Are you planning to renovate your kitchen? Planning something new for the kitchen is the perfect time to offload unwanted items that are cluttering around the place. Out with the old, in with the new!
But if you are clever, this is also an opportunity to earn some extra cash.
This way, you are hitting two birds with one stone – get rid of old and outdated things, and fund your kitchen renovation!
Make a Plan
Go through each drawer and cabinet. Even the smallest items can rake in some cash to add to your budget. Think of the items you have never used but can be useful for someone else. There are some that are not even worth selling but can be donated to charity instead. Lastly, if selling or donating these items won’t make the cut, it is straight to the rubbish bin then.
Check the Pricetag
There are a lot of websites that can help you out in selling your unwanted items. Others opt to hold a garage sale or make a stand at the local flea market. Whatever your choice may be, make sure to check out your favourite shopping websites to see the asking price of similar items. Set a price that is competitive but fair. Try not to set the price too high or else buyers will ignore your listing.
Clean the Stuff!
Once you’ve already sorted the items you want to sell off or give away, it is time to bring out the gloves and cleaning tools. They may be unwanted things but other people may be willing to take them off your hands if they are looking their best! For pieces like the oven and the fridge, be prepared to take out shelves and panels, then put it all back together again.
Take Great Photos
If you’re planning to post these items online, a great picture is always an eye-catcher. Don’t forget to write a description with the model numbers and product specs, too.
Some buyers may want to ask for more information and negotiate on a particular item. Remember that the aim is to get rid of these items. Don’t be greedy and hold out for an extra five or ten dollars. You could be left with it.
