Efficient Ways to Get Rid of Your Junk

Introduction It seems that some people have a knack for hoarding stuff like no others. Items pile up in every room and you soon find yourself completely buried under junk. As the process is progressive, you might not realize how cramped your space has become. But when the time comes to move out, you have no choice but to admit that you’ve gone overboard and that you need to get rid of some of those items. In this presentation, we will discuss some effective ways to dispose of stuff you don’t need anymore, depending on the nature of the objects at hand and their value.

The eBay Way One of your best bets here will be to turn to eBay and put those items up for sale. Why not making money while also making some room? The number one question you will have to ask yourself is whether those objects are still worth anything. If the answer is yes, then you can almost be certain that you’ll find a buyer. When setting up the auction, make sure that the starting price is at $0,01 so as to encourage bidding. In case you worry that the item could not reach your desired price, just set a reserve.

The Face-to-Face Way Another alternative to empty your house of undesired items and make some cash at the same time is to take part in a garage sale or get a stand on a flea market. Unlike the previous option, here you will not have to pay commission fees, S&H or even spend time wrapping up the items. Some tips to keep in mind include: always show the price for the different items as most people will not bother asking and will just turn away; give your full attention to visitors by avoiding to read books or be on the phone; clean everything thoroughly before putting them on display‌

Throw Them Out If, after assessing the value of your junk, you just can’t see how anyone on Earth could possibly be interested in it (because it’s either broken, completely worn out, or missing pieces), then it may be time to trash it. With that being said, it’s not always an option to just dump it with your household refuse. Whether the items can be recycled or not, the best way to get rid of them is simply to pay a visit to your local waste collection site where you will find dedicated containers for all types of materials, from wood to Styrofoam.

Donate the Items Money isn’t everything. If your items still hold value and you feel in a generous mood, you could decide to make a good gesture and give them away. In order to donate your items, first make sure that they’re in good working condition. No point in giving away broken articles as they will not benefit anyone anyway. Then, just choose a good cause of your liking and contact them to learn how to get the items to them. Great items to donate include clothing, shoes, sheets, belts, but also entertainment devices such as TVs, gaming consoles, media players, etc.


There are dozens of ways to get rid of unwanted stuff. You can either try and sell it for a profit or you can go down the helpsome-people-out path and donate it all. No option is better than the other; just weigh the pros and the cons of each method and try and see who could really benefit the most from those items. Remember: what goes around, comes around‌
