As a culture, we tend to collect a lot of junk. We give and receive gifts, purchase things we don’t need, and hold on to items that are no longer usable for either sentimental reasons or because we don’t know what else to do with them. And while we spend a lot of time collecting stuff, we don’t usually give that same amount of time to getting rid of it. If you feel like you’re drowning in junk, it’s probably time to do some de-cluttering and you may be surprised at how good it feels to clear out your home, garage, or storage unit.
There is nothing quite as satisfying as getting rid of clutter. And while a garage sale or estate sale is a great way to get rid of unwanted junk and make a few extra bucks, such sales are often done out of necessity.
