Whether you’re moving into an apartment or just ready to declutter and make more space in your apartment, there’s ways to do both while making some extra spending cash!
Declutter Your Life
If you’re like most people, you’ve got drawers and cabinets and closets full of stuff you don’t even use! There’s nothing more satisfying than finally getting rid of unnecessary clutter. But, deciding what to get rid of and what to keep can sometimes be tough. A good rule of thumb is the one-month rule. Ask yourself: “Have I used this in the past month?” If the answer is no, then you probably don’t need it.
Sell Your Stuff
Giving your stuff away to the local Goodwill is great, but there’s also ways that you can make some money off of it.
Garage Sales Groups
Just because it’s way too cold to have a garage sale outside, doesn’t mean you can’t sell your stuff at garage sales online! Garage sale groups on Facebook are a great way to unload some of your old stuff and make some money.
Just do a Facebook search for “Garage Sale Fort Wayne” and you’ll find some great places to post your unwanted items for sale. Some of the groups have 2,000-9,000 people just wanting to see what you have! Here’s a few that we found:
