Look around you – is that your room filled with all that useless tiny objects which as you might suppose have just appeared from nowhere? Wrong assumption…it was you who had bought them because you thought they would perfectly combine with the style of the room. Fortunately you are not the only one who had been captured in this vicious circle of buying unneeded stuff – it is very common habit, just calm down – it will continue throughout your whole life.
Whether you accept this as a joke or not here is a list with some proposals of what you can do with the unnecessary things in your home, which probably are a big problem when you are moving out.
Donation. If you are a fan of donating your things and you are familiar with such places that is one of the best options you have. Of course you should carefully pick up such things which are suitable for the certain group of people. For example do not send your old magazines and broken souvenirs – pick out the things that may be of a great need to those people – if you have clothes and books that stay in wardrobes just to fill the space – do not give them a last chance . In this way you could establish a new arrangement in your room and help someone who is in need.
Friends. The good old saying”A friend in need is a friend indeed”works ideally here. If you pick a room in your house and look it with fresh eyes you will probably make the conclusion that there are more than 5 things that could bring happiness to your friends. May be it’s the right time to say goodbye to them and make your room look cleaner and tidy. Your friends will be content to have an old unique souvenir from Egypt or the perfect professional guitar that had been waiting for you to tune it. Well..accept your fortune you are not the second Jimi Hendrix, however you can fix things by making a present to your best friend. Problem solved.
Recycling This is an ultimate decision, but if you really need to clean and reorganize your home don’t have second thoughts about it. All that thrash, stuck in between the angles of the room should be repacked and recycled as soon as possible. In this way you may feel as an contributor to the saving of our planet – the recycling is vital for preserving the environment.
Schools and daycare centers This is another good option mainly if you want to donate some books , even some old magazines. There are many schools in which the libraries suffer from the lack of books and magazines so if the books stay covered with dust on the shelves just give them away and leave the space for new book which will perfectly suit your taste.
Selling This is an option which could be really beneficial for you if you need an extra money . But pay attention, because if you sell your unneeded stuff you must take a preliminary look of the things and see if they are in good condition or not. That goes perfectly if you have decided to move to a smaller apartment and there is not enough space for some of the furniture.
There are many ways in which you could get rid of the unneeded stuff but before that you have to realize and accept the fact that you possess things that are in your home for no reason and the sooner you put up with this fact, the better you will feel later. Whether it is an old toy with a sentimental value or an expensive costume bought with the wrong size – get over it – sell it, donate it and feel the cosiness of your neat and clean home.
