Desperate Housekeeping for busy mums and dads

From one mother to another

Luxembourg – Giving 2 Someone – Please Help

As some of you know, I recently moved to Luxembourg to start a new life with my husband and kids. As we had the chance to move with all our belongings, I got almost everything packed and sent to our new home. As I was unpacking, I realised that it just didn’t make sense to keep everything, since there were several things we just don’t use a lot. In fact, it just clicked in my mind that it is time to make a change in my life and live with what we really need.

So than I made a list of the home stuff I should get rid off and once again I realised that was quite a lot. that stuff could really mean something for someone else.

As I am quite new in Luxembourg, I don’t have the local contacts to charity associations. So I posted on some local web forums and I got quite surprised with the amount of people who are really in need for everything you can imagine. I received several e-mails from people who came in search of a big dream with little more than their personal clothes. But I have just a few items to give away.

That’s why I writing today for you guys: if you live in Luxembourg, please do some decluttering at home and see what stuff do you have to give away. From pans to bowls, from furniture to clothes… Everything, since it’s in reasonable conditions. for example, there are 2 families in need for a washing machine and some cabinets. Than send me an email for

Having a list of who has what, we can than arrange the contacts and delivering within the receiver.

Please note that I am not a charity associations, I’m just someone who want to help other people…

  3. Hi Rute – what a wonderful initiative!! You are truly amazing! I do have some stuff to give away (unfortunately we’ve done most of the de-cluttering already though) like a new but rather basic table. We used it before our container arrived as a dining table. I’ll check the size and let you know. Also – 4 folding chairs that was bought for the same reason and one large mattress …

    • Hi Liesel! Thank you so much for your kind words! 🙂 I will definitely find a good home for your items. Please let me know the measures of the table and the matress and then I’ll post an update on the donations list.
