What Ideas Do You Have for Your New Space?

Do you have a room in your home that has become the catch-all for everyone’s storage in the house or items you aren’t sure about, etc.? If you removed all of the items out of that room, what ideas do you have for that new space that is available?

Would it become the:

  • Man cave,
  • Kid’s playroom,
  • Guest room,
  • New baby room,
  • Shoe closet,
  • Walk-in closet,
  • Renovated en-suite,
  • Trophy room,
  • Library,
  • Home office,
  • Pantry,
  • Craft room,
  • Home gym,
  • Bar,
  • Media room,
  • Homework room,
  • Butler’s pantry, etc.

Here are some steps to make that “dream” come true:

Get Organized

Devote a specific time to go through your items and make some tough choices. Have bins or piles dedicated to:

  1. Trash
  2. Sell / Recycle
  3. Donate
  4. Giveaway
  5. Keep

Sell / Recycle
There are a ton of sites to make it easy for you to sell your treasures online. Here are just a few ways to do it and make money in the process.

Letgo App
Letgo does a great job at categorizing product listings as you can search for particular keywords or general categories like Fashion and Accessories or Home and Garden. You can also easily view additional items for sale from the same seller when you click on a product listing. Letgo can be a little safer than Craigslist because you have to verify your Google or Facebook account to create a Letgo profile. While Craigslist has a very simple and clean platform, you can also post videos with Letgo in addition to pictures. With Letgo, you snap a picture of the item to sell and list it quickly. In fact, the only way to sell on Letgo is with their app. Buyers, on the other hand, can view your listing on the app or the desktop website. You will also like Letgo if you live in a rural area because listings are listed by city and zip code. If a prospective buyer enters a zip code (i.e., 34684), Letgo will populate the nearest product listings first. Or, they can also search by product name or category as well.

Decluttr App
Decluttr is an easy way to sell your unwanted CDs, DVDs, Games, Blu-Rays, Books, LEGO® and Tech! It’s completely free, and it’s easy to get started too. After you enter the barcode into their valuation engine, they’ll give you an instant offer.

Facebook Buy and Sell Groups

You have to have a Facebook Account and then to get started selling, click on the “Buy and Sell Groups” button in the Explore menu. Facebook will list several groups closest to you, and you can also search for your specific city or county group. To sell (or buy), you will have to join the group first. Be sure to read the group guidelines to see if there are any listing restrictions. There are selling groups and yard sale groups. The second type of group is used to advertise yard sales (not to sell individual items).

eBay
Most people think that eBay is for only selling items that need to be shipped to a buyer on the other side of the country or the world. You can also do local listings for large and bulky items like furniture and flat screen TVs that require the buyer to meet you to pick up the item.

Craigslist
Craigslist app is very similar to the actual Craigslist website that pioneered the online classified movement. It’s not always the easiest or most feature-heavy app, but Craigslist has a large audience allowing you to reach the largest potential of buyers.

Donate to a Local Charity
During a clean out, make sure you consider items to donate to a local charity to help out others but also, use the list of items as a tax deduction. Donate or sell clothing, furniture, etc.

Giveaway
As you are cleaning out, there are items that would be of importance to others in your family and/or neighborhood. Could they use this item instead of discarding it?

Keep
Make sure to keep the irreplaceable photos, scrapbooks, albums, and other memorabilia that might have little value to people outside of the family but major value to you. Find a place for it to showcase in your home.
