Spring has officially sprung, which means it is time to pull out your flip flops and put your winter coat away. It also means it is time to get started on your spring cleaning list. If you are dreading even looking at your spring cleaning list, keep these tips in mind to help keep your house clean while making a little extra money.
- Clean out your closet – when you are organizing your closet, make a sell pile, and then find a consignment store where you can sell your clothes. Keep in mind that labels do matter, and so do the condition of your clothes. To get top dollar, make sure to take notice of name brands that are currently in season.
- Have a garage sale – garage sales can be a lot of work and early mornings. It can also mean a couple extra hundred dollars in your pocket and empty closets. When setting up for your garage sale, keep in mind that people are looking for a good deal, so price items appropriately. A couple dollars is better than having a cluttered garage.
- Go online – if you cannot even imagine having a garage sale, or do not have the space for it, sell any items that you do not want online. Sites such as eBay allow you to sell any extra items that you do not need or want from the comfort of your couch.
- Get rid of wedding gifts – chances are, you got a few china sets when you said “I do.” If they are sitting in your garage taking up space, sell them. Keep your favorite set, and sell whatever you do not want.
