Thank you to everyone who participated in the KonMari-Inspired Donation Challenge. It was so great to see all the pictures of the decluttering process and hear all the lessons learned. There were 30 bags of clothes and shoes that were donated to charities across multiple states. Thank you everyone for your time and generosity!
Great pictures and quotes from our participants:
“It was surprisingly liberating!”
“I have a tank top problem!!!! 84 tank tops wth! Need to purge!”
“It was ridiculous the amount of clothes I had and it really made me think about why I buy clothes. I came to the realization that a lot of items were purchased because I thought they were a good deal as opposed to me truly loving the item.”
“I even re-discovered $140 cash that I had “hidden” in one of my drawers!”
“I now have 1 clean and organized closet, 9 dresser drawers that close, 2 charitable tax deductions, and countless new outfit ideas (now that I can see the possibilities).”
“What a great way to kick off the season of gratitude and giving.”
“OMG!! <She> has started on her closets, it’s a disaster.” – husband of one of the participants
“You really inspired me and then I also inspired a few of my friends!!!!”
Congratulations to our winners!
Most Donated: Lauren D. from Raleigh, NC with 8 bags of clothing and shoes.

If you are never happy with the clothes in your closet or if you love to buy something new, tidying and only keeping the items that you really love may make you realize that you have everything you need. This could have a huge positive impact on your budget and expenses.
