When You Can't See Your Closet, It's Time for Goodwill #donatestuffcreatejobs #spon

In my house, I always have a rule to donate things that aren't being used anymore. And most of the time, it's clothes that are being donated. Sometimes I end up having 4 or 5 bags that I donate to Goodwill because there's no sense in them sitting in my closet anymore if someone else can use them.

I usually go through my closet once a month and get out everything I don't use. Then I pack it all into bags and drive down to my Goodwill drop off box. Here's just a few things that I have put into my bag since it's the beginning of the month. I had a belt that was too big, jewelry, headbands, a maxi dress, a sweater and a skirt. All of these things have been special to me and worked well when they fit but now they're too big so I'm glad they can go to someone who will need them.

All of those items are bagged up and as I keep going through my closet, I will find more things ready to donate. Did you know that along with giving something to someone who could use it, you're also creating jobs by donating? From just the few things in that bag, I am giving about 45 minutes of career counseling to someone who will need it.
