Since this is National Organization month, this is the perfect time to talk about cleaning your house. And since I’m the Garage Sale Millionaire why not make some money doing it?
As I’ve learned as recently as today, when you go through closets, garages and basements, there are a lot of items that you don’t use, not to mention items you didn’t know you had.
For example, I went through my closet today and noticed that I have a lot of baseball hats. I decided to pull them out and see if there were any that I could get rid of when out fell a watch. I don’t wear baseball hats all that often, so this watch had to be in there for at least a year. It was once my favorite watch, but since I had clearly forgotten about it, I haven’t worn it in ages. I could decide to keep the watch and start wearing it again, but I’ve since replaced it with other timepieces, so I think it’s time to sell it.
I certainly don’t think everyone is going to start organizing their closet and find a watch hiding in there, but you could find something else you didn’t know you had. It could be as simple as finding a few old records you don’t listen to, dvds you don’t like or a suit you don’t fit into anymore that could easily be sold. All these thigns can help you not only make space to organize your other items, but it could help you make some extra money to pay those annoying credit card bills that might be starting to show up.
Have a great week.
Good luck. And happy hunting!
