One of the ways I'm able to get rid of some of the things I'm purging for money is Facebook Yard Sales. Nearly every geographic area has Facebook groups that are used specifically for buying and selling yard sale type things. Last night after purging half of my closet, I just started taking pictures and posting them on one of the many Knoxville yardsale groups. So far, I have a few meets set up to sell a couple of my nicer clothes. The other stuff that I didn't think would sell as well will either go in a box to have an actual yard sale this spring or be consigned or donated.
I've found as with any lifestyle change, it's good to have something to motivate you. Besides gaining freedom from stuff, having a vacation to look forward to after months of letting go of things I've held on to forever will be some great incentive.
What about you? What are incentives that work for you?
