You think you’re worth it and you’ve got your ‘why’. You’re ready to get started on the first tangible step.

Stuff…

It’s just not worth it. 

It’s all going down in value. It’s not giving you the pleasure it once did when you first bought it. 

Debt freedom and financial security are so much better than a few trinkets here and there…

It’s time to sell your stuff and make some money!

You can then use the funds to build up a little savings account and start paying down your debt aggressively!

Like I said, it’s totally worth getting rid of a few things

  • a quad
  • a fancy mower
  • a car
  • a bunch of random stuff around your house

Whatever you have that has value and doesn’t give you as much joy as debt freedom would, get rid of it!

I’ve been there, done that. I don’t miss the stuff.

  1. What would you sell to get ahead financially?

    A fancy snow blower? A car? Your house! Tell us in these comments!

    • Lately, I have been thinking about selling an old Toyota Tacoma truck that’s been sitting in our garage. We don’t drive it often and yet we still have to pay for registration and car insurance. Sounds like it’s time to sell it, huh?!😃

      • Probably, yup. Fix it up as best you can, sell it for some dollars, and then use those funds to propel yourself through these steps!

  2. I love selling junk, been “doing” eBay for 20 years, great way to make extra cash!

    • Yeah, definitely fun to make money on junk!!

  3. We have spent half of our married life accumulating stuff and now we are spending the second half trying to get rid of it. Glad you are teaching people to live with less!

    • Hahaha. That’s a great way to put it. It’s good to keep ourselves in check with all the stuff we have. It’s all just going to the landfill some day anyway…

  4. We probably need to get rid of our third car. I also have so many clothes I’ve accumulated. I won’t be wearing them in retirement (I’ve barely worn them in the last year of working from home. I think about selling a lot of it. Right now, I donate a lot of it.
