Spring is often the time that people decide to do a thorough cleaning of their home. “Spring cleaning” is traditionally associated with the ritual of opening up windows and doors so that a home can air out after being shut up all winter, but the term can really be applied to any cleaning project at any time of year.
One challenge that people often face as they do spring cleaning is that they’re not sure what to do with all the things they want to get rid of. A great solution is to donate the items to a local charity, perhaps even one that’s near your apartment in Alachua, FL. Not only will you be getting rid of clutter, but you’ll be doing a good deed by supporting those in need. Many charities look for used items like:
- Clothing – dresses, professional clothes, casual clothes, coats, shoes, accessories
- Toys – stuffed animals, games, dolls, action figures
- Electronics – CD players, radios, DVD players, video game consoles, TVs
- Decorative items – rugs, vases, pictures, frames, throw pillows
It might be a good idea to inquire with a variety of charities in the area to make sure they do accept the items you would like to donate. Many charities offer free donation pick-up service, though they may have size limitations on the items that you can donate. For instance, many non-profit organizations accept small appliances like blenders or microwaves, but do not accept large appliances, like washers and dryers.
