Lately I have been going through a lot of our stuff, evaluating what we need & use versus what has just been sitting around collecting dust. As I'm sorting, I have 3 boxes sitting beside me~I labeled them "Put Away", "Throw Away", & "Sell/Donate". We have been blessed that we have been given lots of things by other people, but when we don't use those things or need them, it becomes a burden. We don't have a very large home by today's standards, so the clutter really accumulates fast, especially since there are a few of us! Also, something to consider, for you & me, is when we hold on to something we don't need, we are keeping someone else from having it who could really use it. Now of course, as you go through your things & get rid of unneeded items, you don't have to sell what you are getting rid of, you can just donate it. However, we are in a place that we can really use some extra money, and my husband would like me to get some money out of all the things we are getting rid of. If you do decide to do this, you can try listing your items on eBay, or on Craigslist for free. I will attempt to sell most of our things on eBay, for very low prices. Most of my auctions I will start at $0.99, that way it does not cost much to sell. If something does not sell, it is no big deal; I will just place it in a bag for donation. Every couple of months or so, we will receive notice in the mail that an organization will be coming around for donations of household items. When this happens, I will just place our items curbside, & they are picked up for me! I really like to be at home as much as possible & don't like much running around. If you don't have this in your area, you can place your donation bag in your vehicle so that the next trip out you (or someone else) can just drop it off at your closest donation center.
You will feel so much better without a lot of clutter! And you will be blessing someone else with the things you don't need.
