Do you have something you want to throw away, but don’t want to simply put it in the trash? Our belongings are varied and the method of sending them along to a new destination can be as well. Some things may be worthy of resale, others might be suitable to give away, or perhaps you are uncertain if it can be recycled? A little block like this in the process of clearing a space can cause the discard project to stall.
Organizational expert Marie Kondo is well aware of this obstacle. So, she recently placed a resource guide on her web site to help with the process of discarding. For example, under clothing she identifies three different categories for discard: donate, resale, and recycle, along with actual organizations you can contact for each type.
One amazing fact shared in the guide is that the average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year for the entire country!
