Stashbuster Decluttering

I have alot of quilt books that i bought "just because" they aren't something that I will ever use and they are taking up valuable space! Even found duplicates...ugh. I don't have a huge stash to bust but has helped me to curb a lot of unneeded "just because" spending.

A friend suggested that I checkout (my I'd is quiltedpecan)

You post 10 books and get 2 free credits. Each book equals 1 credit and you pay for outgoing postage for the books you are sending to other people and you get one credit when they receive the book. You then can use those credits to get other books and have free incoming postage. Pretty good idea and I've got 8 books ready to mail and I only posted them yesterday. Quilting crotchet and sewing books are in high demand I guess.

Now the true stashbusting part....use the credits that you've received to order books for gifts etc. My daughters both read like crazy and this is a way for them to have the new book everyone is reading without mom having to pay $20 for it, kinda like getting some of the money back from my past "just because" spending.

  1. That's a great idea -- one of these days, I'll get organized enough to try it!

  2. I'll have to try that site also. I have lots and lots of books.
