I belong to a family of hoarders. Whenever we declutter our rooms and get rid of old things, we never really throw them away. We just send them all up to a magical place called the attic. This is probably the reason why I’m too scared to go up there. (That and my childhood fear of ghosts or “mumu” as I would call them. But hey, that calls for an entirely different post.) As much as I’d like to believe that our attic is an abyss that will forever solve our problems, it’s far from a bottomless pit. Sooner or later, it’ll run out of space and our house will turn into one big garage full of my mom’s unused plates and appliances, dad’s old golf clubs and luggages,my brother’s car accessories and audio equipment, my…well, I’m a blogger so I’d say my everything, and my sister’s… Hold on, she just might be the only hope for this family. (And is probably the reason why I was almost fooled into thinking our attic is indeed an abyss that never gets full.) She’s the one who TIRELESSLY NAGS us about selling our old and unused items, instead of just keeping everything in our attic. She takes all our unwanted stuff and segregates them into either keep, donate, throw or sell. The ones for selling, she sells online. She has tried quite a number of buy and sell websites but ultimately, she prefers OLX. She has sold so many random items, from small ones like gadgets and clothes to bigger ones like old chairs and tables. Because of her and OLX, my family is slowly learning to say goodbye to our stuff and get rid of them for good.
You should try it! I know we tend to get a wee bit too attached to our items but it feels great to find them new owners and homes through OLX. It’s super easy too. Just visit this page and you’re on your way to decluttering your home. Trust me, you’ll feel so much lighter–figuratively and literally speaking. Just look at how happy these people are on this video! They clearly do!
