Getting organized in North Orange County and South Orange County is a big step towards having the home, office, bedroom, bathroom, pantry, garage, living room, business and kid's rooms that you always wanted. But what do you do with the stuff you don't want anymore during the editing process of the project? First of all you make sure you don't sell or donate anything that you still love, that is sentimental, useful and or purposeful. Second identify items that are worthy of a garage sale or an estate sale versus items that will go to family, friends and or charity. If you go the sales route then where do you sell your stuff? Well, on OC Treasures on Facebook of course.
OC Treasure Hunt is designed by a Professional Organizer in Orange County named Marla Stone. Marla thought of the idea after over 800 customers in the past five years constantly wanted to sell their precious treasures or junk. She states "you know another household's junk is another household's treasure".
Over the years thousands of dollars of her client's items were going to charity thrift shops, but now with OC Treasure Hunt everything is selling quickly and efficiently. "My clients have great furniture, clothing, toys, electronics, kitchen, garden, tools, appliances that they just can't seem to find a buyer for anymore on Craigslist, so they turn to alternatives and Facebook is it!"
Marla is an expert (NAPO) National Association of Professional Organizer who understands the meaning of belongings. "Many people don't mind releasing items they have held onto and cherished for years, but they want to know the object will have a home where it will be loved and taken care of." People hold onto things that are not serving a purpose, they are not useful, or loved or even sentimental because they spent good money and they feel guilty that they don't want it anymore. Marla states "don't feel guilty, just find it a new home and be happy someone else will love it and you will get some of the money you spent back."
Clearing out clutter or Grandma's china or furniture you have tired of, clothing that is not your size anymore but in great shape, exercise equipment, or even old records and knickknacks is a good idea if they are not of interest to you. "It is stuff that just takes up your Real Estate" explains Marla.
Marla also provides Estate Sales Planning and holds Garage Sales regularly for customers advertising on OC Treasure Hunt and other on-line posting sites to get the best show and sales.
