5 Reasons Moving Is The Perfect Time To Donate

1. You Get To “Start Fresh”

Moving is part of the process of starting a new chapter of your life.  It can be a great time for a fresh start, and you don’t want to drag any unnecessary items along with you to your new life and home!  This means it’s a great opportunity to donate some of your old things to a charity organization (he. Doing so helps others that are in need, and can also help you in multiple ways.

2. Helping Others Feels Good

Your donation items are helping others who are less fortunate than yourself. There are hundreds of different charity organizations out there who are waiting in anticipation for your generous donations, and they will put your stuff to good use!  When you donate, you allow someone who is less fortunate the opportunity to use your items, and help generate revenue for charities that aid those in need.   Many charities will take your donations on the spot if you drop them off, and others will send a donation truck out to pick up your donation items.

3. Less Clutter Makes The Move Easier

Your donation to different charities not only helps others, but it brings self-satisfaction as well. Moving anywhere is a vital time in your life. You’re starting out new and fresh, and you might as well take advantage of the situation by cutting back on your unnecessary clutter by donation items. You’d be amazed at how much easier the entire moving process is if you just get rid of  what you know you don’t want.

4. Save Money In Your Moving Costs

Consider moving into your new residence and your new life with only the items you absolutely want to keep. Remember, a lot of items are replaceable, and it might even be cheaper to buy new than to move old. Donating items that are easily replaceable and don’t hold much value before the move will cut back on the overall cost of moving materials. These materials range from boxes to packaging and tape to room in the moving truck itself.  You’ll save a bundle of money if you only move the things you are sure you want.

5. Save Yourself Time

Donating items at the time of moving will help you save much time in the long run. You won’t find yourself wasting time packing items you don’t necessarily need, and you won’t have to be stuck hauling things around that you don’t want anymore. Other people will find your items useful and will be more than appreciative to be able to use them. All it takes is a few minutes to get everything together. Find a charity in your area you want to donate to (Or use Pick Up Please!) and get the items donated to them. You’ll be helping yourself and others all at the same time.

If you have a move coming up and are going to be starting that new life chapter, remember these tips!  Make it easier on yourself, get a fresh start, and help others at the same time by donating your unwanted items to charity before you move.
