Trash or Treasure?The old cliche states that one man’s trash is another’s treasure. That might be true for many things, but it certainly doesn’t apply to some items. You’ll discover this when you’re getting ready for a move and try to offload them or when you’re on a mission to create more space in your home.
Toss away those old cartons and make some room for things that you actually need to store for your future requirement. Also, invitations for things not involving treasured family members or friends should also be cleared away. —MSN.comThere are seven things you can’t give away and when you take a moment to think about each of them, it’s no wonder why. The quickest way to understand this is to ask yourself if you’d be open to taking them and that will give you an immediate answer.
5 Things You Can’t Give AwayHere’s what makes the list:
- Office equipment. Technology changes rapidly and that means offices have to upgrade their equipment. Trying to offload old computers, printers, filing cabinets, copy machines, phones, and other office equipment is quite difficult. No one wants this stuff precisely because it’s outdated and these aren’t welcome at the local landfill.
- Cardboard boxes. You might think it’s easy to rid yourself of cardboard boxes, but it’s not as simple as you believe it to be. The best way to rid yourself of cardboard boxes is to put an ad on the internet. If you’re lucky enough to know someone who’s moving, try him or her.
- Televisions. Local trash collection agencies won’t touch these and you’ll also find that no one is excited or eager to take them off your hands. The reason for this should be obvious: no one wants something that’s outdated.
- Couches and furniture. If you have an old couch that’s seen it’s better days, you might have a lot of trouble trying to rid yourself of it. These are heavy and if torn, worn, or stained, you won’t be able to give them away. The same holds true for other furniture.
- Mattresses. Mattresses are also bulky and since you sleep in them, are ripe with germs.
