Things to do with Spring Cleaning Junk
With spring season just around the corner, a lot of people will begin to gather up their energy to declutter around the house. For all those people who carry out this decluttering job once a year, there will be a ton of junk that you will come across. It may be stuff you have bought but never used, or things that have been over-used. What to do with the spring cleaning junk we find is always a tough question. One case or another you will want to, at some point, do something about these items.
Here is a list of tips that you may want to note down to make good use of the junk that you come across whilst spring cleaning:
Spring Cleaning Junk
Sell things online –
eBay is the best platform to sell used things online. It may be a good idea to put stuff that you do not use anymore online for sale. Why not make some good money out of these things? You can sell as many as 50 items or more on some platforms. It is an excellent way to capture a large audience online.
Hold a yard sale –
Why not invite people from your neighborhood over and hold a yard sale. It will be a good idea to socialize, feel fresh and you will be surprised at the kind of items that will get sold at yard sales. You don’t have to have a predefined price. You can even sell off these unwanted items at the best prices one wishes to offer for them when they are in front of you in person.
You have things lying around the house that could be put to good use if you donate them to those in need. Think about all the reward you would get for giving these things away to people. They would actually really appreciate getting them for free. You can pack them up in a box and keep them outside your house. Put a mark allowing people to understand that these items are free for anyone in need to pick up and use. In this way you will save taking any pain to actually go to donation houses and then the items away. Another idea would be to call up non-profit organizations and letting them know about the items you want to donate. They often arrange pick-up of these items, again saving you the trip.
Recycle and reuse –
This tip is most important for electronic items lying around the house. Most of which you would think are useless and throw away. Unused batteries, an old DVD player, or even a broken laptop in some cases can easily be recycled and put to good use if you put just a little bit of effort. Take these items to a local electronics shop. They would recycle these items for you and may even buy them off you.
Lastly, the most important tip of the day. Throw away items that you think are not worth donating, selling or recycling. There is no point keeping things that are visibly of no use at all. These items will be easily spotted as those having no value. Spotting them is simple – they would look completely worn out to the naked eye. Ripped or shredded shoes and clothes are pretty much an embarrassment to even donate. So just throw these items away and save everyone the trouble.
