Last weekend I sorted through the non-fiction books on the bookshelves and put aside about 25 assorted books which were no longer loved or relevant.
I listed the books on Freecycle and had one response from a lady who wanted 2 particular titles. So, today I took the books into Maleny with the vague idea that I would take them to the op shop or maybe the secondhand bookshop. I tried the bookshop first and was delighted to receive $30 for about 7 of the books. The rest then went to the op shop.
This has been a win-win exercise on all fronts. I have more shelf space and $30. People have the opportunity to buy a book in excellent condition. The op shop will make some money and the secondhand shop has some more stock.
What do you do with items that you declutter?
