Lifestyle Tip-Declutter and Make $

Hello All-

As you work to save money, you may realize (maybe you already do) that living on less and living simply tend to go hand in hand. When you work hard to save money, you really watch what you spend your money on.

As you go through various phases in your life you may need to clear out the clutter of a previous chapter. If you have a growing child, clothes get too small, toys become less played with, a hobby starts or ends. All these things can leave residual clutter around your house that keep your atmosphere or home from being the kind of place you wish to reside.

Consider donating your items to local charities, many take items of all kinds or to a friend who has kids smaller than yours. Also, consider selling your unused, but still worthy items on Craigslist or eBay. I have enjoyed working on this project this week and have made several hundred dollars removing items from my home that are clutter at this point, but very usable to other people. Right now many people are on the green theme of buying used and trying to save some money so they will be on eBay and Craigslist more!

Happy Living!

Summer H.
