are full, I bring the "donate" box to the Salvation Army and drop the whole thing off. I take the "store" box up to the attic where I sort it into bins to be stored. Then I consign or ebay the last box!

    I like this! Except mine would be put away / repair, to signify whether they go back into dressers or into the sewing room! The 'donate' clothes never seem to make it out of the closet, so every major season change (summer/winter) I go through everything and put away what doesn't match the upcoming season and donate what hasn't been worn in the past season. emoticon
