Fear not for Bookmans is here to help!


If you are anything like me, extreme cleaning is something you try to get away with doing a few times a year.  When cleaning time comes you may be doomed to sorting through piles of stuff that you don’t use, need and sometimes don’t know what to do with it. Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be as arduous as you might be imagining it to be and we’re here to re-assure you that we won’t leave you hanging. Here’s a tip to help you get a  jump start.

Throughout cleaning you might find items like an old DVD or VHS player, houseware pieces you don’t use, a gaming console and games that aren’t being played anymore, even jewelry that you never wear. Whatever it may be, you have to decide which items you don’t have use for and be ready to let go. Hang in there, because once you have made your decisions the hard part is complete! Now you’re probably asking yourself “what am I going to do with all this stuff now?” Well, this is where our tips come into play!
