Giving Back - Donating Things

I love giving back to my community and to people in general. One of the ways I do this is through donating my unwanted clothes and items to the Salvation Army. (If you want to know why I specifically donate to them I can make a separate post.)
Here are some tips and tricks that help me decide what to give away.

~ 2-3 times a year I go though all of my clothes, books (the hardest thing for me to get rid of), and my stuff in general. Anything that I don’t wear, or doesn’t fit is thrown in a giveaway box. Anything broken or stained (and can’t be repaired) in thrown in my rag bag or trash.

~ I also keep a bag or box in my closet. That way if I see something I really don’t want anymore while I am putting laundry away I throw it in there. When the box fills up it goes to the Salvation Army.

~ If you go on a shopping spree and buy a bunch of new stuff go through your older stuff and see if there is anything you can part with now. I find that if I buy something new it makes it easier to get rid of the older item because I have a replacement.

~ Once something is in your box or bag don’t take it out. Think of it as already being gone.

Do you donate your clothes and unused items? If so where do you like to donate to?

Planner Decor - March Layouts

Sorry, this is a little late. Here are my layouts for the month of March. I really feel that I have found how I like to use my planner now. It's functional but pretty.

For march I went with a green theme for St. Patrick's Day and for the start of Spring. Here is a monthly overview. At the end of the month I started tracking when I went for walks.

The first week of March. I made each week green and paired it with a secondary color. This weeks secondary color was blue.

Second Week of March. I love the how the butterfly looks in the middle.

Third week of March. I was super sick this week but I like how I was able to decorate for St. Patrick's Day and the first day of Spring and make them coordinate.

Last week of March. This week was super busy with work and other fun activities so the end of the week got a little neglected. =(

Those are my layouts for March. To see last month's layout click here.

Which week was your favorite?
