Minimize and Monetize – Living in your car or van

Just heading out can be a stressful time, but it’s where the adventure begins!

You will not be able to take most of your things with you.

That’s not gonna work…

So this is a great opportunity to sell off everything you own and get a monetary jump start on your new life.

Don’t be that guy!

Follow me on Pinterest for great tips on living a Minimalist life style.
Here are 5 tips to help you part with your possessions:

  1. Remember you are choosing this lifestyle
  2. Take pictures of keepsakes, and store them digitally
  3. Get rid of all but 5-7 outfits, remember how much room you’ve got
  4. As you toss things into the money making pile, tell yourself that if you ever change your mind things can be purchased again
  5. Avoid the temptation to rent a storage unit. It’ll be a bill and responsibility hanging over your head

Then have a garage sale, list the items on Facebook sale groups, etc. Monetize!
