National Old Stuff Day is an annual American holiday celebrating old things. It’s finally time to clean your house or garage, getting rid of junk that has accumulated over the years. The holiday is celebrated on March 2. It’s time for a general cleaning!
The habit of putting off old things existed in society centuries ago. At that time it was explained by the general financial situation. Most people simply did not have the opportunity to buy a new item.
However, for some, the habit of putting off old things has become a source of profit. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth in England, the second hand shops that we know today were in great demand. The owners of such a business quickly realized that there is always a demand for second-hand items, especially from the lower-income segments of the population. Products in such stores were very cheap, so demand was always high.
The National Old Stuff Day celebration not only allows you to make a little extra money by turning in old items at second hand. Think of the holiday as a day of self-renewal, when you get rid of not only the junk in the garage, but also throw away unnecessary people and bad memories from your life and start on the road to your dreams.
- Stuffed with old things, unneeded garages and warehouses are often the subject of auctions in America. People fight for them, hoping to find there something valuable by modern standards, rare things.
- Psychologists say that getting rid of old things and general cleaning allows you to feel more free and lift your spirits.
