MamaHype, aka the other half to PapaHype, here with some tips. It’s time for Spring, time for all things new! Of course our first impulse is to go out shopping, but this year, before we get that new Spring wardrobe, let’s do some Spring cleaning and help out our community too! Goodwill has come up with a fun and insightful little quiz called:
What’s Your Clothing Personality??
Really inspired now? It’s not hard to declutter when you’re focused and have a plan. Here’s a suggestion on how just 7 days can make that fresh start easier.
Goodwill’s #7 Days of Spring Cleaning Details:
Day 1) Clear your closet clutter
Day 2) Time to tackle the kitchen
Day 3) Spread holiday cheer (holiday decorations, center pieces, Halloween)
Day 4) Downsize your tech toys (used laptops)
Day 5) Clean out your office supplies
Day 6) Provide quality entertainment (unused movies, video games)
Day 7) Downsize your bookshelf
Here’s a bonus tip: Go through clothes you haven’t worn in a bit and turn the hangers on reverse so they face outward. When you use them, hang them back up facing inward. At the end of one year, if you have any clothing still facing outward, it is time to donate them.
Then, calculate your donation impact. https://donate.goodwill.org/ and feel better about your efforts. You can also go to http://www.goodwill.org/locator/ which shows how your donation helps your community. You’ve done a wonderful job!! Now you can go and get yourself that new outfit to welcome Spring.
This has been part of the Donate Stuff. Create Jobs. It’s the tagline of Ad Council’s campaign with Goodwill®, which reminds people that their donations support people who are seeking to earn jobs and build careers. To see how the process works, just watch “How We Do It” PSA. This post was shared via Bloggin’ Papas, a division of Bloggin’ Mamas.
