Selling everything also has me wanting to minimize or omit the unnecessary components in my life, too. Let me tell you how this ‘sell all process’ is going, what else has been taking place, what I am learning, and what I am gaining.
Progress this weekend:
Husband decided he wants to have a garage sale (yeah!)
Cleaned out 1 Closet and started sellable pile
Husband added that we should ask my mom Mom now going to participate in our garage sale
Mom has lots of stuff - a lot worth more than a garage sale
Stated I would help her list on eBay, Craigslist, etc… for a small percentage of the sale
Cleaned out costume jewelry box (wow, clean)
Cataloged and bagged costume jewelry for garage sale
Also, repriced Half.com items for lower than suggested value – want to get out of my inventory!
What else has been taking place
This process has me cleaning out the unnecessary components in my life
I’ve cleaned out email inbox(es)
Unsubscribed to non-pf mail lists I have no time to read
Let me tell you with three email addresses and lots of subscriptions – this was a big task!
Cancelled 3 online accounts with automatic monthly deductions (gained $31)
I’ve gained a way to make extra money helping mom list things online (this is not the same thing I was referring to in this post – this is in addition)
Less stuff to burden my household
This is not going to be a quick process
But if I keep at it, then the process with prosper
Process worth keeping to become debt-free: PRICELESS
Husband brining home circle stickers
Have kitchen stuff in my trunk that I need to take pics, price and write sale description
Post kitchen sellables and gift cards online tomorrow at work (we have a work ‘eBay’ – it’s pretty cool)
Go thru next closet or kitchen cupboard
Consider selling cat – nah, Just kidding!
