July 15 is National Give Something Away Day

This day is perfect for any Pittsburg, CA homeowner who is getting ready to put their house on the market. It’s also perfect for anyone who is planning to move.

donate furnitureDe-cluttering and ridding your house of everything you no longer want, need, and use is a smart first step in getting a house ready for market, and in preparing for a move. Who really wants to pack and transport furniture, toys, household goods, and clothing that they know won’t be used in their next home?

Instead, look around Pittsburg, CA for a thrift shop that supports a cause you believe in. Then donate furniture and household goods to them.

If you have excess towels and blankets, give them to an animal shelter. They always need more.

Check local abuse or homeless shelters to see if they could use donations of clothing – for both adults and children. They probably do, and they could possibly use toys as well.

You’ll make yourself feel good…
