Saving: Closet cleaning tips, and ways to earn cash!

It's finally starting to feel like spring. So let's do some spring cleaning and make you some cash!

First, InStyle Magazine suggests when paring down your closet and de-cluttering, you need to do some soul searching.

Marie Kondo, the author of "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up," says there are a few key questions to ask yourself including:

- Am I keeping this just because?
- Do I want to see this again?
- Has this outlived its purpose?

Can't go at it alone? Hire a virtual organizer!

Book a Skype session with Geralin Thomas from Metropolitan Organizing and she will give you honest, unbiased advice on what to ditch, donate, or save.

It's not cheap, though. She charges $100 an hour.

Then, once you have earmarked the things you want out of your life, you can earn some money!

Liketwice.com is a new service that sends you a bag with prepaid postage to fill up with your gently used clothing and handbags.

They offer you a cash value and then can either donate the rest to Goodwill or return it to you for a $5 fee.

Finally, if you have things you want to keep but you don't want them cluttering your closet right now, consider Makespace.com/air! It's basically the cloud of closets.

For $25 a month you send them your stuff, they photograph it and keep it in a secure facility and then if you want something back, you can get it in just a few days.
