Tomorrow is Earth Day! So, in honor of this special day, I have decided to devote a whole week of posts to making the world a better place. In the last couple of years, I have slowly been trying to help the planet more. We have started recycling more, donating more, and using old things in new ways (ex. shoe boxes as storage).
Each day this week, I will be sharing different things that will help you become more “green.” Today, is all about donating.
I have talked about donating several times on this little blog of mine. If we can’t sell it, we donate it! Right now, I have about 8 garbage bags full of miscellaneous items from around my house that I need to take to Goodwill. Did you notice the problem in that sentence?!?! I have all of these items to donate and I have NO IDEA what they are or the dollar amount of my donation.
Usually, I will throw out a number to the worker at Goodwill. That number could be a high one or low one, but this chick has no idea which one. So, my goal is to get better at tracking my donations. I am sure my accountant would appreciate that too. To help with this process, I have made a nice printable that I will fill out when I am getting a donation together. Once I finish filling it out, I will make a copy for the company and keep the original for my records. Please feel free to print out the pdf to help with your donation tracking as well.
