After the Clutter, Where to Sell Our Giveaways?

Welcome 2022! We truly wish for a NEW Year! Let’s make some 2022 New Year Resolutions.

The 12 Days of Christmas Organizing had us spend 30 minutes each day organizing a specific area in our homes. Now we have plastic bags full of things to donate, sell or recycle.

Let’s look at our options.

We learned Where to Donate Our Giveaways, the previous blog, and focused on donating stuff to various organizations.

Now we move on to how to Sell our giveaways.

  1. Get Organized. On going

  2. Learn where to Donate giveaways.

  3. Investigate how to Sell our giveaways.

  4. Recycle more efficiently & avoid the landfill.

  5. Buy less, use what we have better, recycle, donate, or sell our clutter away.

In my last Blog, After the Clutter, where to donate our Giveaways?, I provided some resources about donating our giveaways. This edition will focus on, “After the Clutter, Where to Sell our Giveaways?”

Our clients really get into sorting their giveaways and one of the piles is always, “I could sell this or I could have a garage sale!” These are options available with every organizing event.

Options: Yard Sales

Yard sales that bring in the most money have large ticket items such as furniture, bikes, modern TVs, Video game consuls, etc. These need to be visibly in great condition. Clothes, Knick knacks, puzzles, games, plates, utensils are popular items to sell but don’t always sell. Be sure to have prices on things but be willing to negotiate. People expect to find a bargain and enjoy getting one!

Yard sales take time.

Time to organize and display things, advertising costs, and 1-2 days of selling. Finally, when the sale is over be prepared to take the rest to your favorite donation site.

Do not let that leftover yard sale stuff back into the house or garage! Into the car immediately or set up a “pick-up” date with a donation company.

Sell your items: How!
