Clear Out Busy Shelves For A Calmer Room

Spring is nearing, and the last thing you want is to feel like you’re cooped up in a home with lots of clutter. Make more room on your shelves and give your home a more serene ambiance by turning your unwanted items into cash. Here’s a strategic plan that will help you clear out space, shelf by shelf.


One of the greatest things about books is being able to pass them on, so don’t let your favourite ones just sit on the shelf. You can sell them back to a used bookshop or online, and go pick up more novels that you haven’t read yet.

When it comes to children’s literature, you should make sure you’re updating your kids’ collection of books as they move into new reading levels. This will continually challenge them to develop more vocabulary while giving them new and exciting material to read every once in a while.


Now that most music fans are switching to mp3 and digital music players, there’s really no need to keep a full rack of CDs anymore. If you have dozens of cases that are just taking up space, consider converting all of your albums into a digital file format so that you can simply plug into your mp3 player to have every song you own at the touch of a button. Then, sell your CDs online to make a little extra cash.


If you’ve memorised the entire dialogue to your favourite romantic comedies, it may be time to move on to more current motion pictures. But don’t just toss perfectly good DVDs; if they don’t have scratches and the picture shows like new, consider selling DVDs for cash.

This site allows users to earn cash from selling everything from CDs to DVDs without ever having to leave home. The site can also help you make a positive impact with their charity campaign. To get involved, all you have to do is select from their list of non-profit organisations, and the money that comes from the sale of your old discs will be donated.

Video games.

If you’re a gamer, you know that there’s nothing better than the thrill of turning on a game that you’ve never played before.

Keep those points coming by using a second-hand game shop to make sure that your video game collection stays fresh and you don’t accumulate too many boxes at one time. Limit yourself to three or four games at a time and sell the old ones in exchange for newer ones when you’ve reached the highest level.
