Turn Procrastination into Dollars

I have a confession to make. I am a DIY impulse buyer. When I go to Lowes to pickup supplies for my current project, I sometimes bring home things for future projects. Last year when I decided to organize my tools and supplies and I labeled one box “To Do” and through all the things I’d bought, but never gotten to in there. My idea was that when I had caught up on projects and was looking for something to do I could tackle items in that box. Yeah, right.

I finally came to my senses and decided to reduce my to do list and make some money in the process. I through a bunch of stuff in my to do box into a bag and took them back to Lowes. One thing I love about Lowes is their return policy. I returned items I’d had for years, showed them my driver’s license, and they gave me a merchandise gift card with almost $60 on it.

So if you’re looking for some extra money for a project you WILL do, look round for things you bought for projects you probably WON’T do. At the very least, instead of storing your supplies for future projects in a box in the basement, get your money back and let Lowes hold onto them.
