Closing in on 300 Purged Items!

It's Friday, which means it is check in time here at Frugal Upside. Loyal readers know that my frugal family is working to purge 2,015 items from our home in 2015.  The goals: decrease clutter, raise a little cash, and minimize the number of things that need attention (i.e. cleaning, etc.).  Since the first of the year we have now tossed 298 items overboard.  Most have been donated or sold via Craigslist or Ebay, earning us just shy of $325 (the bulk of which came from selling a laptop computer on Ebay).

In order to keep on track we need to find a new home for an additional 38 items in the final week of February.  I think we'll make that goal thanks to a new strategy I am putting in place this coming Monday.  Tune in next Friday for an update, and more on yet another way to lessen our load here in a frugal home.
