Are you stuck deciding whether to keep something or get rid off it? Look here for some tips.
Ask yourself a few questions like:

  • How much is the item worth? Should I throw it away or try to sell it?
  • Does the item have any sentimental worth?
  • Do I really need it? Or do I barely use it?
  • When was it last used? Can I remember?
  • Where did I get the item from? Was it a gift?
  • Did I buy the item from another country?
  • Could the item be antique? Collectable?
  • Could I have won the item from a contest?

After asking yourself these questions, you will probably be able to decide whether or not you want to keep the item. If you want to get rid of it, you face some more choices.

  • What’s it worth?
  • Is it really worth selling?
  • Where should I sell it? EBay?
  • Could I have a garage sale?
  • Should I give it away?
  • Should I donate it to a charitable organization?
