Spring cleaning is more than just cleaning, it’s also about finding new opportunities hidden behind or underneath the clutter.  If the prospect seems depressing, the article linked below points out that there could be financial incentive for you to do so.  For instance, if you received a gift card for a store you would never think to go to under normal circumstances, it suggests the following option:

$973 million worth of gift cards went unused in 2015, according to the professional services firm, CEB. If you have gift cards you’re not planning to use, consider selling them on sites such as CardCash.com, Cardpool.com, GiftCardZen.com and Raise.com.

The above sites purchase gift cards for less than face value and then resell them at a discount. For example, you can get back up to 92 percent of a card’s value at Cardpool.com. You also can exchange gift cards for cash at Coinstar Exchange kiosks in grocery stores.

Seems worth it to us, if all it’s doing is taking up space in your wallet.
