Spring Cleaning Donations
While most people think that spring cleaning only means spending the extra time dusting and mopping those neglected corners of your house, it also means taking the time to declutter your home. While it may seem like a tedious and time consuming process, spring cleaning can actually lead to a few more dollars in your pocket when tax season rolls around. Keep these tips in mind to help make a most of all of your donations.
- Give a girl a night of her dreams – if your closet is stocked full of old dresses that you have only wore to one or two special occasions, donate them to the Princess Project and help a girl’s prom dream come true. You can also drop the dresses off at your local Salvation Army to help benefit those in your area.
- Clean off your bookcase – your bookcase is probably cluttered with hundreds of books from many years ago. There are hundreds of organizations that will accept book donations and use them for various causes. From providing books to impoverished areas, to giving new books to senior centers, your favorite book can become a favorite of someone else.
- Help out the pets in need – if you have any gently used pet supplies, from beds to carriers, your local pet shelter will be glad to take them off your hands. Any extra, worn blankets and towels can also help to provide a warm, soft bed for pets while they are waiting for their forever home.
- Help someone looking for a job – any professional attire that you have, from blazers to button up shirts, can be donated to one of the many organizations that provide professional attire to those who are looking to start a new career.
Cleaning out your house is also the perfect time to check over your homeowners insurance coverage to ensure that you have the right amount of protection. Contact the independent insurance agency of Idaho Insurance / Affordable Insurance in Caldwell, Idaho for all of your home insurance needs.
