Still love this list. Thank you for bringing it back!

Good point... Do either of these pick up decluttering donations or do I have to find a way to bring things there?

In Australia the Salvation Army collects...not sure where you are of course.

 

I just ring them and ask when the next collection date is for my area.

If you don't mind sharing--what are the 8 toys?  Also, how do you deal with ILs and friends who give your boys stuff?  We are new to the de-cluttering world, but I am already dreading Christmas...MIL does get DS some quality items, but also feels compelled for whatever reason to do big Dollar Store runs and we wind up coming home with as many as 70 additions to our already-too-full home.  I have started donating a lot of stuff, but whew...it's a lot of stuff.  When we go to their house (several times a month), she always gives us "presents" of things she wants to throw away, free calendars she's gotten in the mail, etc.  Typically, I either accept things and then donate/toss them, but I also sometimes just say "our house is really full right now" because I am tired of the dodges and the work it creates for me.  Any suggestions on how to deal with offers of stuff we don't need and gifts would be appreciated.

That is a fabulous list! As our kids are getting older, our 1100 sq feet is feeling smaller. I'm hoping to use them being out in the warmer weather as an advantage to declutter. I have a problem getting rid of stuff :(

I like the line on "Yes, I know you can melt them down and make block crayons out of them.  If you were going to do that, wouldn't you have already done it?"

 

Hahahahahahaha!  I'm going to take care of those stupid crayons today.  :)
