So I've decluttered – Where in Cary, NC can I take my stuff?

We’ve all heard it…before selling your house you need to declutter.

And, here at LG Real Estate, we have a process where we preview each of our Cary, NC listings before they go on the market and suggest to the sellers what needs to be removed.  But, what then?  I thought I would take a moment and just list a few of our favorite donation organizations in Cary, NC.

  1. I am a professional organizer and I developed a list of resources for donations. Of course, one of my most often drop-offs is Goodwill. I usually take my computer items to http://www.purpleelephant.org and books to the used bookstore. If you have items that are in good condition and would like to see someone needy receive the item you can visit http://www.freecycle.org and for selling items you can use Craigslist. Old textbooks can go to the prisons, churches can use toys for the nursery. Drama departments can benefit from your vintage clothing, old costumes and formal wear. Hospitals and clinics can take your old magazines. Veterinary clinics will accept old blankets and towels.

    Hope this is helpful. I have more if you don’t see it on this list, please call 919-465-1094.
