Punta Gorda Leather Couch DisposalAs you can see, there’s not much you can do. But, this doesn’t mean you’re stuck with that old sofa. Here are some suggestions you can try out:
- Sell it. If it’s in good condition, then there’s no reason you can’t sell it. Publish a local ad with plenty of pictures and a detailed description. Price it really cheap to get more interest and get it out of your house quicker.
- Donate it. One way to go is to simply donate it to a local shelter, church, school, or other organization. This also has the benefit of a small tax write off.
- Give it away. Another idea is to give it away to someone you know or someone you know who knows someone else. Spread the word and see if there are any takers.
- Recover and reuse it. Of course, you can always opt to recover it and continue to use it well into the future. This way, you’ll get a whole new look and not have to deal with disposal.
