Use Thanksgiving Weekend to Sort and Donate Extra Stuff

Thanksgiving weekend is a great time to go through all you're grateful to have, and donate as much as you can! Since so many of us have a lot of time off for Thanksgiving, it's a good time to go through stuff and see all you've been blessed with. If you're like us, you've been blessed with an abundance, even if you mostly buy used stuff in the first place!

So, if you're bored between now and the shopping frenzy of the weekend, consider sorting through it all. Go through your craft supplies, toys, clothes, and books. In this season of spending and plenty, there's lots of folks who'll be doing their holiday shopping at thrift stores. If you can, donate generously it clears space for you and gives back to your community. And, seeing what you're donating can even help you choose purchases during the upcoming New Year a bit more wisely.

This is such a good idea...to link Thanksgiving with donating unused good from your home to others. Next year I am going to promote this before the holiday and make sure that I get rid of more than I did this year. Thanks for the tip.

If you craft items such as: felt, Styrofoam balls, crayons, markers and so on, consider giving them to the local elementary school. They can always use more stuff.

This is a great idea and it is very timely. It might help prevent making poor purchasing decisions for the upcoming holidays. It is also living green to donate or resell excess since it doesn't contribute to a landfill somewhere, and someone with greater need can enjoy items that have outlived their usefulness for you. Clearing clutter frees up your time and energy to focus on your priorities, and it makes your home a more relaxing and restoring space for you!

This is a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing. It always feels good to share unwanted items with others, knowing it will be used.
