Have you sold your current home or just purchased a new home and the closing day is creeping near? Chances are you are gathering boxes and beginning to get things packed up. If you’re like most of us, you’ve acquired quite a bit of “stuff” over the years and now is the perfect time to purge those items that you don’t want to pack up and bring with you to your next home. But what are you supposed to do with all that “stuff’?!? Well we’ve got the answers to help you eliminate it easily!
1) Hold a Garage Sale, depending on the time of year a garage sale can be a great way to shed some items and make some cash. Why not invite your neighbours to participate, the larger the sale the bigger the crowd you’ll draw.
2) Kijiji/Craigslist is another simple way to do away with “stuff”, all you need to do is take some pictures of the items you want to sell and post them on Kijiji/Craigslist with your price. People will simply reply to your post and schedule a time to come pick up, this is especially good if the items are large, like a couch, since it saves you having to move them.
3) Stick your stuff at the curb with a “FREE” sign attached, you may be surprised at what people will take and also how quickly, however anything that isn’t picked up will have to be trekked back inside.
4) If you don’t want the hassle of selling then donating is a fabulous option. It’s a win/win situation and you can feel good about giving in your community. Here’s some places in Woodstock that accept donations.
