One of my New Year's resolutions was to start to get rid of stuff. We are lucky to have a large basement that seems to swallow up any excess stuff!
You name it we have it down there. So it was time to get rid!
I set myself a task of advertising & selling one thing a month on Craigslist so I could start slowly. Here is the results so far:
January: dog crate
February: old desk
March: old futon
April.........the car is listed so cross your fingers!
There is no point doing a yard sale as we are in the boonies & no-one ever finds us!
I have given lots of toys and clothes away to needy families yet we still have more!
A new thing that I did today was to take some of my daughters books to a book store that gives you credit to purchase more books. I have hesitated over this for a few months as I hate to get rid of books however with 5 readers in the family; books seem to breed & the local library is not too well stocked over here. So I took the plunge. The book trade store was packed with so many tempting books, if only I had a free hour I would have indulged myself getting lost amongst the literacy world however it was not to be! Who ever has a spare hour anyway??
Now she can go and buy more books at a cheaper price...lets see if this works as she can read a thick novel in 2 hours!
Do you have any differant ideas on how to get rid of stuff besdies the noramal selling, yard sales, giving away?
If so please let me know.
