You Decluttered Your Chicagoland Home. What Now?



You Decluttered Your Chicagoland Home.  
What Now?


     I'm just guessing, but I'm betting there are thousands of
videos and articles about the importance of "decluttering" your home prior to putting it up for sale ... 

     Magazines, blogs, and social media are all filled with tips, suggestions, and ideas to help you accomplish this task. There are even handy checklists available to help you kick-start your decluttering.  (Click HERE for one of those checklists.)

     But after you've cleaned, winnowed-out, sorted, recycled, thrown away, and decluttered your home's drawers, closets, garages, basement, and attic ... what in the world do you do with all that stuff?  How do you get rid of it all?


     You can always try a Garage or Yard Sale.  But if you live in a colder region of the U.S. (like here in Chicagoland), cold weather or more severe weather conditions may limit the period of time available to you for hosting such an event.  Then what?

     If you have a large amount of items for sale, an auction is something you might consider.  "Swapping" or a "swap event" to trade those items you have for what others have could work well for you too.  To do this, arrange something locally among friends/family ... or go online to: Swap.com.

     Consignment shops (to find a Consignment/Re-Sale Shop near you, click HERE)  are also a great way to sell unwanted items and earn some money while doing so.  eBay, Craigslist, Amazon, other online sites, and even local newspaper ads can provide opportunity for sales.

     In the greater Chicagoland area, there is a myriad of options for you to consider as you try to rid yourself of no-longer-needed, unused, new and gently-used items.  Consider donating what you can to your local community's organizations, churches, and even pet/animal shelters.

     But afterward, if you're still in need of ideas:  

     Below you'll find the names of some Chicagoland organizations, businesses, and charities ... and links to their websites ... that accept, or will even pick-up, items.  Remember, not all organizations and charities accept all items, so visit their websites or contact them directly to make sure you're donating properly.

     For more ideas and help, you can also visit the Donation Town website, put your Zip Code in, and schedule a convenient pick-up for your goods.

     De-cluttering your home prior to its sale ... or just to re-organize your life and living space ... is a wise decision.  And there are so many great opportunities and ways to accomplish that by putting your used, no-longer-needed items to good use in the Chicagoland area.
