Unwanted items? Donate, sell or keep?

Emmeline WestinApril 28, 2014
Most of us are quite good at amassing stuff we don't really need, I know I am!

I'm talking about kitchen gadgets you haven't used in months, clothes you no longer fit into or gifts you never really liked - what do you do with them?

Do you donate, sell or save them for a time 'when you'll really need them'?

If you don't need it, why not feed back into your local community? There are plenty of people who may need what you call clutter.

Always always donate unless they are totally useless... there is always someone who can use them. And believe me it takes time to amass all that stuff, find the right place who will use the stuff and not throw it for you just so you can have a guilty-free conscience.I have been known to fly with bags of stuff to give to Oxfam UK because they will use EVERYTHING and I trust them enough to make that effort. (BTW I don't fly there just for that, but I always consider if I have enough space in my bags on trips to the uk ;-0 )

@ASVInteriors That would be a flight with a worthy cause if anything - but pricey :) I feel it's almost liberating getting rid of stuff I no longer need. I do don't it enough though!
