Clear Out Clutter With Craigslist

by Angela On February 19, 2009

I’m so excited I just got a very large piece of clutter cleared from my home office!  About a month ago I added a new shelving unit to my office and as a result I know longer needed a large storage piece that I had been using.   

I have noticed that often times when people get new furniture they don’t have any idea of what they are going to do with the old furniture.   

If you don’t have the space or need for the furniture piece one option is CraigslistCraigslist is a free service that allows you to post things on their web-site that you are trying to sell or give away in your local community.  This is great for larger pieces that can not be easily shipped such as with e-bay.  Think of it as recycling your furniture!

 Craigslist allows you to post a picture and a description of your item on their site and people can send you messages when they are interested. It is very easy to use.   

Be warned that furniture is often priced much lower than original purchase price.  So if you are wanting to get a lot of money for your item, Craigslist may not be the best way to sell your items.  The good thing is that before you list your item you can do some research on Craigslist to see how items similar to yours are priced. If it looks like a number you are willing to accept then move forward and post your item.  If not then you may want to consider a furniture consignment or resale shop.   

Do you know of a great way to recyle furniture?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Being able to open the closet door in my office…priceless! 

Enjoy the good life!
