Clutter Control: Giveaway v. Throwaway

On my morning walk, I spotted this apt book title atop a pile of curbside donations. It was good to see this particular "clutter" bound for a new home instead of an old landfill. As always, giving away beats throwing away in every way.

Recognizing our clutter can be someone else's treasure is a subject I like to talk about over at the Garbology Facebook page. I'm happy so many old and new friends are stopping by there every day to share their ideas on the "4 Rs" - reusing, recycling, repurposing and refusing (to bring stuff into the house in the first place).  Got an upcycling suggestion or trash tale of your own? Bring 'em here.
