Breaking Up With Old Furniture? Here’s How to Move On

Picture of a plastic frog being lazy on a couch.

You and your couch have been through a lot together. You’ve had many great experiences and good companionship for a while. But unfortunately, the relationship has turned ugly.

For some reason, things just aren’t the same anymore and you want to move on. Don’t feel bad, these things happen to everyone. It’s time to make a change and start over with something new.

How to Get Rid of Your Ex (Furniture)

You’ve been eyeing up some new couches lately. Heck, maybe you’ve even ordered one and it’s arriving at your place any day now! But there’s still one big lingering problem — Your ex-couch.

It’s just sitting there, glaring at you. Trying to make things as awkward as possible. You could almost cut the tension with a pair of comfort-grip scissors. Enough is enough. It has to go! Here are your options … 

Let Someone Else Have a Turn

If you don’t want a piece of furniture anymore, somebody else might love to have it! Have you looked at Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist lately? People buy and sell used furniture all the time!

Selling is one good option, but you can also donate your old furniture to places like Goodwill. That, or you could ask your family if they want it. Maybe your brother-in-law could use a new couch for his man cave!

Recycle It!

You didn’t think we’d get through a whole blog without mentioning this, did you? Sometimes people don’t have much luck getting rid of their stuff. No biggie, not everything can be reused.

If you can’t sell or get rid of your furniture, it probably can be recycled (unless it has bed bugs, blood or chemical spills … You might be on your own there).

There are a bunch of things in furniture that can be recycled, including:

So, what kinda furniture are we talkin’ about here? We can’t speak for other recycling centers, but we’ll recycle any of these:

That’s a whole lotta furniture. Here’s our pricing information if you’re interested. But really, any of these options are good. Whichever one you choose will help you start a comfy new stage of life!
