Tips for Getting Rid of Your Old Furniture

Nothing can spoil the joy and excitement of receiving new furniture like the thought of what you will do with the old furniture. Unless you have oodles of space, it’s a decision that you’re going to have to make prior to receiving your new furniture. Not to worry. There are actually plenty of ways that you can make room for your new furniture or simply to make some room.

If you must get rid of the old furniture, for whatever reason, you basically have two choices:

Selling Your Old Furniture

One of the oldest methods of selling used furniture that remains effective today is to post a classified ad in your local paper. With the overwhelming access to and use of electronic media, the method has changed a bit. Now, it would probably work to your advantage to place an online classified ad. You can even >place a free ad on PennySaverUSA.com. Still use your local classifieds paper, but if they offer an online version, place an ad in both.

Sell your old furniture
Another popular way to sell your old furniture is to have a garage sale. You can be as elaborate as you wish. You can arrange the used furniture items you want to sell in your garage and simply open the garage on the day of the sale. Many people prefer to move the items to the driveway. While you don’t have to place an online ad announcing your garage sale, it is a good idea. Place a free classified ad to promote your garage sale.

Giving Your Old Furniture Away

Of course, you can always give your old furniture away. This option may work best for you if you have a natural aversion to anything associated with “selling” or you prefer other means of unloading your used furniture.

The Salvation Army, Goodwill Industries, and Vietnam Veterans of America are very popular non-profit organizations that accept used furniture donations. If you search your local area, you are sure to find others. Although you are donating the used furniture, it is a good idea to make it presentable. Charitable donations are typically deductible (check the IRS website for details). If you want to deduct your donation, be sure to request a receipt.

Another method of giving away your used furniture is to simply place it in your driveway with a sign that states something similar to “Free Furniture.” If people are interested, they will figure out a way of transporting the furniture to where they want it.

In the end, there are several ways to get rid of your used furniture fast. Which ever method you try, you are sure to discover truth to the old saying that “One man’s loss is another man’s treasure.”

Steals of the Week: Discount items to help you host Thanksgiving

Steals of the Week went on a brief hiatus, but it is back this week and better than ever, with discount items to help you host an amazing Thanksgiving without breaking the bank.

Before you even begin to think about the actual Thanksgiving feast, it’s important to make sure your place is tidy and clean. One of the best ways to do that is with a steam cleaner. The first of our Steals of the Week used items is the VAPamore MR-100 steam cleaning system from a seller in New Port Richey, Fla. It is being offered for only $200 and comes in the original box.

Now that you have your home cleaned up, it’s necessary to make the dining room a bit spiffier. A chandelier should do the trick. There is a Tommy Bahama Chandelier Hanging Ceiling Light available for the very reasonable price of $250 in Delray Beach, Fla.

With your house looking fresh and stylish, it’s about time to focus on the actual Thanksgiving feast. This next Steals of the Week entry is designed to help you do that. A seller in Carmichael, CA is willing to part with a brand new NuWave Infrared Convection Oven (1,500 watts) for just $139.99 or the best offer. While that’s a good price already, we suggest negotiating it even lower as there should be some room for the seller to come down.

The last piece of the puzzle for having an amazing Thanksgiving is the table setting, thus our final two Steals of the Week discount items. There is a gorgeous dish set for sale in Garden Grove, CA for only $10. It includes a dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, cup and saucer for four people (a total of 20 items).

Ordinary napkins just don’t get the job done if you want to have an amazing Thanksgiving, you need linen ones. A seller in Los Angeles, CA is here to help. For only $10, you can get six brand new embroidered Linen Tea Napkins from Sundew Linens.
