If you’re like me you’ve acquired quite a bit of stuff over the years. Some stuff will get used regularly; some stuff will hardly get used at all. It’s the stuff we don’t use very much that we should be concerned about. We buy it thinking we’ll use it one day, and yet so often that doesn’t happen. Sometimes this stuff is just stored in cupboards or it hangs on the wall or adds to the clutter around our furniture. With some stuff we get an emotional attachment. Perhaps it has sentimental value or it reminds us of some cherished moment in time. All very nice perhaps but everything has a monetary value, of course. Stuff can be turned into cash. You can’t take it with you when you go but with websites like eBay you could turn stuff into cash. That cash could then provide you with the funds to go on that dream holiday or to that place on your bucket list. Don’t hoard stuff if you don’t really need it. Turn it into cash and enjoy life whilst you can.
