Clear Clutter for Charity

by weeklyorganizingtips

There was an article in the Star a few weeks ago about where to clear clutter for charity. One of the biggest challenges of organizing – what to do with the things you no longer want or use.

I thought it was a great list and as we begin to move in for cooler weather and decide we have too much stuff – here is a list of places that will happily take it off of your hands.
