Whether you’re planning to move or just want to organize your household, now is a good time to “weed out” unwanted items.
As a rule of thumb, discard anything you haven’t used in 12 months, especially clothing you don’t wear or items your children have outgrown.
1. Throw away broken-down, worn-out items.
2. Get rid of old magazines by offering them to a hospital, school, nursing home or daycare center.
3. Recycle newspapers or use them for lighting fires or covering things while painting or cleaning.
4. Dispose of all expired medications properly. Call a local recycling center if you have paints, chemicals or other toxic materials to dispose.
Items that are in good, clean condition — clothing, furniture, accessories, appliances — can be sold at a garage sale or donated to a charity. Some agencies will even pick up donated materials.
