Whether you're already organized, or are just getting around to it, here are some links to organizing resources that may help: organizing magazines, product suppliers, Edmonton-area recyclers, and charity services that take donations.
Have you come across a local product, supplier, or website that has had a particularly positive impact on your life?
If you have something to share, Stacy would love to hear about it.

un-usable items BURDENS the charity in the form of disposal costs.
help yourself by keeping it simple! Choose no more than 2 or 3 places where you can dispose
of most of your items. Avoid complicating things by sending only a few items to many different
