July Challenge: Give away 100 things

I had so much fun with Just Cash June, I’m going to do another monthly challenge next month: get rid of 100 things in the house by the end of July. Venessa is doing it too, so as a house we’ll be rid of 200 things total.

Cleaning house reduces clutter, and may allow you to move into smaller living quarters or take on a housemate, which will save big bucks. And giving things to charity is a tax deduction, so either way you’re helping yourself and the community.

I cheated and started early, by clearing out some books and other assorted things from my bookshelf:

  • 20 books
  • Exercise band
  • Map of Yellowstone

I have a few other things on the chopping block that I need to find. The basement is a mess, which means there’s a lot of things down there that will go. I’ll make updates throughout the month of July to track my progress.

    1. Yay! Let me know how it goes! I’ve already found about 30 things, so I might up the ante. Give away 1,000 things?!

    1. Awesome! Maybe the person who gives away the most things can get a prize: pick any one thing from the 100s of things the rest of us are giving away 🙂
