Give Your Stuff

Yesterday I wrote about avoiding fridge restock if you are planning on going out of town for the holidays. This brings me to another important task that I think everyone should do before the holidays.
Donate unused items in your home that you know you will never use! Give these items you intended on using but just never got around to it. Now you can give them to someone in need during the holidays that otherwise may not even receive a gift.
This can be done by putting items from your cabinets, closets, drawers and pantry.
For instance – do you have a pair of brand new slippers that you will never wear and maybe a pair of pajamas and a robe? Put them all together in a box, dig out some wrapping paper or the gift bags you have been storing (birthday is just fine) wrap them up and drop off at a woman’s shelter or retirement home. If you want to take it a step further, add a few travel sized toiletries or perfumes and a new hand towel.
You can do this for anyone! Make another box some other useful things like coupons for a free gift, fun snack foods, a book, crossword puzzles or stationary and stamps. The sky’s the limit on this plan and wow is ever practical!

So go shopping in your own home and start packing up those items!
