Useful Resource List for Donations and Disposals
Hop on the Freedom Wagon – I would love for you to join me. Now is the time to finally feel liberated from your “stuff”.
Here are four (4) very good reasons to gain back your freedom:
- Get your time back to enjoy the things you love to do.
- Transform your space to meet your needs and to be more productive.
- Stop spending money on items you already have.
- Stop looking for the same items over and over again that you know you have but can’t find.
Keep in mind that when you are going through your things and deciding what to keep and what not to keep, think about holding onto what is important and means something to you. If it doesn’t have meaning, why keep it?
Whether or not you decide to go through your things by yourself or solicit help from a friend, family member, or professional organizer, here is a resource list to help get rid of your “stuff” and free up both your physical and mental space.
