Looking to simplify your life?
Are you ready to move to a smaller place? Or just ready to de-clutter and get rid of some of your stuff? The idea of downsizing can be a bit overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. If you don’t want to face it alone, get a family member or a friend to help, and tackle it one room or one item at a time. Just DO IT!
Here are some suggestions on how to purge and get rid of your stuff:
Garage sales are very time consuming, and may not be worth the time and effort. It really would depend on how much stuff you have. If you don’t have a lot of your own stuff to have one, then consider partnering with nighbors to make it more fun and it will attract more people.
Donate to charities or second hand stores and some of them will even come and pick it up. Large ticket or furniture items consider places like The Habitat for Humanity Re-Store.
If it gently used adult clothing consider The Gathering Place or The Salvation Army.
Sell online….post to sites such as NL Classifieds, Kijiji or Facebook Market Places are very popular now. This is a great way to make a bit of extra money and purge at the same time. Lots of people looking for second hand stuff.
