The cooler weather we had in Arizona last week motivated me to do some organizing around the house. The organizing included weeding out my closet of clothing and shoes I haven’t worn in the past 6 months to a year.
Knowing what to donate to Goodwill is quite easy to do with the inventory system I have in place.
First, I start with the hanger hooks hanging over the bar. After I wear a piece of clothing and it comes back into my closet, I place the hanger hook behind the bar. This system helps me keep track of the pieces I wear and which items go neglected.
At the end of the season, or when the temperature goes below 100 degrees here in Arizona, I simply pull the clothing with the hangers facing forward.
My recent donation to Goodwill yielded 10 dresses, 20 shirts, 5 pairs of pants, and 3 pairs of shoes.
After tackling my kid’s closets, I loaded up the car and headed to the Goodwill Donation Center around the corner from my house.
With an organized closet, I’m quite satisfied to know my donation will put people to work and support job training for those in my community, not to mention I feel 10 pounds lighter. Really, it’s that liberating, you should try it!
