It’s easy to identify furniture that kids have outgrown; however, don’t discount furniture that adults have outgrown as well. As an adult, you may have outgrown the need for a piece of furniture – the rack for the CDs or DVDs you’ve donated or sold; the folding chairs that used to accommodate the extra relatives when you hosted holiday dinners; the bed that belonged to your son who now lives in another state in his own home.
Question family and friends who live nearby if they’d want any of the items you have. Sell items that you think you can make money on; donate the pieces; or pull them to the curb with a “free” sign.
