When you have a lot of old things that you no longer use and just take up space, it’s time to get rid of them. So, how do you go about doing this? Do you give away your old clothes to charity? Or sell them on a local online marketplace like eBay? Or will holding a yard sale be the best way to get rid of everything once and for all? The answer is: it depends on what kind of clutter you have and what your personal circumstances are. For example, if you live in a small apartment or house with limited storage space, it may not be feasible or even possible to have a yard sale or sell your stuff on eBay. If that’s the case for you, here are some other options for getting rid of clutter.
Hold a General Service House Clearance
A general house clearance is a great way to get rid of all your clutter at once, whether it’s just lying around in your home or stored in the garage or garden shed. A general house clearance service will send a team of people to your house or garden (or wherever you need them to be) to collect all your unwanted items, label them and then dispose of them appropriately. The benefit of this is that you don’t need to worry about sorting your stuff and where to get rid of it. The team will do all of that for you. You should expect to pay around £100 per hour for a general house clearance, depending on the company you use and where they are located. You can Either book a one-off clearance, or get a regular home clearance service if you have a lot of stuff to get rid of.
Hold a Big Garage Sale
If you have a lot of old furniture or appliances that you need to get rid of, a garage sale may be your best option. You can hold it at your home or at another place, like a local community centre or church. The best thing about a garage sale is that you can charge for items if people want to buy them. This means that you don’t necessarily need to give things away or throw them out. Just make sure you charge a fair amount and make it clear that you don’t need any donations. You can use a free online garage sale website like Easy Garage Sales or Gumtree to publicise your garage sale. Alternatively, you could try placing an ad in your local newspaper or by hanging signs in your neighbourhood.
