More "Stuff" Out the Door

I recently gathered a pile of things for donation.  I guess the stuff had really started to pile up!  I had some clothes, toys, books...and other household items. 

We received a phone call saying that Big Brother, Big Sister Foundation was coming to our area to pick up donations. Woo hoo!
We usually bring our donations to Goodwill; but I was happy to find a charity that actually picked things up for us this time.  I went to the Big Brother, Big Sister site and set up a pickup online.  It was really simple.  The site said to label each bag and box, and to put it out on a porch or steps.  

I can't believe we found so much stuff to give away.  We declutter regularly, so this was surprising.  We had five large bags, and four boxes, yikes!  

Handy Boy even donated some toys that he doesn't play with any more. We've always worked with him to explain that as he outgrows toys, we need to donate them so other children can play with them.  

Where does it all come from?  Are you trying to clean some things out before Christmas?

I know exactly how you feel. It accumulates so fast! We just moved into a new home and have a couple large boxes of items to donate once we unpacked and realized there are things we just don't need anymore. Love the charities that will come pick it up, such a nice convenience.

I hate clutter and I'm always trying to downsize!

I have been donating and cleaning out the clutter w/ the hubby all feels good! I have piles of things to donate to cousins, goodwill, etc.

We have a pile of older electronics that we are going to bring to Best Buy too for refurbise/recylce...instead of just throwing them out (or bringing them to the dump if you live in an area like ours where you are forbid to toss them).

BTW, is that snow in the background??
