It is Spring time in Houston! The time of year we all love to be outside and enjoy the few weeks of amazing weather before the summer heat wave blows in. This is also the time of year many of us start our “spring cleaning.”
This year my goal was to purge old clothes, furniture, or outdated items that I no longer use. I have spoken with several people who have had the same goal in mind and I wanted to share a few places you can go to sell your items to make some cash, or simply donate.
