I'm a big fan of getting rid of EVERYTHING I don't need. The benefit is two-sided. I remove clutter and excess junk from my home. And, I can gain extra cash!
In December alone, I sold an old stool, bookcase and rocking chair. By selling these pieces, I gained extra space and $75 in my pocket.
Think of your unwanted possessions. Do they have value? If so, SELL it! If not, donate it. Either way, you will be pleased lighten your unwanted load.
