Mastering the art of the grind isn’t just about getting up early and staying up late. It’s also about being efficient with your time and energy and making space for non-work priorities too (#restday). Step one: Streamline your shit. And by “shit,” we mean your physical stuff.
Whether it’s embracing a minimalist wardrobe to make getting ready for work easier, organizing your desk so you can actually find what you need quickly or learning how to pack your bag, so you fit five activities into one day without running home, making sense of your stuff is going to help you stay motivated and on task as you move through the day—and ultimately help you get more done. Today, we’re encouraging you to clean out your closet by showing you all the ways you can make money off of your stuff. Pare down, level up.
The Marie Kondo effect is taking hold. Everyone is cleaning out their closet. Getting rid of ill-fitting or unwanted items not only keeps your get-ready sessions running smoothly, but it can also help you bring in some extra cash. Even a lot of extra cash if you’re someone who collects sneakers, watches and other coveted items. Of course, we encourage you to donate anything that doesn’t make the cut to charitable organizations that help those in need. Give outerwear to One Warm Coat, professional attire to Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits and shoes to Soles4Souls. Other items can go to Goodwill, Volunteers of America, or another charitable organization in your local community.
