Do You Already Have Gifts In Your Home???

Years ago I wrote a blog post on regifting and it caused a stir. People were divided. Some thought it was bad and others agreed with me and the benefits of passing items along to others. Many of the objections came from an emotional place.Some people felt it was disrespectful to regift something someone gave you. They bought it for you and you don’t care about them if you give it to someone else.
My view then and still today is from a Professional Organizer perspective. I go into so many homes, garages, offices and inevitably there will be gifts sitting there, unused, collecting dust and taking up space. I feel that’s not good. Why not let that item get used in the world by someone who will use it. And that’s the key to regifting or passing someone along to someone else, you have to really know if it is some useful to them. Don’t just pass things on to get rid of them.
It is not an indictment on the gift giver. Sometimes people will buy you things they think you might like or need. Or you get multiples of the same thing. And sometimes it is simply something you would never wear or like. It just happens. And you have to break the habit of feeling bad and just keeping it just in case they ask about it. Rarely that happens.
I have a person in my life with a shopping addiction, so there are times she will get me things I don’t want or need. That can be hard. So I take them and most of the time i get rid of them. She may ask once in the beginning about it and I politely just say it’s great . Lol Then she never asks again.
It’s your space and you are a grown up, you should have whatever you want in your home without having to explain or defend yourself. And all these items should go to people who can really use them.

Happy Christmas Tips From The Super Organizer!

Happy Christmas to everyone and I hope Santa brought you want you wanted!! Here a few tips for after the gift giving has happened:

 

Take all the gift boxes and if they are still in good use, fill them with stuff you don’t need and donate or give to a thrift store. Use them as holders for stuff. Kind of like the one in one out rule but a little more AND you are giving back! AND it reduces all the trash /recycling and clutter.

Of course throw away all broken ornaments, but here is one thing that is hard for people: an broken figurines, statues, wooden stars, etc…REALLY assess if its repairable AND are you going to take the time to fix it or have it fixed? If not and be honest with yourself, throw it out.

You want to really keep the holiday stuff manageable as you put it away till next year!!

New Years is next!!
