Hello Friends! 

I’ve been very busy this week getting organized and have found some really cool Good Will treasures that I can’t wait to share with you soon.  First though I spent the day going through my biggest source of clutter and found a neat “Techy” way of getting rid of them.  Allow me to explain:

My biggest source of clutter is my books.  I am an avid reader,  I probably read about 5-6 books a month so you can imagine just how many books I have.  As a matter of fact I have so many that I converted my dining room into a library so I could have a place to store them.  Even doing that though they are spilling over into every area of my house so it’s time to reduce and share the love.

In my attempt to figure out how to reduce and recycle all these books I realized that I have bought so many used ones over the years and that got me thinking – why not sell MY books?  It turns out that it is very easy to sell your books on Amazon.com.  (check it out here)  So I set up an online store for myself and I am going to try and move these books out of the house by sharing them with others at a reduced cost.  I guess it’s like a virtual garage sale.  My site is called Read-Cycle and I hope to be able to reduce my stockpile of books over time.  (I’ll let you know how that goes).

Anyway I just wanted to share this idea as a way of recycling things and making some pocket change.  Obviously this isn’t a way to make a ton of dough but if I want to purchase more books I now have a way to pay for them and move them on to the next person to enjoy.

I’d love to hear from you about how you are reducing-reusing & recycling!  Leave a comment below!
