A New Year is here once again and a great idea would be to declutter your home. You’ve realized that you had way to much fun and spent all your Christmas bonus. You have lots of new items, gifts from your loved ones, and not a lot of available space. Not really a good start to the year, I guess!
Leading Online Classifieds Site, OLX is advising users to get rid of unused items like duplicate gifts or things they have not used in the past 6 months by posting them on the site for sale.
Uche Nwagboso, Public Relations and Communications Lead, OLX stated that “As we look towards a clean start in 2018, this is an excellent time to declutter your home of unused items. We all have a tendency to always want more, and to hold on to things we deem sentimental but how many things do we really need, especially with the acquisition of gifts during the yuletide season”.
Nwagboso also added that “Most people are usually financially strapped after the festivities and the average household is sitting on thousands of naira in unused items like smartphones, electronics and furniture”.
With the OLX platform users can post their items across several categories on the site which gives them access to a lot of buyers to make win – win exchanges. Users are implored to meet in a public place to ensure a smooth and safe transaction.
