Too much stuff!
It all has to go before the move, as mentioned in my last post, Quitting my Job.
We have about 6 weeks to de clutter and save as much money as possible. What better way than a good old sell off.
When you look at a cluttered basement or garage it can be very overwhelming. You ask yourself “Where the hell do I start?” and then just walk away and get nothing accomplished. Well there’s a better way of doing things that’s less intimidating. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
Little by little
Here’s what I’m doing and would like to challenge some of you to do as well. For the next 30 days, I’ll be putting one item for sale a day. That’s it, no pressure. Taking that small step isn’t all that intimidating and should only take 5 minutes a day. No excuses.
Consistency is key here. One bite at a time and next thing you know that elephant will be gone. Just take a look around. Can you see anything you haven’t used in 6 months or a year? You probably won’t miss it if you sell it.
But what if I need my thingamajig next month and I’ve sold it? Well then buy another used thingamajig for the same price. Selling stuff is like virtual storage. We sold a treadmill we weren’t using for $600 two years ago. If we ever want another one, I bet we can get an even better one for $600. See what I mean?
I’ll be updating this post every week with my progress so check back if you want to see how I make out.
Who’s up for the challenge?
Week 1- $95
