In my quest to rid my home of any unnecessary plastic, I'm realizing I have some things that once were very useful but now, just add to the clutter.
My FoodSaver vacuum sealer, several containers and other attachments finally sold on craigslist. Thanks to all the extra room I've discovered in my cabinets through this process, I was able to stash all of this on an empty shelf so I did give this setup extra time to sell.
A few weeks ago, I bought a smaller FoodSaver unit that is meant to seal those containers and the ziploc type bags (but no heat element for the rolls of bags). With a couple of cheap, small parts from the hardware store it can be easily adapted to seal canning jars with the attachment I bought to use with this larger unit though which is all I really want. Since I replaced the item with something so similar, I'm only counting the difference in the costs and what I sold for toward my total. Definitely counts as an item though with all those containers going too!
Total cash so far this year from decluttering: $575
