We at Big Rocks Organizing want to help you make space for what truly matters. The most time-efficient way to rightsize and clear out what you no longer need is to donate your items, however, sometimes you need a little extra incentive to say goodbye to items that are not entirely working for you.

Thankfully, the Portland metro area has no shortage of consignment shops and other resources to cash in your unwanted items. Many are happy to answer questions over the phone, and in addition, some will even appraise your items just based on the pictures you send to them, making it even easier for you to align your space with your values!
