Powered by Mom Blog is on a roll with Spring Cleaning!
You may have noticed that many of my posts this week have been about Spring and Spring cleaning because it’s that time of year! We’re cleaning house literally from getting rid of our bathroom renovation materials, to cleaning out old toys, games, clothes and more to hopefully cleaning the yard after all of that is done!
As I mentioned in another post the other day our city has a Spring clean up week where we put almost anything we don’t want out to the curb and people can come and take what they want. Anything that’s still left by a certain date the city takes it away, it’s a great program and less items end up in the landfill as a result!
Wouldn’t it be better yet though if we could make a bit of money from some of these items? We have tons of old toys, kids clothes, CDs and DVDs we no longer want and for some of these things especially the DVDs I don’t want to put those out on the curb. We can try to sell them on Amazon or Ebay but I find between the shipping costs and fees it’s not really worth it for me as I have done that a few times.
There are other alternatives to clean out such items like Craigslist and musicMagpie so I might give them a try as I want to finish this Spring Cleaning and get more organized. It’s always a great feeling to get things cleaned up and organized. I always enjoy the results of my Spring clean up and I can’t wait for it to be done this year!
What do you do for Spring Cleaning to be more green? Feel free to comment below.
