If you are thinking of listing your home in the next year, you may want to take advantage of the spring and summer months to declutter, donate, ditch or sell. We all collect items that we don't use, wear or even like. If you would like to make a little extra cash before you list your home, then it's time to start preparing and organizing a garage/yard sale. 


What better way to reduce the "stuff" you have collected while earning a few extra dollars. In fact, if you put the effort in now, just think what you won't have to pack when you are ready to sell your home. No one wants to pack up these rarely, if ever, used items, and move them to their new home. 


I have compiled a list of tips and tricks for having a successful yard sale. You don't even have to be moving to take advantage of these strategies. Having a garage sale takes time, and here's hoping that these ideas will help you get the best buck for those old treasures.

Choosing the right executor for your estate can be as important as making a will. You can choose just about any mentally competent person over 18 as your executor. It could be your spouse, your children, a friend, a business associate or your lawyer. The executor can also be a trust company.

Is your home ready for the summer? I don't know about you, but I can't wait to open the windows and let some fresh air in. Typically, I spend the winter and spring months organizing, straightening and surface cleaning. To be honest, I prefer to spend those cooler days cuddled up with a great book or cooking up some new crock pot recipes. However, at the first sign of warm weather, I actually get excited about giving every inch of my home a shine.
I have found in the past that the best way to get the job done in a time efficient manner is with a "To-Do" list or checklist. I have included a downloadable House Cleaning Checklist here. I thought I would share my list to help you get started. It may seem a little long, but many of the tasks aren't that time consuming. If you start your cleaning with a sunny attitude you may also find the jobs get done faster. Turn on some music and dance your way through the rooms with sponges and rags in hand. Most importantly, plan a special reward for yourself when the list is complete. Good Luck! Get Cleaning!
