    Default Garage Sale/Donation Boxes

    How are they looking? Have you been adding to them? If you have a donation box that is nearly full to full, time to take it to the donation location. You don't want a box for Goodwill to become clutter! That's the whole purpose of the box! To reduce the clutter!

    If you have a garage sale box or two or three (or more!) that is full or near to full, it's time to get out your calendar and set a date for your garage sale. Yes, it won't be for a few months, but write it on your calendar...In PEN! Actually having a date scheduled for the sale makes you much more willing to continue to add to the box, knowing that there is an end in sight.

    So, how's it going?

    I gave Dakota's and Chris' outgrown clothes to my SIL for her children. I donated the rest to Goodwill.

    Thanks for the reminder. I've got 4 goodwill bags in the back of the Suburban (been there for weeks). I'll drop them off when I run my errands this Thursday.

    I just did a red cross drop off last week. 8 garbage bags of outgrown/ unwanted clothes. I am saving up household stuff for a yard sale in the spring, but hubby is encouraging me to find it another home sooner We have a set date locally 2 times a year to have yard sales and I have to wait until they announce that day- I wish they would hurry up allready!

    I am also still going through and finding more and more to be gone!

    I have some storage boxes emptied out and I plan on filling them up over the next week or so. Most of it I'll probably donate.

    I've actually got a box full of clothing to donate, I just can't seem to find any donation sites! The places where they used to be are gone. I guess I should just pop it in the van and when I see one, pull over!
