Since you are already working from home due to the coronavirus, now is a great time to do some spring cleaning and take inventory of all the items you own that are sitting idle in your home.

A Response to the Coronavirus

Rent Items is helping people respond to the coronavirus by providing a rental marketplace to generate an income with the assets you already own. Renting existing assets is a sustainable way to create an income and better utilize the assets we already own. In addition, it is a rapid response to helping your local community in need. One of the major benefits of the sharing economy and marketplaces like Rent Items is the ability to rapidly help each other during times of need. Being more resourceful and efficient is especially critical in a time like where something like the coronavirus blindsides us. We can mobilize resources rapidly and get them in the hands of those with the greatest need. Together we can make this happen!

Tips on How to Spring Clean and Take Inventory of Your Home

We suggest you start by making 3.5 piles. One pile for things that should be thrown away. One pile for things to sell as you will not be needing them or wanting to use them again. One pile for things to rent as you want to keep them and use them again but willing to generate an income from renting them to renters in need. And, a half a pile for things that you would be willing to rent or sell depending on what opportunities exist.

Renting is usually more economically beneficial for both the owner of the asset and the renter of the asset. Click To Tweet

 In the process, take the time to do some deep cleaning of your home. This process also applies if you have a storage unit that you are renting.
