Used.ca and MOOLA have partnered once again to help people make money by digging deep into their closets, basements, and garages.
The #moolafordebt challenge, which runs from May 24 – June 9, puts another spin on spring cleaning by helping you find income where you didn’t think to even look. Click for full details.
“People often believe the secondhand market is just about saving money by purchasing used,” says Lacey Sheardown, president of Used.ca. “What they don’t realize is that, yes, you can save money and cut expenses to improve your financial picture, but you can also earn more. By unearthing those dusty treasures you don’t need any more and selling them to someone who does, you put money back in your bank account.”
We all know the adage ‘one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.’ So, it’s time to drag those framed paintings down from the attic, bring that desk up from the basement, and pull those boxed-up clothes from the closet. You will not only declutter your space but your financial outlook, too. Up for the #moolafordebt challenge now?
“When speaking to families about their goals and financial plans, we are told everyday, ‘I can’t afford ___’. That happens as debt loads are soaring, stress levels are rising, and clutter is growing. So why not create a win-win-win?” suggests Lindsay Plumb, MOOLA’s founder and chief financial coach-ess (with the most-ess).
“If a family can eliminate their debts, their cash flow increases by $200 to $600 on average. That is money that can now go towards kid’s education savings, retirement planning, and insurance for proper protection.”
Keeping stuff out of landfills is part of the Used.ca mission, as is bringing people together to create community with real human interaction in a digital-driven world. MOOLA Financial Coaches and Advisors help everyday people with money matters. They make the perfect pairing for this great challenge.
