Can you believe spring will be here in less then 28 days? I am so ready for spring after a cold and icy winter filled with snow, sleet and freezing rain.

My wife and I are trying to get an early start on spring cleaning as we try to get rid of some the clutter, mess and piles (and piles) of clothes and shoes that seem to be all over the house.

Of course, one of the major positive effects of donating is the feeling that you're helping someone who is less fortunate.

1. Lupus Foundation of America - Good for clothes and usable household items.

3.  Humane Society of Ocean City - This one is for the pets. Right now they are only taking online donations.

4Recycle Nation - Good place to drop off old phones and computers.
