If you're anything like the millions of people binge watching Tidying Up on Netflix, you've probably been inspired by Marie Kondo and the KonMari method of tidying. Her first lesson to those looking to tidy is to tackle the closet. She encourages her clients to take every article of clothing they have and set it in a big pile to get an idea of how many items they truly have. The next step is to pick up the clothes, one by one, and see if the item "sparks joy" for them. If it doesn't, it's time to go!

Check out this list of places you can donate your items that will certainly "spark joy" to someone who needs it!
