Six Bags & A Suitcase...and Leopard Print Boots!
It’s that time of year again, Spring time! Which means spring cleaning for some of us. It was that time of year to do a deep clean! I’m excited I was able to let go of A LOT of stuff! Six bags and a suitcase just dropped off to the Goodwill plus a few bags of trash and couple bags of clothes and “stuff” given to my friend…and I’m not done yet! I must say it feels great to get rid of those items, I really didn’t need to keep that cheerleading skirt from high school, “just in case I dress up like a cheerleader for Halloween.” Like I would still fit into it anyway, LOL! By the way, my cute Leopard print boots that I have only worn maybe twice are for sale, but don’t you dare think for a minute I’m giving up my nunchucks! (That I just found and forgot about!)
The hardest part is yet to come….going through paperwork, books, and binders. Because I am huge into personal development, I love my books, education, training, so tossing those workbooks from my conferences and workshops is going to be the toughest thing for me to do. I am procrastinating now as I write this blog, because I’m not looking forward to that cleanse!
All I can say is Thank God for the digital age because otherwise I would have a zillion photo albums. Right now I may only have about 6 photo albums and 5 scrapbooks. Luckily my scrapbooking craze phase is over, I just released a few papers, scraps, items that I had collected in 2006 that I was going to scrapbook but never got around to it! I managed to collect some cool stuff from my first trip to New York City over Christmas that I need to scrapbook or put in a Shadow Box so help me keep accountable to do that sooner than later!!! (ok, I guess I still have the scrapbooking bug.)
Offer Up, Decluttr, and E-bay are great sites to use to sell items that you think you can get money for. I put a few things on Offer Up, we’ll see how that works out. Has anyone used these sites before and did you have good luck selling your items? I was considering opening an ebay account but not sure if it’s worth my time. Offer Up was simple to use.
