Organizing Tip #2

Use black trash bags for trash and white trash bags for donate.

When you are sorting through a room, you will end up with a big mess on the floor of your room.  One way to keep things from getting mixed up, or taking a whole bag of trash to the store to donate and throwing away that donate bag… is to color code your bags.

Buy black and white trash bags.  Keep your system consistent.  If you already use white trash bags in your house for your trash… then switch the colors.  Keep using the white ones for trash and use black for donate. You get the picture.

    I always keep a white Glad Flexible bag in my closet. When I come across an item that no longer fits, or haven’t worn in over a year it goes into the bag. Once the bag is full I drop it off at the nearest Goodwill box or store.

    Awesome! Good idea to put it in the closet. I actually tried to do the same with the kids, but they weren’t so good at this age at putting things in the bag themselves…. so for now I shelved that idea for now (with them)
