Quick Tips

Keep an ‘Outbox’ in Your Closet

One shortcut to a #clutter-free and more #organized #closet is to place an empty box or bin in it, says Apartment Therapy. That way, when you’re trying things on and discover a #garment that you haven’t worn in more than a year or just don’t like, it can go directly into the box. It won’t be long before that “outbox” is full and ready to #donate to to a charitable organization such as ClothingDonations.org. “I had a container I wasn’t using, so it cost me nothing, and it took me about five seconds to add it to the space,” says author Olivia Muenter. “After a month, I had a full box and an emptier closet.”

Start Decluttering With a Single Closet

Don’t make #decluttering into an insurmountable task — start with just one #closet. Pull everything out and sort it into #keep, #trash and #donate piles. Clothing you enjoy wearing regularly are easy keepers, while items that are too damaged, stained or stretched-out can go directly in the trash. What goes in the #donate bag is a little more nuanced: Maybe an item doesn’t fit, never worked as part of your personal style, or was part of a too-small “goal” outfit that now only inspires anxiety, CNET says. Send those #garments to ClothingDonations.org immediately, set a new goal and reward yourself with a new outfit when you achieve it.

Declutter to Support MIA Research

The Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) seeks “the fullest possible accounting” of troops still missing from all U.S. conflicts. Supporting its efforts is easy: Every time you donate your used clothing and household goods to ClothingDonations.org, VVA resells them to thrift stores and uses the proceeds to help chapters nationwide engage in research and outreach that can help identify service members’ remains and other clues to the missing. We make supporting the nation’s POW/MIAs as simple as cleaning out your closets, kitchen or garage — but you’re encouraged to attend a memorial event or fly the POW/MIA flag today and this weekend, as well. #NationalPOWMIARecognitionDay

Attend a POW/MIA Day Event in Your Area

Events around the country will recognize the more than 81,000 remaining POW/MIAs for National POW/MIA Recognition Day, Friday, Sept. 16. For example, the future site of the National POW/MIA Memorial and Museum in Jacksonville, Fla., will host a memorial service alongside a visit from the Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall. Orlando’s Veterans Advisory Council will host a POW-MIA recognition ceremony on Sept. 23. And Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 154 will holds its 36th annual all-night POW/MIA Vigil tomorrow and Saturday at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township, Mich. Find an event in your area! #NationalPOWMIARecognitionDay
