I mentioned in my 2014 Goal List
how I will be getting rid of things
that have been piling up in my basement over the years.
So far, I have scheduled a pick up from the Lupus Foundation for tomorrow. They accept a wide variety of used clothing and household goods. They also make it so easy with their online scheduling. You just leave a pile outside the garage or front porch and they haul it all away!
If you have kids, you are probably like me and have a bunch of old ripped jeans accumulating in your closets! Half the time my boys get a hole in the knee even before they outgrow a pair. I just can't allow myself to throw the jeans in the garbage and add to all the landfills and I don't want to donate ripped clothing. But I have to do something with these ripped things.
Awhile back, I got on the email list for Blue Jeans Go Green which is a company that recycles denim into insulation. Whenever a retailer sponsors a denim collection drive, I get an email. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a retailer close by so my denim has just been piling up.
This week we are also bringing our Christmas tree to the recycling center to be cut up into mulch. It's so funny to see the huge pile of trees when you go to drop one off. The kids love coming with us...oh the little things that make them happy!
Anyway, that's what I am getting rid of this week. So far, so good on the execution of these goals!
Have you donated anything this week?
I would also like to state that I am not being compensated in any way to mention the above companies. I just wanted to share the information with you!
