Now that you’re getting ready to move into a beautiful apartment home at One 51 Place, you have the perfect opportunity to clean up your old belongings while getting ready to move out of your former home. Moving to a new residence is the perfect time to sort out items that you no longer need, and donating to charities is an option that is both beneficial to your community and convenient for you. By donating to charity, you will be helping those in need while getting rid of unwanted items in a way that is both environmentally friendly and possibly tax deductible.
As you begin to clean up your old belongings, you may be surprised at how many items you no longer need or want. Many charities accept a wide variety of donations, including clothes, toys, books, electronics, and more. Here are a few easy ways to find which items you want to donate:
Appliances or electronics that still function but that you have replaced with a newer model often make excellent donations.
If you haven’t worn an item of clothing for more than two years, then it is probably a good idea to donate it. If you have children, any clothing that they have outgrown is also ideal for donations.
Any furniture that you no longer use would be much appreciated at many charities, and decorative items like throw pillows and picture frames are often highly sought after at charity thrift shops.
No matter what you decide to donate, moving into your new Alachua apartment at One 51 Place can be a wonderful experience. To learn more about our community, or to get more useful move-in tips, contact our front office today.
