Declutter your home to give back!

I am sure you have noticed how much clutter you have at home—especially with the holidays just finishing. Nothing helps you feel like you have some control of your life then taking time to declutter your home. There are many charities and non-profits in Calgary that need everyday household items to distribute to families (and animals!) who would not have the items otherwise. We have compiled a list of different charities you can donate your items to help others:
