Extra money found

April 24th, 2010 at 08:15 am

Thanks to Earth Day, we saw a segment on the Today show about recycling old electronics.

So I decided to check on the value of the electronics we have at Gazelle.com. Our two laptops that we never use anymore are worth a combined total of $268.

I plan to also recycle some items that don't hold any value (internal computer hard drive, Palm Pilot, our extra desktop and camera)

I'm looking forward to more space & more money in my life with less clutter.

This is not to say we may not one day get a laptop, but we've been holding onto these old electronics forever that just take up space. Its nice to know we are actually getting paid to do something good for the environment.

I also received the clothes I purchased so I went into my closet today and purged some of the items that I haven't worn in a long time. Essentially I have a basic rule, I receive 4 things, I take 4 things out. This way, clutter doesn't accumulate in my life and the clothes I get rid of are donated to Goodwill.

One of these days I'll get down to the essentials, for now I'm still working on it. Slowly but surely I'm getting there.

    I need to purge clothes; thanks for the reminder. Some of mine will turn into dust and cleaning cloths. A couple might get composted. Smile

    Is this a military thing or what? A dear friend of mine used to give me lots of hand-me-downs because she did the same thing. Darn her she moved to Florida 15 years ago with her doctor husband, both retired Air Force! Now I don't get the great hand-me-downs anymore. However, my coral bells in my yard are all from her. She gave me a bunch of plants and planter boxes when they moved and the plantar boxes are just now starting to fall apart. Yes 15 years later!

    Homebody, it might be... whenever we try to move we only have XX amount of pounds we can move so its a great time to go through everything we have to make sure we only move the essential.

    But that said, I'm also trying to adopt a minimalist lifestyle cause, at least in my life, more stuff = more time to clean and maintain it which equals time I'd rather spend enjoying life
