I have begun decluttering the basement this week. Of course, I will have multiple posts this week on

Payday is Thursday. I will use some of the extra funds to pay off the Discover card. I used this to buy all the paint for our living and kitchen area. Actually we have enough to paint our bedroom and bathroom yet. I used the Discover card because they were offering 5% back on Home Improvement stores. I can already see about $17+ in rewards. The plan was to pull the cash from savings, but when their is extra in a current paycheck I prefer to use that money so it doesn't feel like I am touching the savings.

I have two bids on some music I decluttered earlier in the month. I moved them to auctions after two weeks listed as Buy It Now. People do like an auction!

Will you use a credit card at a Home Improvement store this spring for any additional rewards? Do you like fixed prices or auctions?

    Good on you for tackling a de-clutter project. Would you find it helpful flat fold the brown mailing boxes by slitting flaps and re-assembling when needed, with a slice of packing tape. We hold the stack together with an elastic repurposed from old pjs and stand on edge to take up minimum space. We only keep product's original boxes for a month or so in case we find the product defective or have cause to return it.

    Flattening the boxes is a great idea, snafu! Not sure I will for now, since they are stacked inside each other for the most part and makes it easier to see what I have.
