Clutter Free in 30 days

Spring is in the air, and with all things new and blooming comes a sense of wanting your home to be free of excess. It's always a good idea to take stock of your inventory of shoes, clothes, and your children's toys at least once a year. A good rule of thumb is if you haven't worn it or used it in a year, it's time to rehome it!  

Consider donating your gently used items to the NewBridge Family Shelter, Rust Street Ministries, or Goodwill.  You can also turn your kid's stuff into cash with the Just Between Friends Consignment Sale this May! As for makeup, food, and medicines, check the expiration date before deciding if it needs to be tossed. It is recommended that medications be mixed with items such as cat litter or coffee grounds when disposing.
