Keeping it simple today I thought I might just compile a list of the methods I have used to dispose of the items that I have decluttered.
- Donate to charity
- Give to friends
- Throw in the trash bin
- Bulk Waste Collection (Explained Yesterday)
- Curbside Donation (I will explain this one below)
- Sell on eBay
- Re-assign (eg. turning gift wrap into eBay packaging)
- Use up (like excess toiletries products)
Curbside Donation explained: We live on a fairly busy road and I have been known to take large items that I no long require out to the footpath in the hope that someone will take them away. I place a sign saying FREE or PLEASE TAKE ME (being careful not to hold that on my person when walking out there in case they get the wrong idea) on the item and wait and see how long it takes for the item to disappear. My barbecue was a classic example of this method. Prior to 365 less thing I had used this method to get rid of a trampoline, a desk some wooden shelving and some large plastic tubs.
