Spring: Oh How I Love Thee!

Spring is my favorite season. I love hearing the birds chirp every morning, seeing the grass turn green, the smell in the air when it rains, and waiting for the flowers and leaves on the trees to grow. My birthday is also in the Spring, so you know I love that too.

Spring cleaning A couple of things that are not quite as likeable for me are:

1. My allergies wreak havoc on my daily routine. I am either sniffling, sneezing, blowing my nose or dealing with a sore throat. Naturally, I would rather sleep than work. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

2. Spring cleaning is not exactly what I consider a "fun" warm weather activity. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

Don't get me wrong, the day-to-day, make your place look neat, type of cleaning I can handle. But, when it comes time to sort through all of my kids' clothes, toys, and other things they don't use anymore I cringe. I always ponder whether I want to go through the hassle of having a garage sale. I refer to it as a "hassle" because I live in an apartment and we do not have a garage. So, IF I have one, it would be at my parents' house. That usually means I need to pack everything up, bring it over there, unpack and organize it all on tables, haggle with people all weekend long, etc. Then, whatever does not sell, I have to pack it up again and either bring it back home, donate it, or throw it away. There is only one word that comes to my mind for this: "blah".

Thankfully, another option for selling the many DVDs, CDs, and games we own is Music Magpie. All I have to do is enter the information from the item I want to sell on their site and they will tell me its value.

What are your tips for clearing space in your home and earning money at the same time?
