Spring cleaning is high on my list of favorite things. (Crazy? Yeah, I know. But nothing quite beats the feeling of an organized closet, right?!) What’s perhaps NOT on my list of favorite things is the aftermath of a good closet cleanse: bagging and lugging all the giveaways downtown to the nearest Goodwill/SalvationArmy/charity of choice. Life without a car!!!
#firstworldproblems The subway requires multiple back and forth trips, and a cab + 10 bags is not that much easier (plus what cab driver wants to pull over for the bag lady?!)
Well guys, crisis adverted! As I was standing knee deep in clothes, a thought struck me: “I wonder if there’s a charity that will come pick all this up for me? Cause that would make a lot of sense…” A few Googles later, bam! I discovered The Little Sisters Of The Assumption, a charity who does just that.
I gave it a try myself, and have to say, super simple process. From point of contact, a date was scheduled for a pickup the following week, along with a time slot. If you have a doorman, you don’t even need to be home, they’ll pick the bags right up from your lobby. AND they leave you a tax receipt. Done and done!
