Money Saving Tip #3.

When you move to another home you get to see first hand how much of a hoarder you have become. We lived in our first home for nine years and we accumulated quit a bite of stuff. I am also one of those people who can not let go of things very easily either. Just ask my sister n law, she had a field day helping us move. It was one junk drawer after another. I knew I had a lot of stuff, but I did not see it until we moved. I literally had a moving sale and was selling most items for 25 cents.When the moving sale was over there was a ton of stuff left over and I still did not get rid of the stuff (Hint hoarder). Well I would like to say there is no more hoarding. I loaded up my SUV and made a trip to the Goodwill. It felt so great to be free of that stuff. I am so blessed, I wished I would have gave that stuff away sooner.

So the money saving tip of the week is..... Donating clothing, household goods, cars, and etc is a great way to remove the clutter in your home and it is a tax write off too. My family is always looking for ways to itemize on our tax’s. When donating to the Goodwill or most other places they give you a receipt for your tax’s. Make sure you just don't lose the receipt, because it is the only one you will receive.

  3. This was funny! Only because I can relate... .When we moved to our new home, I kept clothes "I will fit in after I work out" because I just had my daughter and thought I would fit into my clothes. (DIDN'T HAPPEN) But it was hard andI did realize, the more i got rid of the better chance i had to get NEWER things haha
    Thanks for the tips! I especially didn't know about taxes after donations!
