Episode Notes

This week we chat about all the various places you can donate your decluttered items to around Australia. We often get asked where to donate things and we both use many of these places on behalf of our clients and for our own pre-loved stuff. We would love to know where your favourite place to donate things to where you live. Come over to our Facebook page this week and share your brilliant knowledge with us all. We hope this episode has inspired you to look at your house with fresh eyes and find even more clutter to donate ;-)

If you do love the show and would like to show your support by becoming a patron, head over here to make a small monthly donation (as little as $1 a month) and know that any amount makes a huge difference to us being able to cover costs of producing this podcast.
