How often do you purge items in your house?
Do you think you would be more likely to purge items (and thus cut down on clutter) if you had a household donation station?

Here are a few articles on donation stations:
The Red Chair Blog: DIY Storage For "Transient" Items
How To Make Weekly Household Purges Happen : I'm an Organizing Junkie

Do you think a donation station is something you would like to implement in your house (if you don't already have one)?

I love this! I definitely want to start this soon! People generally only purge about once or twice a year, and it ends up being an event. Kind of like what I am doing now! Since we are moving, it is turning into a big event to organize, toss, and figure what is needed, and what is not needed in our house. Because I am moving, I would like to start this immediately. This is also something that I would like to continue in my house going forward! Thanks for sharing! Great idea!

Definitely agree with that statement! I think when we lived in our old house we purged even less than this. It was a HUGE task when we moved into our new house. I purged a lot of stuff packing everything up and then again as I brought it over to the new house. I still have a ton of stuff to go through as a lot of the stuff couldn't really be put away where we were still finishing our basement.

How often do you purge items in your house? Not nearly enough! I would like to be able to do it weekly while I am doing my weekly cleaning.

Do you think a donation station is something you would like to implement in your house (if you don't already have one)? Yes!! I just need to find a place to put it. I would LOVE to have one that has the different boxes like in the first post. I would also like to have it in a place where I can see it, but at the same time it needs to be in a place where the kids can't get into it.
