Spring Cleaning Made Easy and Profitable by and its Network of Local Canadian Online Classified Sites

Victoria, BC – March 20, 2012 is encouraging Canadians everywhere to utilize online classifieds to kick off a fun and prosperous spring season and to say goodbye to winter. March 20th, the first day of spring, is always a good date to start thinking about getting rid of items that won’t last another winter, to look for great deals on discounted items for next winter and to start searching for bargains on things needed for the spring and summer.

For winter items there are a couple of factors to consider. One is that online classifieds offer a great opportunity to unload old winter stuff that may not make it through another season, in turn freeing up space in your garage or basement. By putting items up for sale online you will not only get a head start on spring cleaning but you may also make some money that you can use to buy stuff you will need for the spring and summer.

If you happen to have some storage space available another possibility is that you can often find great deals on items like snow blowers and ski equipment because they are now out of season. With that in mind, if you know you will need to replace stuff next winter you can shop on your local city site and potentially find great prices so you will be ready for the first snowfall late in 2012. For example, here’s a link to many of the snow blowers for sale on

Spring and summer “must haves” that you can find bargains for on sites include barbeques, bicycles, patio furniture, gardening supplies, camping equipment, sports gear and lawnmowers (e.g. Lawnmowers on UsedVictoria). There are many of these types of items available on all ‘Used’ city sites.

“Canadians can find the supplies they need for spring and summer and save money by searching on our online classified sites, rather than paying full retail prices for new items,” says Erin Richards, Marketing Coordinator. “Our members offer up a wide variety of lightly used items and because you can meet sellers in person in your own community you can try before you buy.”

Early spring is also a good time to start searching for summer vacation options. You will find a wide range of cottage rentals and summer homes for sale on UsedEverywhere’s sites.

The family of sites, established in 2003, is Canada’s biggest Canadian-owned online classified network. There are local city sites in the UsedEverywhere network across the country including UsedOttawa, UsedWinnipeg, UsedRegina, UsedVictoria, UsedCalgary and more.
