Do you have old film cameras you haven’t used in years? Do you have inexpensive digital cameras that took poor quality pictures? Do you have lenses, tripods, charging cords, cases and other accessories that went with these cameras?
If you don’t use these things, donate the items or give them anyone interested. The crummy digital camera could amuse your eight-year-old and show whether they will be responsible for a newer camera.
Do you know you have these items shoved up in the attic or tucked into a box stored … somewhere? If you aren’t exactly sure where your camera is, don’t worry about trying to locate it right now. Just know that when you find it at some point this year, you can clear it from your home.
What if it is an antique camera? Is it on display in your home? If not, is it really that important to keep or could you try to sell it to an antique dealer or sell it online. If you aren’t interested in displaying it, is it really that significant to you?
