it was easy for me to sort out what i want and don’t want. but once that step is complete, it’s important to get rid of the don’t want pile before it becomes clutter again.
so what do i do?
1. Sell it on Ebay or Amazon.
I sell everything worth £10 or more: Amazon for textbooks and Ebay for everything else. Ebay seemed overwhelming at first, but this guest post on Zen Habits helped immensely. I am selling my first item and it’s already going for a very good price. It’s surprisingly easy to do.
2. Donate to a local charity.
There are two Oxfams just around the corner from my college, so I donate everything worth less than £10. It’s great to know that it’s going to a good cause.
3. Donate to a friend!
(Only if the friend is in need of said object, of course.) You know it will go to a loving home this way, and it makes both you and your friend happy 🙂
