Your Clutter Into Cash!
Everyone has clutter and there’s money in that clutter.
Here’s the WHY, HOW, and WHERE to help you get started turning your clutter
is Not Good For You
Energy or "chi" naturally
flows around your home and when it encounters clutter it slows down and gets
stuck. Stuck energy from clutter can cause you to feel like you are in limbo
or stuck. Not moving forward in life. It's hard to get motivated to clear
you clutter with all that stuck energy. If the energy is really stuck,
you can become depressed. And of course looking at all your clutter can make
To Clear Your Clutter
CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME - If you want
any kind of change in your life, you have to take the first step. Make a sign
that reads "Change Begins With Me" and put it where you'll see it every day.
MAKE A DATE WITH YOUR CLUTTER - The
clutter you have didn’t accumulate in one day. It’s not going to go away in
one day either. Think of it this way. The pizza disappears one
slice at a time. Your clutter is going to disappear the same way.
Set aside some time each week for small clutter projects. Be reasonable
with yourself about just how much you can accomplish. Give yourself a set
amount of time to accomplish it.
ORGANIZE - Divide the big project of clearing
clutter into smaller, more manageable clutter projects. Make a TO DO list
and check off each thing you finish. Have separate bags or boxes for
(1) Things to sell (2) charity donations, (3) borrowed items (4) garbage/recycling
START SMALL - A big room might be too overwhelming
so start with something small, like a drawer. Take it easy and do one
thing, finish it, and then do another small thing.
REWARD - Make sure to reward yourself with
something when you finish your clutter projects. After you sell your clutter,
you’ll get another reward - money!
To Sell Your Clutter

yard sale and maybe a hundred people will show up to look at your stuff.
But millions of people are shopping on line right now and you’ll most likely
get more money for your valuable stuff by selling it on the internet.
