Selling your home is a huge endeavor — so big that you might not think of all the details surrounding the sale, such as the home’s furnishings. If you’re looking to maximize profits, consider selling your furniture, because it’s worth something too. But is this the right move for you?
Making a furniture plan
Furniture is often an afterthought in the home selling process. But it’s a big consideration and deserves some thought before you list. Here are some possibilities for what to do with it:
- Sell your furniture with the home.
- Bring it with you when you move.
- Have an estate or garage sale.
- List it online, such as on Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) Marketplace or Craigslist.
- Sell it through a consignment sale.
- Donate it.
Let’s explore what you should know about selling a furnished home. If you decide that isn’t your best option, you can always choose one (or

This ecologist was told she could keep her natural garden. Here’s why she’s fighting city hall anyway
An ecologist is challenging Toronto’s long grass and weed bylaw, even though the city exempted her from having to cut down her natural garden — which is home to tall shrubs and trees, as well as butterflies and chipmunks.
Nina-Marie Lister, an ecology and urban planning professor at Ryerson University, says she never asked for an exemption and she rejects it. Instead, she and her lawyer are arguing that the bylaw itself is unconstitutional and outdated, saying it goes against the city’s own pollinator protection and biodiversity strategies.
“[The current bylaw] really stands in the way of individual citizens on a small patch of yard trying to do the right thing at a time of biodiversity collapse and climate crisis,” said Lister, who was also a consultant on the city’s own biodiversity strategy.
The two are now drafting a replacement bylaw to present to the city this fall.

Saturday Kitchen chef James Martin has quit social media after receiving backlash for his virtual cookalong event that was branded a “disaster” by attendees.
The This Morning chef says that he has been the target of “vile abuse” by those angry that they had experienced technical issues during the sold-out cooking masterclass.
Martin held a virtual cookery class on Saturday 3 October, which invited fans and foodies to create a three course meal alongside Martin during the 90-minute experience.
The menu was set to consist of a start of halloumi with chilli jam, a main course of chicken saute with vinegar and pilaf rice,
The early days of this pandemic were terrifying. I spent the first week glued to my screen. I watched every news conference, obsessed over case numbers and signed up for three different streaming services.
Through my social media feeds, I could see that friends and family were doing the same, but gradually things changed.
Fear was replaced with sourdough, banana bread and pitch-perfect flaky pie crust. Anxiety was channelled into impressive kitchen projects. The kitchen became a source of joy.
Well, that has passed.
Most people are back to making the same five dishes on rotation and trying to pass off cleanup duty to their roommates and partners.
We can do better. Here are my tips for fighting kitchen fatigue during a pandemic:

Kim Kardashian gave a behind-the-scenes tour of her kitchen on Instagram this week — revealing both a bevy of frozen-yogurt sprinkles and her kept promise to stick to a plant-based diet.
The tour was Kardashian’s rebuttal to mockery she received on Tuesday, after posting a photo of herself promoting her SKIMS line. In it, the 39-year-old modeled the clothing while standing in front of a near-empty fridge that contained mostly milk products, prompting comments such as “Y’all eat air too?? coz I see no food in that fridge ma’am” and “I see nothing in that fridge that reflects a family with 4 kids haha! I just cant relate. Sorry.”
And so, on Wednesday night, Kardashian brought fans into her cavernous kitchen spaces through Instagram Stories. “OK, so since the inside of my fridge is so baffling, and I saw all
