Are you ready to upgrade or get rid of some of your stuff?
Rather than just throwing your stuff away, how about giving it a new life?
You can sell it on craigslist. I know sometimes that can be a bit frustrating so if you don't want to deal with selling, list your items in the free section of craigslist or free cycle (no, you won't get any money for your items if you take that approach, but you can weigh whether the money is worth the effort for you). Someone else may love your used item and then they do not have to go buy one for themselves.
Buying or selling things online gives our stuff a second life, saving resources and landfill space. "...buying a used leather handbag saves as much energy as a flight from London to Paris." (source - actually an awesome article, if you have a minute)
Give it a try! Craigslist, Ebay, Amazon, Free Cycle. Your options are endless!

(I may have shared this video before as I watched it in one of my college classes and loved it, but if you haven't seen it... I remember it from 4 years ago. Does that say enough?)
