Spring cleaning means reexamining everything that you have in your home. Do you really want to clean that old chair or table one more time? If the answer is no, it may be time to get rid of it. Old furniture also has a knack for filling up attics, basements and garages as well. When you have finally made the decision to get rid of a piece of furniture, you then need to decide what you are going to do with it. Furniture that is in really rough shape should probably be thrown out. If the piece still has some life in it consider donating it or you may be able to make a little extra cash from it. Remember, people love old furniture even if it isn’t in perfect condition.
