Recycling Pays

As I mentioned in earlier post I am saving to make the big move to another state but before you can truly move one has to get rid of some of the baggage that is holding me back. To do this I started a “Moving West or Burst” Jar that I have put all my extra change and money I get from reducing my baggage. Today was no different. Last Sunday was Pawn Sunday in which I pawned off clothing that I no longer wear or have never worn but bought thinking that I like the outfit and will wear it some day but that day never came. Today I decided to recycle. I had a whole lot of metal fencing that I packed from a previous residents to the current residence thinking I was going use it. Two years later the fencing was still not set up and now I am planning on moving. Long story short, I took the metal fencing to a scrap metal yard and low and behold they paid me 50 dollars for all that scrap metal fencing. I was going to let recycling take it but I made a little profit that can be used towards the moving fund.

In trying to reduce my clutter I made a profit.

What Baggage are you still caring around whether it is physical or mental? Is it time for you to get rid of old things that aren’t useful to you anymore? What are your thoughts?
