Have you ever found yourself in the process of purging your belongings and finally feeling the victory of having cleared out everything—but then having absolutely no idea where to bring all your stuff?

Fear not, because there are many places out there you can donate (or sell!) your items to, because there is always someone out there who might need it. You’ll not only have a cleaner space, you’ll also have a lighter heart.

She’s not called the legendary “Clutter Diva” for nothing—even though Aling Puring Dy is already more than 80 years old, she shows no signs of slowing down. Homeowners call her up so that she can pick up their de-cluttered items (be patient, she has a lot of clients), and then she sets an appointment to visit you, sort through the items, and cart them away to her segunda mano store.

ReStore is Habitat for Humanity’s non-profit donation center that accepts (and sells) donated furniture pieces, building materials, and décor to fund their building projects for communities in need.

If you have kids, you probably have loads of their slightly used, outgrown toys at home.

Want to earn a pretty penny from your items, instead? There are myriad selling groups out there, but these are the more reliable ones. Declutter MNL encourages you to divest of your unused items, and the admin occasionally posts de-cluttering tips, as well as callouts for donations to charities. Manila Furniture Buy and Sell is limited to the selling of furniture and décor within a certain price range (the finds here are fabulous!), while Pinoy Antiques, Junkshop Pickers Tiangge Buy and Sell focus on the more vintage-y, grungy, and bizarre collectibles. Don't forget to read and follow each admin's selling and buying rules, or else you'll be booted out!
