Day 301: Drop it like it's Hot, Drop it in the Box

On Day 301 I did something I have not done in a while, and that was to clean out my drawers and closets make a clothing donation to charity. The purging of unwanted clutter in my house was something I had made a blog entry out of before, and certainly not something new.

Dropping my old digs in the bright red bins that look like over sized library book receptacles in the parking lot of my neighborhood Kroger was Day 301's thing I've never done before, though.

There isn't a whole lot to say about this other than it's one of the easiest blog activities that I've ever done, and perhaps one of the more influential ones, assuming the donated items are given to people who sincerely need them.

Oh, and at 29-years old, I'm still as fascinated with these bins as I was when I was a child. The fascination is weird and difficult to explain but it's the same feeling that I have about laundry chutes, trash compactors and mail boxes. Like, who empties them? How do they work?

These bins are everywhere, and this task was easy. So go clean out your closet.
