Three things for Charity

The 2peas blogger challenge for Thursday was "What 3 three things would you donate to charity right now?" and this is right up my alley as I get ready for a major home purge and decluttering!

Mine would be:
  1. Clothes from my closet. It's been said that we wear 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time. I've been trying for the past few years to change those numbers and only have pieces in my wardrobe that I actually wear. If I've worn it even once the past year, it has a chance of staying around. I have a bunch of things that I know I haven't worn, or don't make me feel happy or good when I wear them. They are OUT!
  2. Old scrapbook supplies. I look at my stuff (and while it's not as much as some, it is more than others) and I'm kinda disgusted with all the things I have around here that I haven't used or don't use. I've purged twice this year already, but I'd do it again. Trying to follow the same principle as number 2.
  3. I'd go through my boys clothes and do another purge. C is our last child, so it doesn't make sense to keep any of his outgrown stuff.

I'd like to add that the 5 years we've lived here are the longest I've had an address my entire life. Usually we've been forced to purge. Now I have stuff that we've moved in to this house that we haven't touched the entire time we've lived here, or that is still packed from a couple of moves earlier. Those need to go as well.

Good prompt! Now to pass it on to you! Leave a comment and tell me what you would donate to charity.

Great list. It's such a good feeling going through old stuff and giving it to ppl who will actually use it. :-) I posted the challenge on my blog!

I really need to go through my closet. Just yesterday I dontated 3 pairs of running shoes to Soles 4 Soles and once a month dd and ds go through their toys and donate things they no longer play with to a shelter for battered women.

I usually donate old clothes to Goodwill and then food during the different food drives the schools have through out the year.
