Cash for Clutter

Now that spring is here, it is the perfect time to clean out the basement, attic or garage among other areas of your home.  For some people this is an overwhelming task that is not a lot fun or involves a lot of work and then they do not feel very motivated.
If you are one of these people, try finding something to motivate yourself.  I have found that money is a pretty good motivator!  Decide what you want to eliminate from the area and then find out if any of it is worth any money.   There are many places you can advertise your items for sale that are free or fairly inexpensive.  You can list items on Craigslist, Ebay, the Bulletin Board, the news paper or if you feel up to it, have a yard sale.
*** If you are going to advertise your items, first list the items and do a little research so you know its value before setting a price.
*** Designate piles for trash, donate, yard sale, ebay, newspaper or yardsale.

*** If you are going to have a yard sale be prepared for the weather.  Have a back up plan.  Also, have a plan for the items that do not sell.  They CAN NOT go be brought back into the home for any extended length of time!
