Assignment #8

DeClutter


I am a recovering pack rat. I still try to keep stuff that I feel we need, but not as much as I use to. I am also more  organized about it. 

Your project this week is to go thru one room. Make 3 piles
1. Trash
2. Donate/Sell
3. Move to another room ( just make sure it goes where it goes!) 

How can this save me money? 

For one, you know what you need when you need it. If you have an iron and cant find it, well you wasted the $ you spent on the iron. Two,  if you really need one now you have to buy a new one. 

You may also be able to sell or trade your items. Ebay, Paperback swap, Freecycle, Craigslist are just a few places you can sell, trade or donate you good stuff that you no longer need. 

A clean, organized room will also save you time.. and time is money!

  1. I just did this in my laundry room-I thought I was low on detergent and was eyeing up sale and coupon matches, but I thought I had more than I saw. Sure enough I had 9 boxes of purex 3 n 1 sheets. So now I have a bit of extra cash to buy something I am truly low on!!
