Decluttering before Christmas is always a great idea. Making space for the new. Seeing what you have and what would be a useful addition.
Not sure what to do with the unwanted toys. Well here is a brilliant idea.
Well yesterday saw the launch of the Argos Toy Exchange with Barnardo’s: a campaign that encourages families to donate unwanted toys in the run up to Christmas which will then be sold at Barnardo’s to raise money for underprivileged children around the UK.
Recent research by Argos which discovered that there are 474 million un-played with toys in the UK, and 13 million ending up in landfill every year, many of which are in perfectly good condition to go to a new home.
To donate toys to the Argos Toy Exchange, visit your local Argos or Barnardo’s store from Wednesday 17October 2012. Donations will be accepted at stores until Tuesday 27 November 2012.
