You have finally had it with the junk in your home. You conduct a thorough cleaning of the whole house and come up with a ton of stuff that you would like to get rid of and save your house from becoming a museum of artifacts and ancient furniture and knickknacks.

But hold on just a moment. As it turns out, you may be sitting on a gold mine so it will be to your benefit to search through the selection of junk and find the treasures you can sell. Once you find the treasures, where should you sell them? eBay is always a great choice to sell unwanted items because people from all over the world will have a chance to take a look at the items and buy them if they are interested. There is always a buyer for everything.

That broken lamp? It could be worth a lot to a collector. Those old records? Some music junkie in Europe would love to add them to his collection. You may hate your stuff, but other people might not and why not try to make a little bit of money from getting rid of the artifacts in your home. You just need to set up an eBay account and follow the instructions.

Within a few minutes, you will be selling your artifacts online and will have buyers for them within hours or days.

Then, the most difficult thing after that will be collecting the money and keeping a straight face as you travel to the post office to send off the artifacts to their new owners.

What if you do not want to sell things on eBay? You could hold a garage sale and let others come by and sift through your artifacts and rejected items while you sit back with a nice glass of lemonade. Or, you could choose to not sell your artifacts at all, and instead, donate them to a second-hand store to benefit their charities. You will not only be helping others, but you will also be able to mark the costs off on your taxes. Not a bad way to get rid of old junk you do not want anymore.

Any of these ways would be fantastic choices for getting rid of the artifacts that have cluttered your home for years. Just realize though that you will have to do this again at a later time and the stuff you and your family covet today will turn into artifacts in just a few years. Styles and tastes change, however, you do not have to live with the artifacts of the past forever. Simply purge the stuff you do not need anymore and enjoy your newly empty space-at least until you find a way to put more junk into it.

And do not try to kid yourself, you will find more junk to fill your home. It is human nature. See, what are you doing right now? Yes, that is right. You are thinking about going shopping. The cycle continues.
