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.
1. Go easy on the Post-it notes: These sticky little things are great in some situations, but if you find yourself using more than a few each day, only to lose them, they aren’t serving their purpose. Instead, keep a planner and jot notes in that; your precious little reminders will be much easier to find when they are in one location.
2. Clean-up: Keep a roll of paper towels and cleaning spray in a desk drawer so you can clean spills as they happen, and thoroughly wipe your desk down at least once per week.
3. Let go: Each month, toss out the pens, pencils, and highlighters that don’t work. Don’t hold onto staplers, hole punches, and other items that you don’t use; donate those things and give yourself more space.
4. Keep it together: Desk organizers come in many different shapes and sizes, pick one that will accommodate all of the things you use on a daily basis. In order to prevent your desk organizer from becoming a new home for clutter, do an inventory once per week and get rid of any unnecessary documents.
5. Give your papers a home: Take time to sort through the documents strewn on your desk, shred those that are no longer needed and file away those that you need.
6. Get Comfortable: If your chair is old and your desk lacks the space you need invest in new furniture, and donate your old things.
How do you stay organized at work?
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.
