Clear out Handbags and Help Another Person

The icing on the cake with organizing is being able to find a really good *new* home for items that someone is getting rid of. Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting the owner of Heaps of Handbags, Carrie Gendron. Heaps of Handbags takes donated hang bags and cleans them up to re-sell. The proceeds of the sales go to fight human trafficking. Not only are you clearing your cluttered closet by getting rid of the handbags you don’t really use, but by donating them to Heaps of Handbags, you are reusing items and helping your fellow man. To learn more about Carrie’s business or to donate bags, check out her website at
