Money Saving March Day 5

money saving marchWelcome to Day 5 of Money Saving March! Each day during the month of March we will take on a new challenge that is easy to do and will save or earn us some extra money. 

Well, March is certainly coming in like a lion with yet another winter storm. Today, I think we need an easy money-saving task that will also help improve our homes.

The challenge for today is to go around your home and find at least five things that no longer add meaning to your life. Place these things in a box or a bag and set them aside to either donate or sell. Selling the items may earn you some cash, but if you donate them instead, you can get a write off on your taxes.

After doing this little purge, the items will no longer take up valuable space in our home, so you won’t be paying the square footage just for storing things you don’t really need or want. If you rent a separate storage unit, then today’s challenge can have even more impact. The more clutter you remove from your life, the closer you are to removing the monthly storage fee!

Ready? Set? Go!

    Great idea for a challenge! Inspiring. How about this? i am getting together a couple of packages of things to send to friends. I can’t buy gifts right now, so I gather some of the things I already own that I think friends will like and benefit from receiving. Hopefully, they’ll enjoy what I will send them. If something doesn’t trip their trigger, it’s all good. They know I am cool with them donating or re-gifting. I have really enjoyed the things friends have sent me, as well. Now, if someone would just decide they don’t want that spare BMW sitting out in the garage…. 😉
