12. Donate items you’re holding onto “just in case”. Today we are going to donate all the items we have purchased in the last year that we are holding onto “just in case”.
When I brought Diamond to the vet with an infected paw last winter, I learned that I should be clipping my cat’s nails. I bought some clippers, but have been too scared to use them.
I tend to only buy things that I’m sure I’m going to use, so the clippers were the only thing I could think of.
13. Opt out of store email offers. Let’s clear out our inboxes so we spend less time sifting through the “sales” and more time getting to what really counts.
I unsubscribed to emails from Dick’s, Eddie Bauer, LeftLane Sports, Albemarle SPCA, Animoto and Etsy.
In addition to the clippers, I added some exercise DVDs, VHS movies and a portable CD player to the donation box.
