I have been asked by you to write on thrifting, but as I think about the subject it seems almost too simple. I don't think anyone needs to be inspired to thrift in 2011. Thrifting is, of course, the practical alternative in a downturn economy. It just makes sense to shop at the lowest price point and to re-purpose that which has been used before. And, as much as I could treat the subject from my own personal perspective, I feel the need instead to focus on the issue of donating.
Spring is right around the corner. As I come out of my winter hibernation, I find myself experiencing the following symptoms: * The urge to clean my space * The need to clear the clutter * The desire to repurpose the stuff I no longer use Do you experience one or more of these symptoms? Fear not — you, just like me, simply have a case of the spring cleaning bug! Gladly, Goodwill® has two new partners that have joined the Donate Movement to help us declutter our lives and help those in need in our community.
