This season is a natural time for many people to end their winter hibernation by getting their house in order — spring cleaning is an excellent opportunity to clean and freshen up the home. But while you’re going through your old stuff, throwing out what you don’t use anymore, you might as well make some money at it.
Here are a few tips that will help you profit from your spring cleaning.
Sell Your Old Gold
Do you have old gold you don’t really need anymore? Maybe it was an inherited watch or some jewellery you don’t wear, or something else. If you’re wondering how to get the most for your gold then look to your local gold buyer, but consider a few things before you do.
You want to visit an experienced shop that offers security, discreetness, and fair market prices. Many gold buyers also buy silver or platinum jewellery, gold and silver coins, diamonds, antiques, gold and silver dental fillings, and even high-end bags by designers like Hermes or Chanel.
If you find something along these lines while cleaning up your house, drop in to see a gold buyer. Even if you don’t feel like selling it today, they’ll tell you what it is worth, and most buyers are happy to give free appraisals.
Use The Internet As A Flea Market
The internet is incredibly good at finding somebody in the world who will pay money for something you don’t want. Whenever you post something for sale on any number of the sites devoted to buying and selling make sure that you give an accurate description of what’s for sale, and the condition that it’s in. Take many good pictures of it.
You want to avoid misleading potential buyers. When the person comes to pick it up and pay for the item, you want them to see it and feel glad it was what they thought it was. If they walk away feeling misled, it’s just a waste of everybody’s time. Before you throw out something old you think nobody wants, consider selling it online.
Give Objects To Where They’re Useful
You won’t get cash by giving things away, but it’s a nice way to support friends or the community. If you have things in your home that are just taking up space that you feel could be more useful for somebody else, you don’t always need to sell it.
Think of friends who could use it, connect with a group that directly disperses these things to people who need it, or give it to an organization that will sell it and use the proceeds to help people in need.
Cleaning out your home isn’t just about dusting or polishing the floors; it’s about reducing the clutter where you live in a meaningful way. If you can do this by selling valuables or old possessions, or by passing them on to where they can be put to better use, your spring cleaning will be all the more profitable and productive.
