Every homeowner and even many renters face the dilemma of getting rid of old appliances. For most of us, the thought of moving and hauling that large unit is daunting.
And, even if we get it out of the house or apartment, then what? Old appliance removal is a challenge. But it can be made easier.
Getting rid of old appliances is one of those tasks that no one really relishes. For many of us it is a chore that is either thrust upon us unexpectedly - like when the washing machine quits - or by choice, as when we upgrade appliances.
Everyone finds themselves needing to get rid of junk once in a while. And most everyone makes the efforts to properly recycle. But not everyone realizes that the two actions can be the same thing!
We are a nation of recyclers. At least we’re working hard at becoming one, anyway. Unfortunately, the U.S. currently recycles less than 22 percent of its recyclable waste according to a recent study by Yale University and the EPA.
Every home has a need for storage and most homes in America need more storage space than their house provides. As a result, most people end up using their garage to store their stuff. And that can be a challenge.
The problem with garage storage isn't always a lack of space, but how to best use the space that is there. It doesn’t matter if you only have a small, one car garage or an expansive three car structure. It seems that we are quite adept at filling up any space available and still have stuff left over.
Spring is a great time of year to replace your old appliances and update your kitchen and laundry room. But what do you do with your old machines? You could junk them, but there's a better option.
Once you've replaced your old, worn out or outdated appliances, you have to decide what to do with your old machines. Some retailers will take them for you, but you are likely to be stuck with disposing of them yourself.
We typically associate estate sales with the passing of loved ones. Or the unfortunate situations where there is no family to inherit an estate. But did you know you can auction off much of your own estate now?
