Spring Cleaning and Decluttering

If you have a lot of stuff you want to sell, it can be overwhelming to think about how to sort it and figure out the best place to sell it.  A good rule of thumb: If you haven’t used or worn something in at least two years, that might be a clue you really don’t need it. Go through each item in your house and put it through the two year test. Then, put all the items in a central location and sort them by category

I’ve always been a fan of The History Channel show Pawn Stars. In the show, pawn shop owner Rick, together with his father and his son (and a few other characters) place bids on some of the most unique collectibles and historical items people bring in that were hiding out in their basements and garages. Antique stores, pawn shops, and estate sale specialists can be a good place to sell gold, firearms, musical instruments and collectibles.

De-cluttering and selling used items can be overwhelming, but take it one step at a time. You’ll be overjoyed once you’ve gotten rid of old items you don’t really need. If you have items that didn’t quite sell, you could still donate them to a place like Goodwill and get a tax deduction on them. All in all, selling used stuff is a great way to live lighter and earn extra cash too!
