Clear Out Clutter with a Garage Sale

There are few better ways to get rid of extra stuff that you have lying around than to hold a garage sale. Not only do you get to unload some things you no longer need, but you also earn some cash in the process. Have a few tips on how to clear out your clutter with a garage sale.

Clear Out Clutter

When holding a garage sale with the intent of clearing out some of your clutter, it’s important to remain focused on the main goal of the sale. While it’ll be nice to get some cash, the main purpose of the garage sale is to get rid of items you no longer need. To effectively do this, you should:

  • go through your entire house looking for things to sell
  • price everything low to maximize the chances of things selling
  • donate anything that doesn’t sell to a charity

The final tip, bringing donating items to a charity, is especially important. If you’re holding a garage sale to get rid of things, don’t bring any unsold items back into your home. Take them directly to the nearest charity in Woodstock, GA.

Update Your Home Inventory List

After your garage sale is over, you should update your home inventory list. We at Peter Laczko Insurance Inc. recommend to all our clients that they maintain an accurate list of the personal belongings in their home. Having a list on hand can make filing home insurance claims easier, but it’s important that the list is up to date. Anything that sold during your garage sale should be stricken from your list.

If you have any questions about creating a home inventory list, feel free to contact us. Even if you don’t have an insurance policy with us, we’d be happy to help you make sure your personal belongings are protected by our homeowners insurance and that your home inventory list is accurate.
