Spring Cleaning Can Be Easy And Profitable

By Brian Ankner

With warmer months just around the corner, spring cleaning isn’t far away. Whether you want to clear some from the winter clutter or just feel like changing the look of the place, spring cleaning can make it happen.

Now is the ideal time to clean out the garage, basement and/or attic. If there are any items which you do not plan to use, this article will tell you how to get rid of them while making money doing it. As we all know, this can take a lot of work but a few simple tips can make your spring cleaning experience a breeze.

1. If you’re storing away your winter clothes, think about using big plastic storage containers that feature snap-on lids. These could be found within the house wares department at most stores and are very inexpensive. Storage containers are really essential to keeping your clothes dust and mildew free, which may otherwise be a issue if they are left hanging in the closet from one season to the next.

2. When packing your clothes, roll them rather than folding. This not only eliminates creases and wrinkles, but also saves a great deal of space. You will be able to pack a great deal more clothes with this technique. Label your clothing containers as ‘spring,’ ‘fall’ and ‘winter.’ This will help you to effortlessly locate your wardrobe inside the closet.

3. If you have any clothing which you don’t intend to wear or merely have outgrown, think about donating them to a local salvation army or other nonprofit organization. Rather than tossing them out, your clothes can supply revenue for a meaningful cause and assist the less-fortunate to be in a position to afford clothing that would otherwise be out of their price range.

4. If you’re looking to clear out some hard items or maybe even some seasonal decorations in order to make space for new ones, consider a renting booth in the local flea market.

Most everyone searching for a deal and they just might be wanting something of which you no longer wish to own. A booth fee is generally required which, depending on the area, can be $10 to $20 per day. Of course you are always able to resell items at online auction sites, including Yahoo and eBay.

5. With all of the changes that you’re undergoing, it may be time to switch to a lightweight vacuum. This will save from dragging around a heavier model and will glide across the floor with ease. There’s no use in completely wearing yourself out throughout spring cleaning, so try to make it as easy as possible.

Sometimes a few cocktails can remove most of the blah that goes with cleaning! Be sure to watch out for those tipsy water pails, they can tip over without even touching them! And be sure not to confuse the drinks glass with the glass cleaner or the newspaper reporter will compose a funny article about a squeaky clean guy that was under the influence getting his tummy pumped! Make light of the job and it will go quickly.
