It happens to all of us, we keep books for life, but there comes a time when it is impossible for us to keep them. At that point, we understand that we must give it an outlet.
But what to do with books you will no longer use?
What to do with the books you are not going to use
Do not despair, there are many ways to get rid of poundsSome of them are a little radical, but they can work, read on, and take note.
Give them to your friends and family.
What is old for some is new for others. Give your friends and family the books you want to throw away.
There may be many of them that also need or want to read them and you can get them checked out even if they are no longer yours.
Leave them forgotten among your friends and family.
The first thing to know is that books won’t always be well received. So if the donation technique didn’t work, you can try this one. Plus, they won’t be able to say no to you 😉
Take the books with you when you go to visit friends or family and leave them forgottenThat way, they won’t be able to tell you that they don’t need it.
Create furniture with books.
You can also build tables, benches, shelves with the books you no longer use. It is a way to recycle and give a second life to many books stored without any function.
Find a storage room.
If you love your books and don’t want to give them away or throw them away for recycling, then it may be a good idea to rent or borrow a storage room to continue storing them. So put your books in boxes and stack them in a storage room.
Free your books.
Another way to donate your books is to publish them in public places. So leave them in the stops, the metro, the cafeteria table.
In addition to freeing yourself from it, you will give a book to someone you don’t know and who may appreciate it.
Take them to the mini libraries.
That way, others will use it. Find out where the mini libraries are and take your books. You can also stock their shelves and take several with you.
Give them away.
Luckily you can take the books to NGOs, schools, libraries and organizations that may need them.
Also, if you categorize them and bring them exactly to each institution, you will have a better chance of receiving them.
Sell them through the networks.
The Internet can be your best ally in this case. There are still a lot of people who like to read books. You can also sell them at reasonable prices using social networks to offer them. This way you avoid having to print new ones with the expense of raw materials that this entails.
Start a used book business
Finally, you can turn the space problem and get rid of your books into a business. Besides getting rid of it, you can earn extra money.
You just have to find a place to exhibit them and offer them at a very good priceThat way, you can break free from those books that you love so much, but can’t keep.
Arts and crafts.
For example, flowers.
To the recycling bin.
If all of the above didn’t work for you. So we have to be more drastic, there are books that are no longer useful or that can be useful to anyone. Use the blue container for recycling.
