Tips for De-cluttering Your Home and Making a Profit
A wise man once stated, “you probably only need about 20% of whatever you own.” In fact, if you were to roam through your home and inventory things you don’t need, things you don’t want, and things you’ve been meaning to get rid of for years, you’d probably discover that the 20% rule is quite true.
By getting rid of excess baggage, you will be amazed at how much better you feel. Also, you may be quite amazed at how much cash you can gain in the process! We hope the following tips will help you de-clutter your home, while helping reap the benefits of your property:
- Organize your garage. Too many times we hold on to items that we think we will use one day, but they end up falling apart in the garage. This includes everything from furniture, to old bikes, motorcycles, cars, and exercise equipment to tools. Comb through all the items in your garage and research their worth. Antique estate pieces can be sold to pawnshops or sold online for quite a bit, along with other valuable items.
- Clean out your jewelry box. You may be the possessor of old jewelry that you never wear. Instead of hiding it away in a box, you may want to sell to a high-end pawn shop. With gold and precious metals prices soaring, you may never have a better chance at gaining top dollar when you sell gold, silver or platinum.
- Empty your bonus closets. Why is it that we tend to fill our extra closets to the brim? Instead of clearing them out, we hold on to each and every item for security. You can get rid of and possibly sell electronics gear, old records, clothing, collectables, music and more.
- Get rid of excess books. Are your bookshelves teeming with books you have already read and/or may never read? Dare yourself to cut your book collection down. Once you determine which ones you want to eliminate from your collection, you can sell to a used bookstore or online.
Once you go through the process of de-cluttering your home and your life, you will not only feel energized, you will have some extra cash in your pocket. Plus, you’ll develop a great relationship with high-end Huntington Beach pawn shops that you trust!
