TSA#50 – Get rid of your junk…and make money

Oct 30, 2012 by

Last year I ran a project called 1 A Week.   It was a simple way for me to think about clearing out the junk I don’t need, use or want.  Each week I would find one thing that I don’t need, use or want and either give it away or sell it on eBay or Craigslist.  It worked great and was a simple way to de-clutter my house.  Since then I haven’t been doing it once a week, but have been putting things into a pile that I wanted to get rid of.

I just cleared out that pile, taking some of it to Goodwill and selling a bunch of random items on eBay.  I just sold 9 items on eBay for around $120 bucks.  Not too shabby.

And several of these items were things that I have been storing in my garage or closet for years and doing nothing with.  Some of the items I was SURE would not sell at all, but thought I would give it a try and they ended up selling for the most money!!  People want your junk!

So this week, take a look around your house and start cleaning out the items you don’t need use or want anymore.  Put them all in a pile and then decide what to do with it.   Donate it to the local Goodwill for a nice tax deduction or sell them on Craigslist or eBay for some nice extra Christmas money.

Either way, your house will have less clutter and you can have a little extra space to breath.


TSA = Truly Simple Actions The goal of the TSA project is to improve your life and help make this world a better place, one simple action at a time.  Take time this week to do this one simple thing. Previous TSA’s:
