+ Spring Organizing Tips For Your Home: Where Should You Take Your Decluttering?

Professional Organizer Gives Spring Organizing Tips for Your Home:

Decluttering, Getting Organized & Celebrating EARTH DAY!

Professional Organizer in San AntonioIn our line of work as a professional organizer in San Antonio, we encourage people to free themselves of as much clutter as possible in as “green” a way as possible. Since Earth Day is coming up on April 22, we thought we’d list a few resources that will help you with spring organizing your home and will spare landfills from lead, mercury and other toxins. Some charge a fee, which is a small price to pay for ridding your home of annoying clutter and saving the earth. Some are non-profits, so be sure to ask about a receipt for donations.

 Resources from Your San Antonio Professional Organizer

 

Goodwill - declutter, donate, change livesQuick Fix: Declutter + Donate = Change Lives

Goodwill of San Antonio accepts almost anything under the sun – even computers and electronics – but not building and hazardous materials. Save the earth, get rid of clutter, and help others in the process!  Goodwill might not have the words “women” or “children” in their title, but boy do they help the community! If you’re not sure how they use your donations to help, watch this short video or read this brief article.

 

Get It All Hauled Off:

Rubbish Works - rubbish removal on demandRubbish Works picks up everything you no longer want in your home or office and delivers it to the appropriate places: donations to Goodwill, building materials to Habitat for Humanity, recycling to the appropriate centers. The last resort is the landfill. They offer fantastic customer service and are less expensive than leading competitors. You don’t even have to drag items to a certain spot – just point, and they’ll pick it up. Be sure to ask for Living Order’s Earth Day special – good in San Antonio and Austin only.
