The Great British Christmas Declutter

The Great Christmas Declutter

 

Wasteful Brits purge homes of 66 million bin-bags of stuff in preparation for Christmas 

  • Our research finds a third of Brits clear out at Christmas to create space for new gifts
  • The UK receives 81 million unwanted presents each year
  • One in 10 of these gifts end up in landfill

The extent of Christmas waste is revealed, with the latest figures show UK households are set to clear out a massive 66 million bin-bags worth of stuff – and that’s just in preparation for the festive season.

We found that almost two-fifths (38%) of British households will roll up their sleeves for a pre-Christmas clear out, with a third (33%) of Brits confessing this is purely to create space for new gifts.

Despite purging their homes to make space, almost two-thirds of people surveyed are expecting to receive unwanted gifts that they will never use.

In fact, most Britons receive a total of 81 million unwanted presents annually, with each household receiving three on average. Shockingly, one in 10 of these will end up in landfill.

Perfume topped the list of gifts most likely to be re-gifted or thrown away, while clothing and gadgets came in at a close second and third respectively.

Christmas Gifts

Our eCommerce Director Paul Treanor said Ziffit said: “I was surprised to find out just how many unwanted presents Brits accumulate each year. It’s also astonishing to see that, as a nation, we get rid of such a huge amount in the run up to Christmas, only to make space for more unwelcome stuff.

“Encouragingly our research showed that the nation’s first port of call was to take unwanted gifts to a charity shop. However, a third of the people we surveyed admitted they put these presents away and forget about them, while shockingly one in 10 Brits simply throw unwelcome gifts in the bin.

“We know from our customers that unwanted gifts can, in fact, be a real lifeline for your finances, with plenty of money to be made from selling presents online – and keeping them out of landfill.”

* The survey commissioned by Ziffit.com surveyed 2000 people across the UK in November 2016

Sell your Harry Potter CDs, DVDs, games and books

Journey back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Unless you’re a muggle who’s been living under a rock for the past few months, you may have noticed that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is back on the big screen this week. That’s right, J. K. Rowling has written an entirely new screenplay dedicated to the life of writer and adventurer, Newt Scamander.  People are excited. And we are too.

Not much is known about the full story of the film, the Warner Brothers bosses have been very good at keeping schtum. But what we do know is that the story is set in New York in the mid 1920’s, where Scamander has just arrived after completing his trip around the world on the look-out for magical creatures. It is here that he meets muggle Jacob and all hell breaks loose. Okay, not hell – just a whole bunch of magical and dangerous beasts. Oh em gee, what would Hermione say? We don’t know for certain, but we think it will take more than a quick disarming spell to fix this one.

It is because of this exciting new film, that we’ve decided to take a look back over the Harry Potter phenomena from the past 15 years. A franchise that spans books, DVDs, CDs, Lego, theme parks, clothing and that’s just the tip of the magical iceberg, there is more merchandise than you can shake a replica phoenix feather wand at.

Before we get carried away with the excitement, let’s bring it back to the products we know most about here at Ziffit.com and the cash we’re offering for them*.
