Without question, our home purchase is the biggest, most expensive investment we will ever make. According to B4UBuild.com, homes can cost an average of $112 across the country, but range from $55 -$328 a square foot. Many things factor into the cost of a home, but whether you live in 1000 square feet or 3000 square feet, that's a lot of money.
I've found a really inexpensive way to add space to your home.
I call it real estate investment.

It's really quite simple. It's a do-it-yourself DIY that is Pinterest worthy.
Every Walmart size bag that goes to a thrift store, giveaway, or trash "buys" you another cubic foot of space in your home. Don't believe me? Try cleaning out your closet! You'll have more space.
So, if the cost of your house per square foot is $100, every plastic bag of clutter is worth $100 of real estate! Now, that's real estate investment!
Ladies, let's grab our bags and invest!
