Here are a few tips for when you’re ready clear out the clutter and cash in on it:

1.Pull everything out. While this may sound crazy, clearing out an entire space is the best way to sort through everything. Once a space is cleared out, you’ll be able to prioritize your goods and determine what you want to keep and what needs to go.

2.Sort everything into four piles: keep, throw away, sell/pawn and donate. Some things you’re naturally going to want to keep, while others are going to clearly be garbage. Once you’ve sorted through the keep and throw items, you’re going to have to decide what you want to sell to your local pawn shop and what you want to donate. Many times items you can’t sell to your pawn shop can be donated to good will.

3.Pawn your valuable, unwanted items. Pawn shops are always looking for new inventory. If you’re not sure if an item is worth pawning, go in and ask. You might be pleasantly surprised.

4.Donate items to good will. With cash in hand from pawning your valuable unwanted goods, you may want to pay it forward and donate the remaining items to good will. Even though they may not be worthy of pawning, they may help someone in need.
