Get Rid of Junk Without Feeling Guilty

Do you feel guilty throwing away perfectly good stuff just because you no longer need or use it? Toss those guilty feelings out with the junk! Here are some ideas from Orlando junk removal company, Junk Angel, to help you find a new home for everything that has to go.


Clothes that no longer fit or flatter you might be exactly what someone else is looking for. Donate clothing that’s in good condition to a nonprofit, such as Goodwill or Dress for Success. Sell items at a local consignment shop, or give your kids’ outgrown clothes to friends and family members with younger children. Search online for tutorials on how to transform old sweaters, jeans, and t-shirts into handbags, backpacks, pillows, and other handy things.


If you know you’re never going to read that book again, let someone else read it. Donate books to your local library or Goodwill, which has dedicated bookstores. Sell vintage books on e-Bay, Etsy, or other online marketplaces. Host a book swap, complete with themed snacks and drinks, and invite guests to come dressed as their favorite characters or authors.


No one needs five sets of Allen wrenches or flat-head screwdrivers. Donate sturdy tools to Habitat for Humanity. Turn vintage or rusty “junk” into shadow-box décor; bend flat tools into unique hooks; use old levels as narrow shelves. Old wooden ladders can double as quilt or towel racks when leaned against a wall. Even garden tools—shovels, rakes, and trowels—can be transformed into decorative or functional items around your home.

Sports Equipment

Almost anything that has a flat surface—from tennis rackets to snowshoes—can be fitted with a mirror to become instant home decor. Skateboards can pull double duty as shelves in a child’s room, and golf clubs, baseball bats, archery arrows, or skis become unique decorations when hung on a wall in various configurations. Old ice skates filled with greenery make beautiful holiday door décor. A glass container filled with old baseballs or golf balls will always spark conversation as a dining table centerpiece.


Revive tired wood chairs, desks, dressers, and tables that you’ve been hiding in your garage with a fresh coat of bright paint. Then invite them back into your house. Hang simple chairs along a wall: seats become clever shelving; rungs become hanging rods. Dressers can hold more than clothes. Use them to collect kids’ school supplies, crafts, and holiday decorations.
