My closets and spare bedroom are bursting with stuff that needs to go. We’ve got toys the kids don’t play with, clothes the kids have outgrown, and stuff we don’t use or need anymore.
Being surrounded by so much clutter is very stressful for me. I don’t like things to be in so much disarray. I don’t like being unable to find the things I want to keep. It’s a lot of work to keep up with all this junk.
So, I’m embarking on a Turn Clutter Into Cash Challenge.
Over the next 30 days, my mission is to significantly reduce the amount of clutter in our home while raising some extra funds for our holiday shopping. My goal is to make $200 from this challenge.
I live in a pretty rural area, so a garage sale is out of the question for me (plus, it’s getting cold out). Craigslist isn’t a great option for me, either. So I’ll be unloading my items by selling them through local Facebook groups, word of mouth, consignment shops, Amazon and eBay. I also plan to donate quite a few items, for which I can get those coveted tax receipts.
I will also be working hard to resist bringing new stuff into the house during this time.
I’ll be sharing my progress during the Turn Clutter Into Cash Challenge (either here and/or on Facebook), so you can follow along. When the month is done, I’ll report back on how I did and what I learned from the experience.
Are you looking to turn your clutter into cash, too? Join me in this challenge! I’d love to hear what your goal is and how you’re planning to reach it!
