January is just the perfect time to de-clutter the house – the latest buzzword for sorting out your stuff!
You can start small – drawer by drawer and progress to room by room. My husband has started sorting through 20yrs of accumulated stuff and the kids are getting into it too. Despite moving countries several times he has still managed to move things we don’t use with him!
There’s the throw out pile, the donate pile but then there’s that “I might need it one day and I’m not ready to part with it” pile… and we all have one of those.
Do you ruthlessly chuck it out? Sell it on Trade Me for a fraction of its value?
This is where Hire Things comes in. List your things for hire then you get to keep them and continue to get value from them by hiring them out to others in your community and making some extra cash. It makes good economic and environmental sense.
Who knows maybe you might take up surfing again….
