$3100 is the value of the unused stuff the average American has, according to a survey by EBay/Nielsen. If you are an above-average shopper, collector, storer, etc of stuff, you may have even more.
If one of your New Year's Resolutions is to give back and do more for your community, or to clean up the clutter, I challenge you to do both this year. It is easier than you think!
Here are a few ideas to get started:
1) Crap-valanche Attack:
Crap-valanche definition: overloaded, avalanche-like piles that are at high risk of falling and spreading all over
2) Treasure Hunt:
According to the EBay/Nielsen survey, there are roughly 50 items that make up the majority of the $3100 of unused stuff you have. This challenge is about finding them!
3) Child's Play:
This is a great way to teach kids the joy of giving. When you search together for needed donations and read about the impact together, you have a chance to talk about how even children can make a difference.
