When you're on a journey to minimal living, you end up with A LOT of clutter to get rid of. While some of that clutter may end up in the trash or recycling bins, it's great to try to reuse and minimize waste when possible. Sustainable living and simple living go hand-in-hand!
ONLINE: Facebook Marketplace, Local Sales Groups / Swaps, Poshmark, Mercari, Kidizen, eBay
IN-PERSON: Consignment stores, pop-up events (Kids Closet Connection, Rhea Lana's, others), garage and yard sales
Goodwill, Salvation Army, local shops, churches, family organizations, returning to work (ex. Dress for Success), animal shelters (old sheets, towels, blankets)
Special occasions, hand-me-downs, ask family/friends if they need or are looking for something
Paint decor, move it to a different room, refinish furniture, use something unused for something else (ex., an unused cute coffee mug as a pencil cup)
As I donate more and more, I am relieved that I'm reducing clutter and giving something a second life!
