Give Stuff Away

At Solve My Space, I think it’s always easier to get rid of something when you feel that someone else may be able to enjoy and use it.
Some ideas for your donations include:



Since 1982, Alternative Naissance, a community-based organization, whose goal is to “assist women and couples to experience the birth of their child as the most humane possible, while respecting their choices and rights.”

  1. Clothes for children, ages 0-2 years
  2. Maternity clothes
  3. Accessories for kids (strollers, exersaucers, etc.) but not toys or stuffed animals
