It seems that every day more requests for charitable donations arrive in the mail.  Though many are worthy causes that I do support, it becomes confusing as to whether I made a donation earlier in the year. Now I put all the requests I receive in a folder. When I am ready to make my donations, usually in the spring, I open the folder and pull out the charities I want to support and write all the checks out at once.   I toss all the duplicate requests and charities I do not support.  The benefits are that all future requests can be tossed when received because I know the charities I do support have already received my donation and when tax time comes all my tax deductible donations are listed together in my checkbook register.

I hope this helps you. Let me know what you think.
