Great tips! You should also take a look at the price of scrap metal.

.75 a pound! That old broken down car, old lawnmowers , old BBQ grills and so on... can bring in a nice penny when you get them to your local recycling center!

I am seriously a clutter bug, but I'm learning to be more stern with myself about it!
I now donate anything that I haven't worn in 2 years (with the exception of a formal gown or two...can't seem to part with those!).

And paper clutter....ugh! That's the worst. Working on that!

Great site, by the way! :)
