Migonis Home is a blog I follow.
Is anyone else giving this a go?
But I have been quite intentional about making a list of what I want to clean out:
|We call this awesome vintage wooden trunk my|
parents gave us the Treasure Box. We keep games and
blankets in it. Not treasure.
Which of course will add to the tally
(that I am NOT keeping)
towards the goal of 365 items
gone out of my house.
I have managed to clear out all those mysterious Legos that i found and put them into my car to donate
in the near future
because they keep rolling around in their Ziplocs making a pretty big racket when I'm driving.
I have also cleaned out our humongous TV armoire of unwanted board games and DVDs
which amounted to 3 FULL bags
wait for it
We have sold
and they always give us $17.00.
No matter what.
I think the whole waiting for your name to be called with an offer is just a false pretense leading you to believe they are carefully picking through your stuff, looking up their values on some proprietary online database and then carefully tallying the totals.
They have already been trained to offer $17.00.
Or it could just be us.
Yeah, it's probably us.
Having this list of what to clean out is proving quite handy.
Ellie wanted to make some extra cash yesterday without taking any money out of the bank.
She asked for a savings account for her birthday last year.
I quickly referred to the list
decided it was all too much for a 10-year-old to tackle in an afternoon
but then gave her the coat closet to clean.
It looks amazing!
And we have snow pants and snow boots in a bag ready to be donated.
I also made her vacuum.
(Because I just didn't feel like it.)
So, in conclusion, the challenge is still ON
I am just being more realistic about it.
