As we begin to kick off 2023, it’s the perfect time to consider your plans and goals for the new year. Many people like to have goals to declutter, get organized, save more money, or even start a new hobby. Pawn shops can help you make and keep some of your New Year resolutions! Keep reading to learn how.

Out with the Old

What better way to start off your new year than to clear out all the clutter in your home. If your resolutions for the new year include getting organized, there’s no better way to do it than to clear out your home of unwanted clutter.

Not sure what to do with all your clutter? Pawn shops are a great option when you’re looking to get rid of stuff. You can sell your unwanted items to a pawn shop. They’re always looking for new items to add to their inventory and you can walk away with some extra spending money.

While you may not think you have anything worth selling, it’s worth it to look around your home. As you clear out each room, keep an eye out for unwanted jewelry, coins in precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. Tools, car audio equipment, firearms, musical instruments, gaming systems and other electronics are always sought after by your local pawn shop.

Make Extra Money

Selling your unwanted, lightly used items is also a great, easy way to make some extra cash and start saving after heavy holiday spending. Pawn shops are eager to update their inventory with valuable items, antiques, or even the Christmas gifts you’ve received that don’t fit your lifestyle. You would be surprised what kinds of items pawn brokers will buy from you!

Start a New Hobby

Looking for a new way to spend your free time? Antiquing has become a popular pastime thanks to the new-found appreciation for older, well-loved items and reducing, reusing and recycling. If you are interested in antiquing, you might be wondering where to find your next great treasure. While flea markets and garage sales are a great way to start, don’t underestimate your local pawn shop!

Your local pawn shop is likely a treasure trove of unique items that would thrill any fan of antiquing, from beginner to professional. If you are surprised to hear that a pawn shop might have what you are looking for, it is understandable. Pawn shops are the secret weapon of many smart shoppers. However, it is always a good idea to arm yourself with helpful knowledge before you begin your search. Click here for more information!

Shop Smarter

While holiday shopping may be coming to an end, there are many reasons throughout the year you may need to find a gift or invest in a new item. For anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays reconsider heading to a big box store for gifts. You can find beautiful, unique, and affordable gifts at your local pawn shop that the receiver will cherish.

Need a new TV, sound system, laptop, or even just a small computer accessory? Don’t break the bank buying brand new electronics. Your town’s pawn shop has a huge selection of like-new (or even brand new!) electronics at affordable prices.

Another big plus to smart shopping at pawn shops is how much good you are doing for our environment and the community. By buying secondhand, you are drastically reducing your carbon footprint and supporting local business! Pawn shops often have negative associations due to movie portrayals. While there may be some shops that are dishonest, as with any business, most pawn shops are local, small businesses benefiting their community and helping you save money.

Emergency Pocket Money

Things happen, and sometimes you just need a little extra help. If you are in a situation where you need quick cash, pawn loans are a quick and easy way to borrow money without a credit check or hassle. Loans are based on the value of your collateral, not your credit rating or pay schedule. A typical pawn loan has a term length of 30 days, plus a 30-day grace period. If you cannot pay back your pawn loan in full, including any applicable grace period, many shops offer extensions to give you extra time. You may also choose to surrender your collateral as payment in full.
