June - A money making month

I decided that for June I will be doing a big no spend challenge, but not just avoiding spending, I would also sell off everything I don't need or have been meaning to list. I have boxes of stuff to sell. If I haven't sold it or at least listed it by the end of June I am going to get rid of it.

I feel like a lot of it is just a weight on my shoulders, so really needed to set this challenge to help me clear out my life. Our budget has increased recently and we need to be cutting expenses more and increasing our income. I am looking for a job, so selling off everything kind of feels like a now or never sort of thing. I don't want them to be a focus in my life for much longer.

I have not been going to counselling for myself as my daughters speech therapy was more important to me and quite expensive. I am updating things like our life insurance, want to update our will etc but all these things require money.

As such, June will be spent on things that can save us money, reduce the amount of stuff we have and not actually spending the money we earn.

I'll be blogging about it on my other blog and you can join me if you like.

No Spend Just Sell Challenge


  1. Yes, I think you should sell stuff to live a better lifestyle! You'll make a little bit of money and have less to think about. Remember that less is truly more!

  2. That is great! A couple years ago, my wife and I sold tons of stuff online to clear out the house and to pay down debt. It was well worth it and it felt like a huge weight was lifted off of our shoulders once it was all gone!

  4. A little bit of spring cleaning.. Nice idea. Im about to move myself and will be doing the same. Some I might just give away.. others I will try and sell.

    Good luck on the selling

  5. Thanks guys. It has been on my to do list for a while, so it will be good to finally finish the clean out and make some money.
