Enter our first ever giveaway, a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate sponsored by Bloggin’ Mamas! All you have to do is sign up and donate some of your stuff to Goodwill to help fund job training! #DonateStuffCreateJobs
I am a clothes hoarder. There, I said it. I have a serious emotional attachment to clothes that go back 10 years. Clothes that I haven’t worn in 10 years. Some of it is warranted. My Grandmother crocheted amazing clothes. Those I will cherish forever and hope that my daughter appreciates and wears them. Some items are vintage and very well-made that they withstand the test of time in style and quality. But, there are a lot of items that need to go! Pre-kids and husband I had the luxury to keep it all and hope for that one occasion to revive it. But now, there is just not room.
I recently became aware of a Capsule Wardrobe? Have you heard of it? This may be a great motivator for donating your old clothes and household goods to make room for more style and ease when getting ready, and packing?I am honestly being buried by clothes and my unhealthy emotional attachment to so many pretties (that I don’t even wear) is creating chaos in our family! Plus making packing near impossible.
So, I challenge myself this week to part with clothes that are not useful to me anymore, but can really be useful in creating jobs and giving clothing to other people! (Too bad I can’t enter into the contest)! Details below!

Donate stuff. Create jobs.
There’s never a bad time to clear the clutter out of your home or garage or to do a wardrobe purge. When you donate your stuff to Goodwill, the revenue from the sale of your donations helps fund job training and placement opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages directly in your community. That’s cleaning with a purpose.
Goodwill in currently running the “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs” campaign. Thanks to the programs and support services made possible by donations of clothes and household items, more than 261,000 people earned jobs in 2013 – that’s one person finding a job every 27 seconds of every business day. So you’re literally donating your stuff AND helping to create jobs.
Check out this quick PSA:
You can even calculate how much your donation helps your local community by using Goodwill’s Donation Impact Calculator. Simply input the items you’re donating to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation, financial planning classes, and other services you’ve helped provide someone facing challenges to finding employment.
