If there is one thing we have too much of it is stuff. More specifically, things we don’t need that have accumulated over the years. Spring cleaning is a great time to keep this problem in check, but who wants to wait all winter? Instead, I would recommend a different motive, cleaning house for charity.
Hardware for Habitat
I recently remodeled the nursery for my first child and ended up with a bunch of leftover parts. The hardware for the doors was replaced along with the overhead light and electrical fixtures. There was nothing wrong with any of these pieces. They simply did not fit the theme. To avoid being wasteful, I dropped off all these parts to Habitat for Humanity where they will go to good use. This organization either sells the items to fund operations or reuses them in projects. Either way, your leftover hardware and fixtures can be put to good use!
