If you’ve ever feuded with a spouse over hanger space or drawers, or turned your house upside down trying to find the summer clothes you stashed last fall, you might be a prime candidate for a closet conversion.
Turning a spare room into a walk-in closet is not a huge task, and it can reap instant rewards. “People want all their stuff in one space,” says Angel Martin, co-owner and senior design consultant at Affordable Closets Plus in Bangor, Pennsylvania. Martin’s firm is one of countless companies that will quiz you on your needs, measure your space and install a spacious walk-in closet in what was once a spare bedroom, a nursery or that home gym you swore you’d use but somehow never did.
You can also opt to do the project yourself, using materials from a hardware or home improvement store. Which method you choose will depend on your needs, your budget and the kind of look you want to achieve.
Top 3 Reasons to donate your usable clothing and household items to local nonprofit organizations:
1. De-Cluttering & Organizing Your Space !
When people clean out their closets, cabinets, garages and other personal space areas, it can provide an overall better sense of well-being and a sense of peace. Even one bag of donations makes a HUGE difference! Donating is the ultimate form of recycling. Start purging today… it’s a great habit to adopt!
2. Giving Back LOCALLY Makes a Difference to Others!
It’s very gratifying to give to those in need. There are many local nonprofit organizations that offer FREE PICK UPS from your home! One’s person clutter is another person’s treasure. Help improve the lives of people in our community.
3. Tax Benefits!
The tax benefits can be a good reason to donate. Most charitable acts are given tax rebates by governments all around the world and it is a good way to save up on some taxable income too.
