Recycle wisely: Pre-Holiday Closet Cleanout!

As you begin your decorating plan for all the holidays, don’t cringe when you think about pulling everything out.  Why not make some extra storage room in all your closets now.  It’ll be so much easier to put decorations away with all the extra space you’ve created.  Being organized is a GREAT feeling whether you are moving or not.

 Fact:  Did you know the average American throws away 68 lbs. of clothing per year!
