A while back, I had the opportunity to attend the Get Radical Conference. There, the panelists, keynote speakers, and fellow attendees poured into me with inspiration and practical tips. They wanted to get me from where I am to where I want to be. I was enlightened since I could use these tips as a short-term solution when I’m strapped for cash. But, I could also turn them into a legitimate side hustle for long term financial relief.

Over the course of that weekend, one word kept replaying in my head. And that word was SHED.

Yes, shed– reduce, get rid of, do away with. And in all aspects of my life: SHED unwanted relationships that no longer serve me, SHED unneeded weight that I have been holding on to, SHED toxic habits and ways of thinking that drown out my higher self, and for the more practical, SHED material items that I don’t need, don’t use, and don’t help me live aligned to my truth.
For this post, I am going to focus on the last piece: shedding material items that no longer serve you and because I’m frugal and entrepreneurial, I am going to share with you how to maximize your financial bottom line in the process.
If you are looking to SHED for a season, reason, or lifetime, take note of these sites and use that money toward your emergency fund, paying down debt, or toward investing in something ( an experience or idea) that you really love.
