We all of us accumulate more stuff than we need, right? My weaknesses include old wooden chairs and, for some reason, small tables.
Way more than I need or even have room for.
Your weakness might be designer purses, cute clothes that your kids don’t need or even want, or casserole dishes (my mother’s go-to possession, even after her kids had grown up and left the nest.)
So how do we decide to keep it or pass it on? There’s just one question to ask yourself:
“If I were shopping right this second, would I buy this?”
If the answer’s no, out it goes.
Sure, you saved up for that Louis (which it turns out, you quickly became unenamored of) or the mini-me dress for Ashleigh scratched her so much, it never looked good with her scowl, or your spouse simply could not stand the vintage metal car you thought he’d like. If it’s something you know better than to buy today, let someone else enjoy it.
While you enjoy the peace and space left behind.
Turning your cluttered closets and home in cash:
What type of shop should you use for underloved possessions?
