5 Quick Ways to Declutter Your Books
School’s out and summer has sprung.
Even if you and yours are done with school, it’s still a great time of year to clear out all those dust-collecting books and magazines that have piled up over the winter, to make space for what matters.
This week, tackle your shelves, nightstands, coffee tables - anywhere your reading materials pile up, and start clearing.
Used textbooks- out they go - for resale or donation.
Novels, non-fiction or biographies– box them up to donate to your local library, or resell at a secondhand bookstore or yard sale.
Make a “return” trip with overdue library books.
Magazines- that growing pile you keep thinking you’ll get to? You probably won’t. Those that are fairly current make a great donation to to nursing homes, retirement communities, or women’s shelters.
