Moving into a new home is a good opportunity to remove clutter and purge items you no longer need. But before you drop off anything and everything at your local charity shop like Goodwill, do one more thing: Ask them what they need and don’t need. A visit to your local store will result in specific requests and inside information on items they won’t take. Remember, when the store gets trash, they have to dispose of it, which means valuable labor hours and cash are wasted sending your unwanted items to the landfill. A little homework goes a long way.
