Where to Donate Bedding
Recently after I incorporated the Konmari method into my life, I immediately turned my house inside-out to determine what items I had that sparked joy. As I looked through the things I owned, I noticed how childhood items had been tucked away, forgotten about for years.
In the back of my closet, I found old bedsheets and pillowcases with Disney princesses and Barbie on them. Although my Bratz blanket sparked joy in my past-self, I had grown out of these sheets and wouldn’t use them.
I decided to donate my old blankets and sheets instead, in hopes that it can be a comfort for other kids like they were to me.
If you have gently used bedding you no longer use and can benefit someone else, here are a few places where you can donate them.
Note: Ask about policies on words or images and make sure that there aren’t any rips or stains.
