Give Meaning to Spring Cleaning

Chantal Joaquin-Starrett | April 27, 2018 @ 12:00 AM

Driving around Murfreesboro, I can see colorful wreaths decorated on doors, flowers sprouting here and there, and trees budding with the awakening of Spring. During this time of the year, I like to get do some Spring cleaning and donating.  

So with spring cleaning upon us, it's time to rotate & donate. I always have my smaller closet size storage unit to organize things seasonally. I try to stick to my self-imposed rule, “if I haven’t used it in the last 3 years, it should be passed on to someone else to enjoy.” Here are some of my favorite donation centers and food banks (for donating all year long). They help me "give meaning to spring cleaning".
