Turn 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 into cash.

WHY 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 you depressed.

HOW  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!

WHERE  To Sell Your Clutter
Of course you can have a 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.  Your less valuable stuff can be designated for your yard sale.
