Ten Things You Can Do With Your Storage Auction Treasures

One key to success is having a multi-faceted plan for the items you acquire in a storage auction. If not careful, inventory can become overwhelming, very quickly. 

Here are 10 things you can do with your storage treasures:

  1. Repurpose Furniture: Old furniture can be given a new life with a fresh coat of paint or by being repurposed for a different use.
  2. Sell Items Online: Platforms like eBay, Etsy, Mercari, Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace can be great for selling unused items.
  3. Start a Vintage Clothing Store: Old clothes can be popular among vintage enthusiasts.
  4. Donate to Charity: Less valuable items can be donated to local charities or thrift stores.
  5. Create Art: Old items can be used to create unique pieces of art or installations. 
  6. Upcycling: Turn old items into something new and useful, like turning old wooden crates into a shelving unit.
  7. Create a Rental Service: Tools and equipment left in storage lockers can be rented out to those who need them for a short time.
  8. Host a Garage Sale: This is an easy way to get rid of a lot of items quickly while making some money.
  9. Use Items for DIY Home Improvements: Old doors, windows, or hardware can add character to a home renovation project.
  10. Auction Items: Rare or valuable items could potentially make more at an auction compared to a direct sale.

Effective organization and inventory management are crucial when dealing with items acquired from storage auctions. Without a proper system in place, it's easy to lose track of what you have, potentially missing opportunities to sell or utilize items effectively. An organized inventory allows you to quickly assess which items can be sold, donated, or repurposed, and which ones could potentially bring you a significant return on investment. 

Moreover, good inventory management ensures you don't overstock, helping to avoid storage space issues and unnecessary expenses. Beyond the financial aspect, keeping your inventory well-organized can save you time and reduce stress, making the entire process of managing your storage treasures a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.
