The Specifics

If you're clearing out clutter don't just throw it out, see if it can be donated or sold on for someone else to love.

Complete this challenge for every item or bag of items, such as clothes, that you don't send to a landfill.

Give It To A Good Cause

If your clothes, furniture or electrical items are still in good condition you can donate them to a local charity. Sites such as https://reuse-network.org.uk/ can collect, so you don't even need to leave your house.

Give It Away

Websites such as https://uk.freecycle.org/ or https://www.ilovefreegle.org/ let you list your items for free to be given away.

Sell It On

Make a little coin by posting your unwanted items online. GumTree, Facebook Marketplace and Craiglist are just a few examples of where your items can find loving new homes while also earning a little cash.

Rent It Out

If you're not ready to fully let go of an item but don't mind someone else using it while you're not, then try https://fatllama.com/. Your items are covered for damage up to £25,000 and it helps out those in your local community that need something but don't want to fork out on buying new.

Repair It

How about passing it on to yourself? If an item is broken and you can't donate or sell it, then you may be able to give it a new lease on life by fixing or repurposing it. If you're not very handy try and find a community that is and gain the skills. Check out https://repaircafe.org/ as one example, but there may be other similar groups in your area too.
