Observed on May 17, National Pack Rat Day encourages us to take a look at ourselves and see if we have “Pack Rat” tendencies. While most of us enjoy collecting something, when our collections turn to clutter and we run out of space to put everything, a change is necessary for our peace of mind.
This unofficial holiday is the perfect opportunity to begin to clean your space and beautify your surroundings!
One way to recycle your unwanted (and overflowing) items is to hold a yard sale. An added bonus is that you might make a few dollars for more useful things.
You can also donate your unwanted belongings. This is a win-win scenario—you’ll get satisfaction from helping others and reduce your clutter in the process. There are many charitable organizations that will pick up your donations right from your front door.
If you are truly motivated, you can get a table at a local Flea Market and unload your collectibles or head to a website like ebay or craigslist and sell online!
This household purging is the ultimate spring cleaning–find your inner zen, make a little cash and do some good, all while keeping items out of the landfills!
