How about just giving it away?
Hello and welcome back to Declutter Fast

Do you own your furniture - or does your furniture own you?

Furniture is important - furniture is beautiful.

(My great-grandfather was a legendary furniture store owner in his day. I suspect a few pieces in my home came from his store!)

But over time, when we take on too many pieces - or get stuck with the furniture others leave at our homes -

- it gets to be ridiculous!

And we start to suspect.... "This furniture is running the show. I don't own the furniture, IT owns ME."

That's the day to call Goodwill or the Salvation Army, in my opinion.

Other people disagree.

Still other people don't just disagree, they have a cow over it!

"WHAT?? Give it away? That's valuable, no way am I giving it to the Salvation Army. I'm SELLING it."

I completely understand selling furniture - IF you can sell it. It's really a great idea.

But you have to list the furniture and then answer all the calls and messages.

Then you have to wait at your home to show the furniture piece to some stranger.

Then you have to deal with your potential buyer trying to bargain you down in price.

So in the end, that 200 you want to make from the furniture - takes up weeks of your time and energy!

Which adds up to a loss of more like 1000 worth of your time, if your time earns you money. Maybe much, much more!

That's why I say: if you can, just GIVE it away.

You probably have a family member, friend, or neighbor who is thrilled to take it off your hands, so it can fill up THEIR garage for the next five years...

A needy family might really be able to use your furniture - that makes you feel good.

Whatever you decide to do - don't let your furniture own YOU.

You're the king of your castle (or the QUEEN). What you say, goes.

Less furniture means less to attract dust, less to move, and less to clean.

Less to step around; less to find a place for, and Less To Think About!
