Cleaning out the junk drawer

What treasures lurk in YOUR junk drawer?

Inspired by a cool blog post about organization, I’ve decided it’s time to clean out the junk drawer.  Again.  We actually have FIVE junk drawers in our kitchen alone.  Shameful, isn’t it?  The fact that we’re storing so many unused items in these high-traffic spots means seriously wasted kitchen real estate.  In the meantime, I don’t have enough places to put true necessities like my pan lids, clean towels, and other daily use items.  I’ve been complaining that we have a lack of storage space in my kitchen, but the true problem is that the space we do have is filled with junk.   [Read more…]

Make a few extra dollars this month with consignment sales

This summer we completed only a few projects from the to-do list, but one of them that made the cut was the cleaning of the closets. In the past, I was vigilant about selling my kids’ outgrown clothes on eBay or on forums where fashion-minded moms like myself were willing to pay top dollar for better brands. When my second child came along it became harder to keep up with the everflowing bins of outgrown clothing. I also wasn’t as meticulous about keeping the clothes in perfect resale condition, so I wasn’t comfortable selling them on eBay and depending upon buyers to read the descriptions for the fine print. I’ve given friends and family several hundreds of dollars in hand-me-downs but there was still an abundance of unworn clothing in my kids’ closets. This summer I decided to do something about it. Thanks to a bit of time and effort spent in going through these items, I was able to make a few extra dollars this month with consignment sales.

Dreaming of a white Christmas that doesn’t have me going into the red

This year I’m dreaming of a white Christmas that doesn’t have me going into the red. I’m on Year 2 of my mission to pay for Christmas without going into any debt. In years past, I thought nothing of charging the entire holiday’s worth of gifts and paying it back well into summer. Well, those habits are still haunting me today and we’re working hard to pay off that debt. I don’t want to fall back into the pit of owing money that we don’t have. So this year, I’m challenging myself to keep Christmas outside of our budget as much as possible. I also want to have all of my gifts purchased before Thanksgiving so I can just enjoy the holidays. Can I do it?

Getting rid of your old stuff without having a yard sale

This sponsored post contains affiliate links.

Summer is such a busy time of year.  While I tend to think that it will be more relaxed because we’re out of school, somehow it seems that we’re busier because I tinker around the house so much.  One of the things we do every summer is go through the closets.  Getting rid of the old is a good way to start the summer.  It’s also a welcome change to be organized once the school year starts….then the whole vicious cycle begins again.  While we’re going through our closets, I try to place items in piles with their destination in mind.  [Read more…]

College students: how you can earn some extra cash (no plasma required)

This post is brought to you by CampusBookRentals.  The opinions shared here are 100% mine.

Back in my college days when students needed to earn some extra cash, it wasn’t uncommon for them to hit the plasma donation center. It required being hooked up to a few IV tubes and sitting for two hours or so. This was before the days of Wi-Fi or even cell phones so most kids took a book to read. I was too chicken to do it myself, but many of my friends were willing to brave the IV for that money.  More than one friend came back with a nasty bruise on  her arm.  The plasma center was in a seedy part of town.  Still, the laundry needed to be done so the college kids did what they had to do.

Thankfully these days college students have a less invasive opportunity to pad the monthly budget. launched so that college students can benefit from renting their textbooks to fellow students.  Whether you’re still in school or you’re in those haggard months of job-searching after graduation, perk up your eyes and ears.  I’m about to help you make some cash-ola.
