Time to give it away

I can’t believe it’s already time for the 4th annual Give Your Stuff Away Day on Saturday May 12. It’s amazing how my “neighbor,” Mike Morone, has taken an idea and turned it into a worldwide event. Mike’s idea of putting stuff you no longer want or need at the curb for others to take, could help millions of people, while reducing clutter and shrinking landfills.  In a difficult economy, this event can spark more giving, reduce municipal expenses, and boost the economy a bit.

Consider what you have to give away and be sure to also check out the Give Your Stuff Away Day Facebook page.


The 14th of May is the day to give it away

My “neighbor” (he probably lives within 3 miles of me) Mike Morone is the founder of Give Your Stuff Away Day, a great idea.  This is the third year for this event which has gotten worldwide attention.  I wrote a blog post about it last year.

His website, giveyourstuffaway.com, explains how it works. The goal is to unclutter your life and give items to someone else who would actually use them.  This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, May 14.  Also be sure to check out his Facebook page.

We all have stuff we don’t use anymore.  I challenge you to find 5 things to give away that day and keep them out of a landfill a little bit longer.
