Decluttering Home Less Stuff Living lightly Living with Less People not Things Quality over Quantity Re-purposing

Three Bags Full

Do you always donate your unwanted clothes and household goods to charity shops? Next time you’re decluttering, why not consider donating some to your local women’s refuge?

Most* are happy to receive clothes, bedding, towels, toiletries (full and gently-used bottles), Christmas decorations, toys, household items like cutlery, crockery, cookware, and soft furnishing such as blinds, curtains, wallpaper, etc. Some will even take part-used tins of paint.

In most cases these women – and their children – leave home with just the clothes they are wearing. Can you imagine how difficult that must be? And how brave they must be to make such a decision (despite the circumstances which lead them to it).

When it comes to being re-housed, these brave people need every household item to start afresh, so every little thing we can donate helps.

I love knowing that people in need are going to hopefully benefit from my unwanted ‘stuff’. 

Operation declutter continues, day after day, month after month, and year after year.

*Always check with your local service provider as this does vary from council to council.
