Get Rid of Excessive Stuff
Excessive stuff in your home can cause a lot of stress for you and your family. As with everybody over the years we collect stuff and realize we have no room for the item. If you’re ready to become a minimalist, or just downsize, you don’t need to hire a professional organizer, you just need to make a plan. Start with one room at the time and get busy organizing.
Donating clothing and possessions is one way to get rid of them while helping someone else at the same time. Many area nonprofits that work with both people and animals will accept consignment items as donations and turn them into funds for that charity. There are several Goodwill Industries locations in the Midlands where you can drop off your unwanted goods and help them to create job opportunities at the same time. Getting rid of your paperwork, files, even memorabilia is easier than ever now. It can be scanned and digitized, taking up no extra space in your home.
C.H. Livingston Estate Services and Auctioneering and The Red Lion – Columbia’s Downtown Antique Mall, can help you with your clutter-busting in several ways. If you’re interested in consigning, C.H. Livingston offers a 20 percent seller commission for items consigned to auction.

Livingston’s knowledge of art, antiques, collectibles and contemporary furniture will help sell your goods in the right way, for the right price. The Red Lion is located in a 10,000 square foot space in the historic Robert Mills District of Columbia.
