I can't say we're ALL microcosms of the extreme version of a hoarder, but lots of us are!

(I admitted some of my own tendencies here)

But think for a second about just how much junk you have...that you don't use. That you don't even WANT.  The top reasons, according to a survey, why we keep this crap?

  • "I might need it some day" (I've said this about every old tshirt/ill-fitting sweatpants I've ever owned)
  • Sentimental reasons
  • Laziness

In the same vein, 27% of us also spend at least 2 hours a week looking for stuff in the house we can't find...probably because a) we've got so much stuff to start with, and b) because it's something we just don't need/want anymore!

Turn that kind of stuff into CASH at this weekend's World's Largest Yard Sale!  You keep all the money you make...and you'll see THOUSANDS more potential buyers than if you were to just wait for someone to drive down your street for a garage sale!
