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.
