Are old magazines starting to pile up in your home? Rather than just tossing them out, take them to the gym! Your fellow gym-goers will love the new reading material and you’ll score a workout, plus more space in your home.
If books have become a problem too, just put them in a box and schedule a pick-up!
Do you have a piece of furniture you would like to donate?
Vietnam Veterans of America accepts gently used furniture! However, it depends on your location and the size of the piece you would like to donate. If you wish to donate a large piece, please contact the pick-up service that handles your area and they can let you know if a special pick-up can be arranged in order to accommodate your donation.
It may feel as if you’re putting things in place by sticking an item in a box or drawer in your hallway closet, but over time clutter accumulates and it can become difficult to find things you need. Here are 4 steps you can take to get your hallway closet back in order!
1. If your magazines are starting to pile up, consider going digital after your annual membership ends. As for the magazine pile you’ve accumulated: spend some time leafing through the pages, take pictures of the content you want to keep and then upload the photos to Pinterest.
2. Sort through your towels and separate them into three piles: those that you will keep,donate, and trash. Tip: save 1-2 towels from your “to trash” pile and use them as cleaning rags.
3. Throw away expired medicines and place face creams, along with other beauty products you don’t use in a bag. Some cosmetic companies including, MAC and Origins will give you a free product and/or sample in exchange for your empty product containers so not only are you left with an organized closet, but you’ll also score some nice freebies!
4. Take a look at how many sets of sheets you have and ask yourself, do you really use all of them? Most likely, you use two-four sets, so get rid of the rest. You can donate those that are still in good condition and throw out the rest.
1. Store your out-of-season clothing and get rid of the clothes that you no longer wear. A good rule to go by: if you have clothes that you haven’t worn in a year, it’s time to let go. Keep only the clothes that you feel comfortable in and that look good on you, regardless of how great they may look on the hanger. After you’ve finished your purge donate the items that you won’t keep.
2. Maximize your space by going vertical! Utilize the back of your closet and walls; hooks, shelves, a belt hanger, and an over-the-door shoe organizer are just some ideas.
3. Use shower hooks to hang scarves. Or, if you don’t like the idea of hanging shower hooks in your closet you can try one of these other DIY ideas.
4.Upcycle soda cans to hang more clothes. Bonus: this trick allows you to hang entire outfits, which will save you time in the morning!
5. Install an extra rod and use that for shorter items, such as skirts and shirts. Here’s a tutorial to help you out: Double Your Closet Space
