When you’ve carefully planned out your move to every detail, it can feel overwhelming when you’re faced with a pile of leftover belongings you don’t know what to do with. The good news is that you don’t have to take multiple trips to the landfills.
Multiple charitable organizations exist that are ready to send your unwanted belongings to someone who can get use out of them! Whether these items are directly given to a person in need or are sold at a thrift store or through another nonprofit scheme, they’ll be saved from going to waste and are going to support a good cause.
Donating your spare items is fairly simple. Most organizations are willing to come pick up your items for you, although you typically have the option to drop off items yourself at certain times. You’ll need to choose which organization you want to donate to and verify that they do accept the items you want to discard.
- Salvation Army: The Salvation Army is a longstanding nonprofit that has been doing good deeds for over a century. They accept multiple types of donations, including vehicles, clothing, and household goods.
- Habitat for Humanity ReStores: Habitat for Humanity is renowned for its work improving the living conditions of community members. They sell home building materials and use the money to build homes for people in need.
- Goodwill: Goodwill is a popular nonprofit that accepts most donations. From clothing to toys to books, they’ll take about everything. Just ensure everything is in gently used condition.
- Furniture Bank Network: Furniture can be expensive, especially when you need to furnish a completely empty space. The Furniture Bank Network connects furniture banks across the country to help used furniture get to people who can use it.
