If you gathered all your unused junk and sold it, how much could you make? A new spring cleaning survey found the average American has 42 unused items in their home . . . and could make $723 if they sold them all.
Women are a little worse about holding on to stuff than men are . . . 48 unused items compared to 36 for guys.
50% of us feel overwhelmed by all the junk we're still hanging on to. And one in five Americans are currently paying for a storage unit to deal with the overflow.
Here are the five most common things people keep but don't use . . .
1. Old clothes. 65% of us have clothing we never wear.
2. Books. 55% of us have a few we'll never read again.
3. Shoes, 48%.
4. Home décor, 45%.
5. Old electronics, 43%.
