Here's another Quick Tip for A Better Space -
I bet a lot of you are cleaning out your garages and other areas of the home in preparation for summer. Below is some information you can use when considering making use of your local consignment shop.
If you have high-end furniture, for example, that’s too big for your space after you've downsized, it may be worth investigating the possibility of consignment sales. Be aware however, that although something may be of good quality, it may be out of style and a consignment agent will be less likely to take it on.
Before going the consignment route, research the various stores and agents in your area to be sure it is a worthwhile arrangement. You’ll usually receive a percentage of the selling price and some shops only take items they know they’ll sell. Once you’ve given it to them you won’t have to ever take it back. This can apply to making use of E-bay stores as well.
Remember, sometimes, it's just better to give it up and move on. In some cases, if it has served it's time and you have gotten it's money's worth, it's time to just let it go.
Separate emotional value from monetary value and you will have a better time deciding what to do with those "expensive" items. I promise you will then have A Better Space.
