Finalize Your Decisions About Clutter



It sometimes is difficult to commit to decisions regarding what to give away to charity, because the items usually stay in our homes for a while. So, it is possible to remove the items from the box or bag, and keep it. However, you probably put it there for a reason. To make sure that donations stay donations, it can be as simple as getting a box that closes at the top. Fill it, and then seal the box with packaging tape. Label it as to its contents, and take it in soon.

I like to give to people that are giving the items away, this works best for clothing and bedding, but also toys and children's books--children always need toys and reading material.

    Once it is out of sight you will soon forget what is in the box and parting is easier. emoticon - by SPINGIRL1963
  • No, you need to label it so that you don't forget its contents. And donate it as soon as possible! It shouldn't be sitting around your house very long once you have it all prepared. - by AUNA_VISTA
