With summer nearly over, it’s important that I take a moment to extend my belated thanks for all the community support during the spring series of DeClutter For Good donation drives. Here they are in brief, with the 3 preceding posts providing more details with all the appropriate and very sincere thanks extended.

The drives were held as part of my pre-launch efforts at Time Well Spent, my mission-driven start-up that strives to help people help others and the environment. Overall, the spring drives were a big success and a great deal was learned along the way. Testing the concept is so important as I fine-tune my vision to help people clear the clutter that gets in the way of our ability to live our best life, keeping it out of the waste stream, and getting it into the hands of those in need through service organizations, while highlighting their good work along the way. In time, that clutter which can’t be re-used “as is” will be repurposed at Time Well Spent in the creation of new products that inspire all to consider their consumer impact when it comes to the mindful purchase of products that are both people- and earth-friendly… But, for now, DeCluttering For Good has already proven to be time well spent.
Keeping it short and sweet ~ to the degree that is possible for me ~ I’ve divided my summaries into several posts with heartfelt thanks to all involved and lots of links to click on to learn more and support others doing good work for those in need and the environment. Know that my thanks extend to each and every person who made a donation, even if it was only a single item. Contributing to the collective effort and helping to make a difference is what’s so empowering.
Carpe Diem ~ Nancy
