The 5 Best Items To Donate in the Summer
Many of us have many items around the home that may no longer serve us. Children outgrow clothes, and over the course of a year, many of us add to our homes and wardrobes. Declutter your home and donate various items this summer to help others in need.
We need clothes for every season to feel comfortable, and with high summer temperatures, many of us move our lighter clothes to the front of our wardrobes. Now that summer is in full swing, take time to go through the clothes you have and decide what items you can part with, such as:
- Tank tops
Place these items into a neat pile so you can donate them to those in need. Going through old clothing also gives you more room to buy new outfits.
As you go through your clothes, you may find you also have a lot of warm-weather clothing that you no longer need or want. Rather than hold on to these items, place them in your donation pile. There’s no wrong time to give specific clothing away.
Some of us have various sheets, and as you clean your home, you may realize that you don’t use or need all of them. Most charities will accept bedding, especially because some individuals and families don’t have anything. Any sheets will work; we only say linen sheets because most of us use these in summer since the material is lighter.
Many parents begin purchasing school supplies during summer, which can get expensive. Key items like backpacks are around $25 to $50! Some families can’t afford this, but every child needs a quality backpack. If your children are grown or you’ve recently replaced their bags for a change in color or other reason, donate the old ones. Remember to evaluate the book bag for tears along the interior and straps while also ensuring the zippers work.
Got a lot of books that no longer serve you? Summer is a wonderful time to donate these items. Children and teenagers aren’t in school, and reading gives them something to do while also working their minds during summer vacation. This can also serve as school supplies to help keep everyone ready for the classroom when summer ends.
Sporting gear is another excellent item to donate in summer because this is the time to get outside and run around! Many charities take sporting goods, including balls, bikes, mitts, and protective gear. This is a great way to give back to your community while decluttering your home.
