Clearing out for winter – how much can I make?

Outdoor Day Bed

We’ve all grown up with the idea of “spring cleaning”, but this practice has its roots in the northern hemisphere, where a change towards the warmer season warrants a good scouring from the winter snow and mud. But for those of us in the southern hemisphere, a clearing out for winter may be the more practical approach as the summer sun gives way to cooler days.

The best part is, you could make some serious money with a good winter clear out. In fact, research suggests that 89% of us have unwanted items worth just over $4,000 hiding in our homes. So with the Easter long weekend just around the corner, use the time to consider whether you really need that outdoor setting, the old BBQ, or the unused furniture that’s been relegated to the spare room.
