Cha-Ching! 7 Ways to Make Money by De-cluttering Your Home

Donate to Charity


If, at the end of your efforts, you still have some stuff that didn't sell, donate it. Donations are tax deductible, so even if you don't see the money right away in the form of cash, it will pay off when you do your taxes. Places like Goodwill and the Boys and Girls Club will all be happy to take your unneeded items. Some charities, like the Salvation Army and the Vietnam Veterans of America, are even willing to pick up. Do a search to see what is available in your town and which you'd like to donate to.

Donating is also a great lesson in generosity and selflessness for kids. Ask your child to set aside a certain number of items she'd like to donate to charity. Talk to her about how her contributions will help someone in need, and ask her how helping others makes her feel.
