Turning Household Clutter into Cash

Having clutter around the house that isn’t adding value to your life can be downright irritating. And not just because it’s taking up valuable space in the household. It’s also a symbol of money spent on things you’re not using. Thankfully, you can get rid of this clutter by selling it, thus converting it back into money.

Some of you may know that I am in the process of selling my house. As I get ready to put the house on the market, I started going through every room to “declutter” and it is amazing how much “stuff” we accumulate. All those dollars sitting dormant collecting dust.

Getting Rid of the ‘Stuff’

Over the years, most of us accumulate material things. But they can become a burden. The reality is that objects own you after you’ve purchased them, and you’re not free until you let them go. It could be toys bought for your kids from well-meaning relatives or electronics or clothes, books, etc. You can sell these things online if you’re not using them anymore, and this will mean you receive extra cash from whatever sells – who doesn’t love that?!

Thinking Ahead to Reduce Clutter

The lesson I have been learning is to try to make better buying decisions to start with. That will keep the clutter away before it even begins or at least significantly reduce it. Don’t worry; this doesn’t mean you have to live without anything material. It is about a minimalist lifestyle though and also the recognition that buying less enables you to accumulate more wealth.

In some cases, you can even rent or borrow items rather than buying them. An example is a tool that you require for a DIY project and only plan to use once. Rather than shelling out a hundred dollars for this tool that will accumulate dust in a closet after the project is done, simply borrow it from a friend instead.
