It’s that time of year when spring cleaning posts have made their way around social media and where you’ve felt the guilt for not washing your mini-blinds and for having “too much stuff.” All you really want to do is hang out by the kiddie pool on a brand new patio set and soak up the sprummer sun. Now, we all know we’d feel more relaxed if the house wasn’t so messy and if we could get control of “all the things.” So, I’m here to help. I’ve got three ways to declutter your home. They are fast and easy and may even make you some extra cash to buy that picture-perfect patio set you’ve been eyeing at Lowe’s.
It may sound easier to clean out one drawer at a time, but, unfortunately, that will get you NOWHERE if you are on a mission to declutter! You’ve got to move with grand gestures, without hesitation. Start with something easy like your kids’ clothing. Dump ALL of it in a pile and take out anything that is stained, worn, too small, too ugly, too forgotten, etc. Don’t overthink. When you see ALL your son’s clothes in one pile, you will SEE the excess, which will make it a lot easier to get rid of.
2. Keep What You Love
If you don’t love it, get rid of it. You don’t need things in your home that you don’t like. The cool thing is, someone else would probably LOVE to have that pink toddler bed or that black dress that just doesn’t fit you right. Clearing things you don’t love from your home creates a more peaceful and welcoming home that you’ll want to keep clean.
3. Reward Yourself by Selling Your Stuff
Need to motivate yourself to get up and actually DO IT? Part with those items you don’t want and earn CASH by selling them to someone who does want them. VarageSale is an awesome way to do that– easily and safely. You can list your item for sale using the VarageSale app on your phone. Just snap a picture, name a price, and done! Other users in your community will see your item for sale instantly and can message you via the app if interested! You can even view the buyer’s profile before agreeing to meet.
Those unused kid clothes, extra china, home decor, furniture, baby items, and more don’t need to take up space in your home or take away from the things YOU really love. Trade your clutter in for CASH and call that spring cleaning DONE!
