If you are looking at cleaning out your home and getting rid of junk, there are a lot of things that you need to consider. Many times, people don’t realize just how much stuff that they have and whether or not some of that stuff is valuable. Did you know that you can find treasures in your junk? It’s true! Here are some of the things that you may find while cleaning out your home.
Valuable Items. Sometimes, you just find items that are valuable. It sounds simple, but there are some things in your home, like jewelry or items that were made a certain way, that have some sort of monetary value to those that may want to purchase such things. Many companies are taking items and reselling them, and there are a lot of places all over the country where you can go and get items appraised so you know what you have. You may have an antique that you didn’t realize that you had – or you may just have a few items that look pretty but have no value. Get it checked out before you just pitch it!
Money. This sounds silly, but I can tell you that I’ve found money while cleaning out my home. About 2 months ago I was moving new furniture into my house, and we moved the carpet – under the carpet was an envelope that I had obviously dropped, and it had about $40 in it! I was excited. There are all sorts of stories out there about people finding significant amounts of money in furniture that they’ve bought as well. So before you get rid of anything, especially furniture, make sure that you open all of the drawers and look in all of the nooks and crannies to make sure that you don’t accidentally send some cash off with your junk.
Family Items. Sometimes, we don’t know where particular family heirlooms or other items that may have been passed to us have gone. Even though many family items don’t have any monetary value, finding them may be significant to you emotionally, which makes it important that you don’t get rid of them either. If you want to pass them down to your children, you want to make sure that they don’t accidentally get hauled off with everything else that you’re getting rid of. Be mindful and look at everything carefully before making a decision.
Obviously, there are a lot of other things that you may find while you are cleaning out your home. Make sure that you don’t overlook anything, because you may find treasures in your junk that you didn’t realize were there!
