Clearing Clutter

Martha Stewart Living, April 2006

Give your home a refreshing sense of order by clearing out clutter. Organize a tag sale (check with local authorities about regulations), or sell things in an online auction. Consignment stores, which often specialize in specific merchandise (such as vintage furniture), will sell items for a commission and a fee. If you're getting rid of books, apparel, or furniture -- and you itemize your tax deductions -- you might do best financially by donating items.
