Sometimes we are just not able to personally remove all of the unwanted stuff out of our home. It is either too heavy, too big, or there is just too much to physically put in a vehicle. So, during my last decluttering session, I went on a quest and searched for places that would be willing to come and pick up all of my discarded treasures.
The quickest pick-up date was given by Goodwill and they were willing to come to my house and take all my stuff as long as it was on the first floor and was near an exit. Done! I set up an appointment via computer and they showed up on time and away my stuff went. In fact, it was so easy I had them come back for more! It felt so invigorating and freeing to let stuff go. Less stuff = less cleaning = more energy for other activities. Woohoo!
The organizations below are not available for pick-up in all locations, but I have provided links below for further information. These are not posted in any particular order and is it not an all inclusive list. Happy Spring Cleaning!
General household donations:
Disabled American Veterans – DAV
Military Order of the Purple Heart
Lupus American Household Goods Donation Program
Cell phone/Smart phone/Tablet
Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship
American Children’s Cancer Foundation
Don’t forget to get a receipt for tax deduction purposes. All of the stuff you move out of your house to make it more comfortable and enjoyable is going to help others also live a better life. A BIG win-win situation!

Great post – thank you so much! Another thing that I do: I put things out on the curb the evening before garbage day with a big ‘FREE – Please Take’ sign, and pretty much every time, it is gone by morning. Lots of people do a neighbourhood run on those evenings. If it happens to still be there the next morning, I then take it to good will. 😊
Thank you so much for your reply and great idea!
