Donate or Sell Your Old Belongings

From that new television you’ve been eyeing to discounted toys for your child, Black Friday has deals you just can’t pass on. But what do you do with your old belongings when new ones take their place? Rather than tossing unused items into your storage closets or recycling perfectly good tech, toys, and more, consider donating them to your nearest charity. Whether it’s your local Goodwill or Salvation Army, your donation will help those in need this holiday season while preventing waste in our landfills. Also, if your old items are gently used and your friends or family could benefit from them, consider regifting them!

Additionally, if you have old items that still retain their value, you could make some extra cash before Christmas by selling them. Consider online selling platforms such as eBay, Craigslist, Mercari, Poshmark, and more.

Carve Out Space for Christmas Present Storage

Not only does donating or selling your old belongings free up storage space at home, but it also allows you to hide Christmas presents from your family, friends, and loved ones. With clutter-free closets, garages, and more, you can stash all sorts of gifts out of sight to keep Christmas day a surprise—especially if you have children who are on the hunt for Yuletide goodies.
