The first quarter of the year is almost over, but there’s still time for a fresh start.

Getting rid of clutter can be a daunting task, but your unwanted goods lying around your home is potential cash.

There are always eager buyers on OLX who will have a use for your goods and might be prepared to pay some good money for it. Not only will someone appreciate buying your good-as-new items, you’ll benefit by earning money that can go towards something you do want to have. Not only can you buy and sell to someone near you quickly and conveniently on the OLX app.

Time to give it up for good
We all have stuff we don’t use that we can sell for some cash to put towards our savings or things we really need. So, if you haven’t used something in the past few months or are planning on an upgrade, kill two birds with one stone – sell it on OLX to make some cash while creating some space in your home.

If you’ve lived in your home for the past few years, you’ve probably accumulated quite a bit that you no longer use or need . Naturally, we don’t let go of unused goods when we upgrade and all have spots in our home that drive us crazy with clutter.

If you’re a serial shopper or just happen to have inherited a few things from loved ones – if it’s mounting in a corner, it’s time to give it up for good.

South African consumers are incredibly quality-conscious, but that is tempered by also being very price conscious. The key to the growth of online shopping is finding a way to combine higher quality with lower prices, coupled with good service, which is the key attraction of buying used goods or selling unused gifts,” says MD of World Wide Worx, Arthur Goldstuck.

Don’t know where to start?
Are your wardrobes are filled with old clothes that no longer fit? Is your kitchen cupboard filled with old kitchenware? No space to walk through your garage? Then it’s certainly time for you to give it all up for good.

Start small. Get rid of the electronics lying around the house like your old printers, laptops, cell phones, coffee machines and appliances. Then slowly but surely you can target a specific area in your home that has household goods piling up. Wardrobes, bookshelves or the kid’s play area are the next best spots to target.

There’s tons of earning potential around your home, and there are always buyers looking for great deals on OLX.  So don’t make the mistake of only selling your unused goods when you need a bit of payday relief. You can sell almost anything from games, furniture, and sportswear to electronics, plants and musical instruments. Be smart and use your gains to fund your next upgrade.

Need a little support with your declutter?
We challenge you to sell any usable items that are in good condition on OLX for the next 30 days. Find one item a day to clear out the clutter in your home. Find something each day you no longer need and ask yourself “Do I really need this?” when clearing out your home. Join our #OLX30daychallenge and let us know on Facebook and Twitter how it’s going.

Always remember the rule of thumb: if you touch something, you have to make a decision. You’ll only make progress if you make a decision right away, so decide if it makes the cut or not. If it doesn’t, you know that someone on OLX is waiting to take it off your hands.
