How will you help others with National Clean Out Your Closet Week? A Guest Post by Catherine Carr of All In A Row

Catherine Carr is an organizer extraordinaire!  She could whip any closet in to shape in no time!  When I saw that it was National Clean Out Your Closet Week, I thought it would be fun to get her tips on what we could do to donate the unwanted things we find in our closets!  In addition to donation spots, she shared her wonderful list of consignment shops! Follow Catherine on Twitter or ring her at 214-236-0855 to have her stop by your house. Check out her guest post here:
