@PlanetBrandee Thanksgiving Mojo and How I Learned to Love the Sweatpants!

So here we go. The holiday season is about to rear its holly jolly head, winter. Although, we’re on a serious TiVo delay here in NYC in regards to snow. It’s trying to get chilly on us and we’re faced with PILES upon piles of food to eat. Not to mention your nagging relative asking “when you’re going to do XYZ life goal?”

Same for everyone? Well, not really. Not everyone has the blessings on their table. Although I’m sure most readers thought this would be a post about eating so much you’d need sweatpants -guilty as charge when it comes to my husband’s meatloaf- but it’s actually going to be about giving back and sharing the harvest. So let’s take a good look at how we can do that together, shall we?


Don’t tell me that the thought of holding on to all that STUFF you have is a turkey-lurkey good time. Cause’ immmastopyourighttheree! As your organization and close is, so is your mind. Clean out that old work wear that doesn’t fit you anymore, pile up the out-of-season textiles you’re cramming into drawers, and drop off a bag or two -or TEN- at Goodwill.

Every donation helps Goodwill to enable people to work and better their lives. And believe me, every dollar counts. So rally up a friend or two and rather than going Black-Friday crazy buying, actually give some away. Your closet, those who shop at, work for, and love Goodwill will thank you!

Here’s a quick punch list of what’s what. So grab mocha and your bags and head off to Goodwill. For more info on what’s closest to you check out the Goodwill NYNJ website

This time of the year, things that are useful to donate:

  • Old Christmas decorations! Come ON you don’t need THREE mini Christmas trees lol!
  • Heavy coats (mens, womens and childrens)
  • Gloves
  • Winter Boots
  • Hats and Scarfs
  • Warm blankets (cleaned)
  • Anything seasonally appropriate for this time of year

Hope to see you in the stores in the next few weeks. Follow my food, fun and travel treks on Twitter and Instagram @PlanetBrandee – till then, see you on the streets!
