Its that time of year! Time to open the windows, air out the house from its long winter slumber. Time to get the house back in order after months of new toys, great food, and hunkering down through the cold of winter. I have here some personal tips and a list of web articles to help you get started on your Spring Cleaning journey.
For those who are not quite ready to start their Spring Cleaning actions here some great incentives:
As you find unwanted items or items that haven’t been used in years, you have the opportunity to make extra cash by:
A) Selling them in a garage/yard sale
B) Taking them to a resale shop that will give you cash or allow you to pick up new items from around the store
C) There is always the opportunity to sell on facebook or Letgo
and D) If you don't want to take the time to have a garage sale, post online, or if you simply are just tired of adding more stuff into your life you can always take everything to your local goodwill or charity drop off and redeem the voucher during next years tax season.
