'One man's junk is another man's treasure'

Ten bin liners, two big boxes and mountains of bedding, we had a clear out. I normally de clutter my room quite often but this time it was the whole house. Move over Spring clean, It's an Autumn clean! My mum and I have wanted to make the house look nicer for a long time now, and people say 'money isn't everything' but it does really help. You can't re decorate with no money can you and the first step is the long awaited bathroom refurb! We decided having a clear out of things we no longer need would make the house look tidier and also making other people happy, by donating it all to charity. After our clear out, over dinner we both said how good we felt by cleaning and clearing. (Obviously we clean the house all the time but a deep clean, top to bottom.)  Looking at all of the things we got rid of made us think how lucky we are and how much we take for granted. Our 'Junk' could be someone else's treasure. Why would we need three electric whisks? Four pairs of old hair straighteners? Millions of ornaments in a dark cupboard?  Bed lining and duvets that had never been used? Some of these things, people do not have the luxury of, and here we are never using these items!

What is your favourite charity you donate to?
