Craigslist – Sell all your stuff for free.

Trusted Housesitters – Find housesitting and pet sitting opportunities all over the world. $99 per year, but probably the biggest data base. A good percentage are in Australia and the UK.


Housesitters America – Another website with housesitting and pet sitting opportunities. $30 US only opportunities. Ever improving processes including penalties for non-response.

House Carers – Housesitting and pet sitting opportunities. $50 to join and well worth it. We’ve seen a marked improvement in their site and are starting to use this more. We’ll report back on our success or not.

These sites pay for themselves in 1-2 nights stay. On average we paid around $50 per night for a cheap motel.

The Clean Out! Homeless Donations From a Soon to be Homeless Family.

How attached are you to material belongings? Could you just sell or donate everything you own? Marketing has us working jobs we hate, to buy shit we don’t need. Everyone’s debt is climbing and the cost of living is increasing exponentially making it harder and harder and nearly impossible to ever get out of debt. We’re running up school debt, only to graduate into a market of less and less opportunity. What no one ever teaches you, is to do what you love, what your passionate about, whatever that is.

Like my school debt, I have some things I can’t get rid of too. My bass, my reclaimed barn wood office desk made by my wife and kids, to name a couple. So, we’ll need a storage unit, which costs a hell of a lot less than rent on a 4 bedroom townhouse plus utilities. In fact, we found a 15×10 for $75 a month! The power of Google.

We are selling most of our household belongings on Craigslist and donating even more to the local Homeless Shelter. Old jackets, clothes, suits, shoes, kids clothes, soap and shampoo taken from hotel rooms over the past few months. Maybe someone else can use this stuff to get back on their feet? I really hope so. I’ve been serving meals at the shelter for a few months now and there are some truly wonderful people who’s day to shine again is coming soon and they could use your old stuff too. Plus you can write it off on your taxes and lets face it, if you haven’t worn it in the last year, you’re not going to wear it again, seriously.
