declutter during covid
I saw an article in the media this morning talking about dcecluttering during this covid time and about how over full the venues are with cast off junk and clothes and such.
One business that is doing well is the folks who haul junk. But, one problem is that they don' have as many ways to get rid of it, either.
Some of the usual suspects are full to the brim with stuff and are only taking limited amounts.
I think that there are two sides to this at this moment.
The first side is that we have too much stuff and need to get rid of it and not to go out and buy more. So. there is lots of it. But a lot of it is pretty useless stuff and not really the things that anyone really needs.
The other side is that there may be a budding market for good second hand things that do fit into the category of need.
While we are getting rid of the unwanted stuff, there may come a time when we look to the resell market for those things that have come to be in short supply and are of more need.
I think that kids toys are going to be among those short supply things in the coming holiday season.
One good business that might see some good times in the near future are these shops that deal in reselling kids clothes, toys, games,beds, and the like.
It is going to be a sparse holiday gifting season this year, for better or worse.
