For the Love of Spring! (…cleaning)

It’s that time of year again… the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, the windows can be opened (for a short time LOL)


I’ve been cleaning out the closets, the basement, etc. and have found quite a few things no longer needed from clothes to computer monitors to an old VCR.  Luckily there are quite a few options of places to donate or sell these items – QUICKLY!

One of my all-time-favorite stores – Whole Foods Market in Dublin – is hosting a huge Recycling Event today… accepting everything from clothing to furniture to electronics, and also offering a free shredding service from noon-4pm.  I love their involvement with the community through events they host!

Another recent find as of last week is a website called Thred Up!  I stumbled across their fashion blog called Style UP while searching through my community on WordPress.  They will send you an empty bag for you to fill with any new or lightly worn designer label clothing/handbags/shoes and ship for free back to them!  Does it get any easier (and quick) than that?!  Oh.  And they PAY.!!

They also have a great selection (in tons of sizes) of designer label clothing and can’t believe prices!  The site also has an awesome search feature to search by any criteria you can imagine — including only new clothing with tags!  😉

Another very convenient (and quick!) option is to schedule a curbside pickup from Vietnam Veterans of America… just click the link, schedule the pickup, put the items in plastic bags, and set out at your curb.  Easy Peasy!!
