Work Clothes

Once you retire you can say goodbye to whole wardrobes of work attire. Bye-bye business or business casual clothes!

Sell everything you don’t need anymore on Poshmark or threadUP. If those two platforms don’t fit your needs, take your former work clothes to a local consignment shop.

Just make sure to keep one or two suits or dresses for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries.

Exercise Equipment

While it’s important to stay healthy and active during retirement, we’re willing to bet you won’t use your old exercise equipment as much as you used to. Plus, if you’re planning on downsizing to a smaller home you may not have enough room for a stationary bike or treadmill.

Don’t worry, you won’t say farewell to all exercise opportunities! Included in your Medicare Advantage Plan, don’t forget about the SilverSneakers fitness program. Through it, you can visit selected gyms and take fitness classes for free.

Furthermore, instead of using equipment at home, it’s far better to take your exercise routine out in nature. Go on hikes, runs, go kayaking, and cycling whenever and wherever you can to keep active instead.

    I have old record albums from the ’40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Where can I find out their value, and where can I sell them?

    1. Unless they are in VERY good condition, i.e. not played, let alone played to death like I know my albums were, the value is very little. Find an independent record store in your area (bingoole it) and ask them, bring them a list.

  2. Not very impressed with this article. Author seems to think we all move into a 500 square foot apartment. The last thing I will be getting rid of is my musical instruments and favorite old music, my treadmill, my gardening equipment, etc. Why not just write an article titled “how to host an estate sale and sell off everything you own.”

  3. Luanne – I tend to agree with you. This article should read what to sell when you have to move into assisted living….
