Give Your Stuff Away Day ~ 9/25 August 18, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Less IS More.

TOO MUCH STUFF cluttering up your living spaces?

Mark your calendars for  September 25th!

Give Your Stuff Away Day, the  brain-child of Mike Morone, a 52-year-old former teacher,  is an opportunity to recycle  stuff that has little or no value to you, but would have value to others:

It’s a national swap meet, if you will, a day to reshuffle and recycle our collective unwanted but usable goods and, as Morone puts it, “magically shift ownership in one weekend.”  Just bring items to the curb and watch them get snapped up. Then take a stroll to find some free stuff for yourself.

Well, following on your earlier de-clutter post, I have been having a week of giving stuff away. Four HUGE garbage bags so far have gone to Our Alice’s church.

Great for the church, and great for your closet space! : )

How about that, you ladies are on a wavelength! Why am I not surprised? Love this giving away gig. We do it regularly, so much so that I’ve read it could be related to a past life fear of loss…either way, it works for us 🙂

I love clearing clutter. It always makes me feel liberated and free. : )

Couldn’t agree more. I love the term house-whispering, which inspired me to call blogging mind-whispering, which goes hand in hand with collecting experiences 🙂

Ooh, house-whispering. Cool concept.

Even better . . . mind-whispering. The sharing of collected experiences.
