Decluttering Ideas: A bin by the garage door!

Basket to keep your untidy items tidy!

In our attempts to declutter, I’ve gotten really excited by the thought to get rid of x number of items a day/week/etc.  I don’t want to take the time to count or inventory, however, so we’ve done the following.


We have placed a bin by the garage door, and we try to always keep something going into it.  We place items in bags, so that we can just take the bin with us but empty it by passing on the bags.  Now that those donation bins are everywhere (let’s hope they’re all legitimate donation centers helping the less fortunate!), we go out with the bin and easily offload the donations!

As we get rid of more and more, it has become easier to challenge ourselves to place even more in the donation bin, and I’m always excited at seeing it fill by the other members of the house.

Hi! I'm a family gal who has always enjoyed deals and saving, and especially sharing with others! This just seemed like the perfect blend of what I love to do and I'm always scouting out the next big deal anyway, so why not share!
