Those extra daylight hours shining a spotlight onto the nooks and crannies of your home are just the motivation you need to clear out the clutter built up over a long winter. PennySaverUSA’s here with spring cleaning tips that will make the decision on what to do with your used items a breeze.
Now, let’s play Trash, Donate, or Sell!
- Anything broken that you don’t plan on repairing
- Extremely worn out used items that you don’t use anymore, e.g., clothes
- Used items you haven’t used in over a year with no sentimental or retail value
- Outdated used items that have no resale value (e.g., those old Richard Simmon’s tapes)
- Used items that are missing pieces required for use (e.g., board games and kitchen appliances)
- Anything that you haven’t used in over a year that doesn’t have a high resale value, but could be used by someone else
- Anything that you’d rather someone in need benefit from than sell
>> Clothes, appliances, school supplies, overstock canned goods
- Anything that has sentimental value, but that you would rather have enjoyed again by someone else
>> Children’s toys, maternity clothes, school books
- Anything that you haven’t used in over a year with high retail value
>> Gifts you never found a use for or duplicate appliances
- Clothes that aren’t worn out, but don’t look good on you or fit
- Books you’ve read, but won’t reread
- Things in boxes that you’ve never opened
>> Children’s toys
- Anything that you’ve replaced with a higher quality item
>> Kitchen appliances, lighting, furniture
If you’re looking at reselling clothing, a great place to check out is Buffalo Exchange, where you can trade in your clothes for cash or store credit. For higher dollar used items, like appliances and furniture, place a free classified ad on PennySaverUSA.com, or post a free garage sale ad to offload everything at once.
