Did you read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up? Did it lead you to throw away every item in your house or was the only thing you threw away the book?
It was a lovely sentiment, especially for someone who loathes clutter and takes pleasure in moving unwanted items to new homes. But what Marie Kondo was missing was the next step – what do you do with all that unwanted stuff? Can you make money with it? Do social good? Upcycle it? Give it to a neighbor?
For all you declutterers out there, I have created a flow chart to help you figure out exactly what to do with the items you no longer need or want.
