what you need to know about giving items away
As you prepare to downsize or move, give your loved ones unique and meaningful gifts! Instead of throwing away or donating cherished memories, gift those special items to someone you love.
When sorting belongings:
Have ziplock bags and sharpies at the ready
Put special items in bags and label them for specific people
Write a note or story about the item to share its meaning with your loved one
By sorting your belongings in this way, you can give away items in a thoughtful manner. Not only will you minimize your belongings, but you will also share those cherished memories with those who will appreciate the story.
