Money brings problems, Money is tight.
I am pretty sure that the statement above is true for MOST families
right now. I know for us every day we
are very careful of where our money goes.
Since Jeremy’s surgery our medical bills really skyrocketed and we were
faced with thousands of dollars of debt.
It was heartbreaking.
not in the spring. When I started
thinking about where to start in my purging I
immediately looked in the corner of our TV room and saw a huge stack of CDs,
DVDs, and Video Games that Jeremy and I hadn’t touched in over 5 years. I also saw all the wasted money that sat in that corner. How sad that we bought so many items that we never use! I did some research and found an easy online tool to sell your unwanted items. When I first went to Jeremy and told him my
idea of selling his CDs and Video Games online he was NOT happy but when I
showed him the musicMagpie website he decided that it was worth a try. I think what really made us decide to jump on
this was the fact that we hadn’t touched these items in so long.
the “Spring Cleaning” mode is a timeline.
If I have clothes that I haven’t worn for over one year I decide to move
those items to a donate pile. I have the
same rule for household goods as well.
Don’t forget to get your tax receipt if donating to a Tax Deductible
agency – you will see some return in your decluttering after the first of the
year! I have a new rule with selling DVDs, Video Games and CDS now, sell if you haven’t used or watched with in
the last 6 months! With musicmagpie I
can easily go through our TV cabinet and find DVDs that haven’t been watched,
CDs that haven’t been played and Video Games that haven’t even been opened that
will put money back in our pockets! Not
to mention clean up our TV room!!
items!! I have already had some luck on
Craigslist with Infant Items selling pretty quickly! I like this!
No more garage sale mornings and crappy turn outs to sell our stuff. With Craigslist, Ebay, and musicmagpie we are
moving towards a better living area one CD/DVD/Video Game at a time.
