De-Cluttering: Trash It, Sell It, or Donate It

Recently I read Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider, and I really enjoyed it.  I love to purge, simplify, and organize.  I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that keeping a home clean and organized is an endless job–especially when you have children!  I keep our home clear by classifying clutter as “trash,” “sell,” or “donate.”  Here are 12  ways that I keep our home clutter-free:

  1. Trash, Recycling, and Yard Waste: Weekly curbside pick-up.
  2. UCP (United Cerebral Palsy of Sacramento): Monthly curbside pick-up of household items, clothes, etc.
  3. FREE Magazines and extra arts and crafts supplies: Donate to local high school art teacher.
  4. Peace. Love. Swap!: Every other month swap of maternity, baby, and small children’s clothing and other items.
  5. Recycling center: Cash in certain marked recyclables.
  6. Used Book Sale: Donate books to local library’s twice-annual fundraiser.
  7. Amazon: Sell used books on Amazon.
  8. Ebay/Craigslist: Sell smaller (shippable) items on Ebay and larger (unshippable) items on Craigslist.
  9. Goodwill: Donate items to Goodwill.
  10. Second Hand Store: Donate baby items to second hand store.
  11. Friends: Give items to friends.
  12. Church: Donate items to church.

How do you keep your home clutter-free?
