Finding Purpose in Giving:

How Donating to a Worthy Cause May Help You Let Go

In a world where material possessions often accumulate faster than we can keep track, the act of letting go can lighten your burden. Whether it’s clothes tucked away in the back of our closets, unused kitchen gadgets gathering dust, or books that have long been read and forgotten, we all have items that we no longer need or use. Yet, parting ways with these possessions can sometimes feel challenging.

There is a beautiful solution that declutters our lives and spreads joy to those in need: donating to a worthy local charity.

The process of choosing a charity to donate to is more than just finding a place to offload unwanted items. It’s an opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others. By selecting a cause that resonates with you, whether it’s supporting education, providing healthcare, or aiding those experiencing homelessness, you’re not just decluttering your space; you’re contributing to something greater than yourself.

Questions to ask yourself when deciding if you want to let it go.

  1. Do you love it?
  2. Do you use it?
  3. Could you use something else if you didn’t have it?
  4. Can you access it easily when you want it?
  5. Would you buy it again today?
  6. Would you stand in line to buy it?
  7. Does it make you feel great?
  8. Are you keeping it out of guilt? (let go of guilt)

If you are hesitant, put it in a donation box and put it in the garage but wait to donate the box until you feel confident you don’t need it. I bet you won’t retrieve it from the box!!

If it feels daunting, we can help. We do all the hard work. We sort, categorize and ask you all the right questions. Then we take away the donations and make sure they go to your favorite charities.
