Hello!

I have just done a big clean out of clothes and household things (which I hate doing) and been holding on to things for years but not using them. I bundled everything up and took it to the salvos and I found this to be really satisfying and makes me really happy that someone will hopefully benefit from these items. I am going to do another sort out now!

  • Well done ! . I have been doing this for years and even the kids do a yearly spring clean as they grow fast etc. Best of all you can pop into the shops and you may get items you like for such a cheap price . Win-Win .

  • I am pleased that you didn’t throw the clothes. Someone else gets pleasure and use out of them. Everybody wins.

  • Great job! The salvos help a lot of people so it’s good to know that you’ve potentially helped loads of people out just by donating stuff you didn’t use or need

  • Good on you. Nothing beats the satisfaction of being able to help others out. Personally I enjoy the cleans out etc. find no reason to hold onto things that might never get used by us when someone else could use immediately. I do however understand that when they have been given as gifts it can seem a little abrasive to ‘offload’ them so to speak straight away :)
