Donate, Store And Consign Boxes In The Laundry Room
Members Were Sparked
I keep three large cardboard boxes in the corner of my laundry room. One is labeled "donate", one "sell", and the other "store". When I take my kids' clothes out of the dryer if I come across something that doesn't fit, I toss it into one of the three boxes. When the boxes are full, I bring the "donate" box to the Salvation Army and drop the whole thing off. I take the "store" box up to the attic where I sort it into bins to be stored. Then I consign or ebay the last box!

When the sale papers arrive I take 1/2 hour and go through them to write down what's on sale. I then plan my menu by the best sales. For the most part I only go to one store - once a week. If another store has one or two items on sale that are too good to pass up I will go but only for those item
Combine sales with coupons - save in reg. grocery stores more then big box stores.
Do you find that your house is becoming cluttered? Here is a great idea. When cleaning ask yourself if you have used it in the last year at all. If the answer is no and it is not something sentimental than gather it in a box and have yourself a yard sale.
Put memoribilia and sentimental things in a box or specific room so that it is nice and neat.
