Prepping for a Move by Decluttering? Here's a list of places to donate your preloved items.

MOVING SERIES: DECLUTTERING : PLACES TO DONATE

UPDATED 25th January 2023

Remember, you don't have to be a Marie Kondo to achieve the perfect tidy and organised space. The right motivation should get you started.
