Are you thinking about buying a new house or apartment in Ghana or Accra in the capital city? Your prospect of a new home is undoubtedly exciting. You may be dreading the thought of having to pack everything up and move. In today’s article, we will explore three tips for purging old, unwanted, or forgotten items before making a move into a new home in Ghana.
Host a Garage Sale And Consider Consignment
Now that you have everything in your home sorted, it’s time to host a garage sale. It is also possible that you can run a traditional sale. You place everything out on the lawn on a Saturday morning and put up signs to let the neighborhood know. Alternatively, you can run a virtual garage sale through web and app-based classifieds like Craigslist.
You may also want to consider calling up local consignment shops. A consignment store will sell your items for you and keep a portion of the sale price as a fee. This can be a useful option if you have antiques or other goods that are more popular with an older crowd.
Donate Everything Else
Maybe you left something in your home? If so, it’s time to hand over this last bit of unwanted clothing, furniture, or appliances to your local charity. Many charitable organizations will come and pick up your unwanted items, which saves you from having to drive a load of stuff over somewhere to drop it off. Call up your charity of choice and see if they accept donations. If not, they will be able to refer you to other local organizations that are interested.
Purging your older or unwanted items is a good way to make your move easier.
