You don’t carry your out-of-style designer handbag but you can remember saving for months for it. You don’t use your mom’s wedding china and aren’t really sentimental about it but you are sure it is worth a fortune. Then there’s the framed piece of art you had to have but it looks terrible in your room and is now facing the wall of your closet behind your clothes.
Everyone has expensive clutter. When someone suggests you just get rid of it, you exclaim “But do you know how much I paid for that?”
Some things get more valuable with age: wine, comic books and coin collections are a few. But the list is pretty darn short. Most things just get old and useless. Just picture that last garage sale where you couldn’t even get five bucks for something you thought worth twenty.
If you don’t use it and love it, out it goes, even if it was expensive. If you think it is valuable now, hop online and do some research. Don’t just keep it.
Until next time …
