Pay It Forward: Donate Your Extras

31 Days of Home Office Organizing TipsTip #23: Pay It Forward: Donate what you’re not using

(Part of the 31 Days of Home Office Organizing Tips)

Got extra stuff in your home office?  What about that extra monitor, keyboard or filing cabinet?  If you’ve embarked on the task of cleaning out and organizing your office, chances are you will have some extras hanging around.  Before you just toss things in a big dumpster, consider donating them.  Why?

Tax Deductions.  Your donations are most likely tax deductible.   Use the ItsDeductible website to find out the value of your items.

You’ll have more space.  If you have extras in your home office, I’ll bet it taking up valuable space.  Think of the other uses you have for the space… like admiring a wonderfully empty corner.  😉

Someone else could need what you’re not using.  Your donated items might be taking up space in your closet or floor, but they could very well be useful to someone else.   Think of it that way, and you might have less problem parting with your stuff.

What can you donate?
