A box for decluttering

I have a box in my cupboard under the stairs. Anything I don’t need or love goes in the box. I try to put one thing in the box every day. It could be a pen/pencil/scarf/hair clip/roll of wrapping paper. Taking my excess stuff to a charity shop makes me feel good. My halo shines because I’m raising money for charity and it’s so easy. No need to run marathons, hold complicated charity events or turn out my pockets to chuggers in the street.

My box is see-through plastic so I can see what’s in it and keep it clean. 7 items in the box per week, multiplied by 52 weeks in a year = 364 bits of stuff GONE from my home. If each item sells for £1, I’ve raised £364 for charity.
