Welcoming Spring by “Right Sizing”

June 27, 2023

Co-owners Amber Beltran and Dawn Brooks are committed to helping you become clutter free in 2023.  We are excited to introduce March’s Clutter-Free focus: welcoming spring by “right sizing”.

Donating Excess Items

March is a time of miraculous transition from winter to spring. We encourage you to proactively participate in this transition. Be inspired by the increased sunlight to release excess items. Three items that seem universally in surplus in homes are blankets, tee-shirts, and paper memorabilia. 

Letting go of blankets can do much good in our community. Pocatello Animal Shelter gladly accepts blankets in any condition,  Aid for Friends is eager to receive used blankets of twins size or bigger in good condition. For those outside of Bannock County, please check with your local animal shelters and homeless shelters for their acceptance of blankets.

Upcycling Clothing with Memories

For your t-shirts that hold meaningful memories; however, you no longer wear, We suggest upcycling many of them into one item. Amber had 16 Idaho State University (ISU) t-shirts created into a snuggly quilt by sending them to projectrepat.com. This company’s craftsmanship was excellent. Dawn created a Bengal Spirit scarf to be worn at ISU events. We have seen several t-shirt blankets created from individuals’ sports jerseys and used as a wall hanging in an office or family room.

Paper Memorabilia

Convert your cherished paper memorabilia into scrapbooks or hardbound books with journaling entries that identifies who created the item and the significance of the item. The advantage of developing a hardbound book via an on-line publishing company is that you can gift the book to more than one loved one.

We love to assist clients in all aspects of developing scrapbooks or photo books. We are excited to announce we now have an Epson Perfection V850 Pro scanner. Contact us today to get started on converting all of your paper memorabilia into digital files which can be used to create treasured photo books.
