Thrifty Thursday – Making Money at Car Boot Sales

Firstly I’ll start off with an apology for the lack of Thrifty Thursday recently. It’s been a bit manic here what with end of term and all the things that it entails.

I’ve been on a mission the last few weeks to get our house more organised and get rid of anything that we no longer use or need. I’ve been slowly building up a collection of unwanted goods in our downstairs toilet ready to sell at a car boot.

Clear out the clutter

This picture above was when I just started to clear out. By the time I had finished you couldn’t get into the room at all. Last Sunday I packed up the car and the kiddies and we headed off to a local car boot sale.

It was quite a long day as we had to get up really early to get a space but it was definitely worth it as we made a grand total of £57 which has gone into our ‘Making Memories’ pot which as you can see is starting to look very healthy…

Normally when we have a clear out I just give all of our old stuff to charity as I’m too lazy to try and sell it but this time I was determined to give it a go and I’m glad I did. Especially as we had so much stuff to get rid of.

It has really spurred me on to sell more items that we no longer use. I have a real issue with clutter a the moment, I find it stresses me out so if I can get rid of it and make some money in the process it’s a win win situation.

Now for this weeks…
