It's that time of year when the days are starting to get longer, which means spring is just around the corner. We're now into the beginning of March, which means spring is in a few weeks, and Easter is towards the end of the month. What does that mean? It's time for some spring cleaning! It's time to rip apart your homes to clean, organize, and recycle the items that you no longer need. Yes, it's time to rid yourself of those items that you haven't used for quite some time, as there's other people that would love to own some of your hand-me-downs.

Many people start getting ready for garage sales... that's a sign that spring is here, and summer is around the corner. Why not recycle your items, and make money at the same time?! It's been done for many years, but now it has become quite common on websites online. What one person may consider junk, is someone else's treasure. That's where Music Magpie comes in.

If you haven't used an item for at least a year, it's probably time to get rid of it. You probably wouldn't miss it if it somehow disappeared. That is my rule in my household... if no one has used it in the past year, we no longer need it. I used to be a fan of throwing things away, that was until I realized it's better to either donate everything, or put it up for sale. I was quite surprised at how much the items could generate by selling them... especially since they were just gathering dust being forgotten! Music Magpie is an awesome website online, that you can sell your items that you no longer use. Recycling your unwanted items like CD's, DVD's, electronics, and of course video games, helps you bring in some extra cash, make space, and helping the environment.

So with spring just a few weeks away, it's time to get started on the spring cleaning... out with the old and in with the new! Start the season off fresh and new, and with some extra cash in your pockets... every little bit helps.
