Declutter – Remove all unwanted items from your home,
Donate – to your local charity,
Deduct – Save money by claiming your donation on your tax return– Christina Scalise
Declutter your home by removing unwanted or unused clothing, furniture, and household items. By removing excess possessions, you reduce cleaning time, make it easier to find things, and provide a more relaxing, comfortable environment for you, your family, and your guests. Self storage units are perfect for storing those things that you use occasionally.
Donate to your local charity. Giving back is a win-win for everyone. As the old saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” While no longer useful to you, an item may have be very useful to someone else. Organizations that would love to have your second hand items include Goodwill, Rescue Mission, The Salvation Army and your local churches.
Deduct the donation by claiming it on your tax return. By claiming this itemized expense you will save money on the tax you owe. Most organizations will provide a tax receipt for your records. Your tax professional can counsel you on taking advantage of your donation.
Decluttering, donating and deducting can help create a happier environment, provide inward peace and help others. But, if you have items that you just aren’t ready to part with, you can still remove the clutter from your home and store it in our affordable, clean and secure self storage units.
Sounds great to us. How about you?
