Do a Little Spring Cleaning

by Justin Weinger on May 9, 2007

While today’s topic really isn’t too much about saving money – although it might help you make a couple of bucks – it’ll help you declutter your home and make your living space much more presentable.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got tons and tons of stuff around your house that you don’t use, don’t need, yet feel some strong desire to keep around just in case you might ever need it. Do yourself a favor, stop cramming it into the last couple of inches of closet space you have left and simply get rid of it.

The other weekend, I decided to go through all of the junk that had accumulated in the unfinished section of my basement; five hours and four big boxes worth of junk later, I had successfully decluttered most of my basement, and finally had shelf space for the stuff that really needed it.

Most of the stuff that I got rid of, I had completely forgotten that I had, or why I even still had it. I would imagine that you can find at least a box or two of similar stuff scattered throughout your home.

Whether you have a yard sale, sell the stuff on eBay or donate it to a local church or thrift store, is completely up to you, and shortly after giving up your stuff you might feel a sense of remorse, but in the long run you’ll be much happier once you get all of that needless junk out of your house.

Hey, and lets not forget that donation can be tax deductible! That’s money in my bank. 🙂
