Are you ready to do some serious decluttering and donate household items that no longer serve a purpose? Decluttering is growing in popularity thanks to the rise of the organizing industry – and I’m all for it! Clutter is a known stress trigger. Free your mind and space by emptying our homes of the things we no longer want or need.
If all of this decluttering has you looking for a different or more environmentally friendly way to get rid of it all then I’ve got you covered. (This guide to donate household items is targeted to Kansas City residents but there are several national resources as well!)
Goodwill is usually a convenient place to donate unwanted clothing and household items. BUT if you are left wanting something more there are plenty of resources around town to support different causes. Take travel-sized toiletries as an example. If you have an abundance consider giving to a shelter instead of tossing them in the trash!
Still have stuff lurking that’s not accepted by or not suitable for a thrift store? Here are some resources for donating or recycling items that can be trickier to get rid of.
I hope this list helps you dispose of your unwanted items in a thoughtful way. Be sure to check out RecycleSpot.org for even more ways to recycle household items. Download a full copy of the guide HERE. Happy decluttering!
