If you are spending too much money on second-hand stuff, why not have a garage sale to sell the stuff that you don’t need? It’s spring in the US so we started spring cleaning too!
My dear sister got the courage to sell our beloved magazines, (most in pristine condition), unused cosmetics, pre-loved clothes and a lot of slightly used stuff like indoor antenna and cellular booster. It’s our way of cleaning and earning too!
We sold the back issues of our favorite magazines at P10 each. Not bad considering that these magazines have been on our book shelves for ages!
The imported cosmetics at P5 – P25, books (textbooks she accumulated all these years but definitely NOT my precious books!) at P10 – P50, and many, many others!
If you need any Smart Parenting, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, OK, FHM, Good Housekeeping, Working Mom magazine, just send me an email at entrepremom[at]gmail[dot]com then I’d be happy to check if we have a copy of it. 🙂
P.S. Our garage sale is so hi-tech that we’re using a CCTV camera for monitoring hahaha
