Sale a day.....declutter and pay off debt

Options
Hi All 
Not sure if this has already been done before as couldn't immediately see anything 🧐.
My plan until the end of June it to list something for sale each day (except the days when I am camping). It will be through Facebook marketplace as I don't have eBay anymore as I spent too much on there! Hoping to make a few quid to put towards the debt as well as some much needed decluttering round the house! Todays item it a joe wicks cook book

    This is a BRILLIANT idea and I'm joining. I have so very many things I need to sell but I can't seem to find the motivation as it seems overwhelming so thanks for creating this challenge as I really need to crack on with it! 😁

    I look forward to us updating with how many items we have sold/how much money we have made.

    Awesome for joining in, hopefully we can both make a few extra pounds 😁.

    I've added another cook book and another pair of shoes the last 2 days. Hoping to get a car boot in next month as well now the weather is picking up
