Every year, Darryle Pollack made the same New year’s resolution: to clear out her clutter. This year, 2009-- she made the same resolution with a twist, and started a blog:
Clutter is complicated. Not just the clutter itself, but why we collect it. I thought it would be easier to let go of my clutter if I knew where it was going. And that’s the story behind Cluttercast.
I post pictures of my clutter, and tell the stories behind each item. People comment if they want something, and then I give it all away to someone who wants it. It’s a way to give some goodwill out into the universe at a time when people want to help others but don’t always have ways to do that. It’s a great solution for clutter. Plus it helps the environment and the economy and everyone wins.
