Clutter has a way a creeping up on many of us. From closets crammed full of unused clothes, hats, and shoes to basements overflowing with books, toys, and knick-knacks (you get the idea), it’s enough make your head spin. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to face the horrible truth—it’s time to let go of all that stuff. If your home is bursting at the seams with things you don’t need anymore, it might be time to start thinking about junk removal.

With that in mind, here are some handy tips that will help you handle all that excess junk.

Junk Removal Tip #1: Repurpose Your Old Stuff

Fighting the urge to purge? Clearing out the clutter doesn’t always mean tossing everything out. If you’re feeling a little creative, why not turn some of your old trash into something funky and useful?

Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a professional architect or world-renowned artist to pull it off. There are countless websites, offering up tons of great ideas that will help you breathe new life into your old junk. Heck, you can even turn that old toilet seat into a picture frame (the perfect place to put a picture of your mother-in-law—haha).

Junk Removal Tip #2: Host a Yard Sale

It might not be the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon, but holding a yard sale does have its advantages. For starters, you can make a pretty penny selling your stuff—and who couldn’t use some extra cash. It is also a great excuse to spend some time with your neighbors, as well as meet new ones.

If haggling over prices is not your thing, you can always set up a swap. Invite your friends and neighbors to bring whatever items they’d like trade. They can rummage through your stuff, trading their things with yours. No negotiating. No bargaining. No fumbling around with change. Just swap it out and go.  

Junk Removal Tip #3: Sell Your Items Online

Another great way to get rid of your unwanted things is to sell them online. Why not? It’s fast, convenient, and free. Craigslist is a popular go-to choice—but there are countless other options available. For example, you could take a snazzy picture of the stuff you want to sell and post it to Instagram or Facebook.

Junk Removal Tip # 4: Give Your Things to Someone in Need

When it comes time to getting rid of your things, donating is always a welcome option. And there is certainly no shortage of places that will be more than happy to take your unwanted items off your hands, including hospitals, churches, schools, animal shelters, and thrift stores. But before you pass along your stuff, make sure they are in decent shape. Most charities won’t accept items in poor condition.
