This week, I listed some things on eBay. I was going to list more items, but after searching similar listings and seeing that if they sold, I might make just a dollar or two, I’ve decided to just skip the hassle and donate the cheaper items.
I went through my bookshelf and pulled out all books I never plan to read and have no reason to keep. I entered their ISBN on Amazon.com and Paperbackswap. None of my books were worth much on Amazon, so I listed them all on PaperBackSwap. If I don’t get rid of them all by the end of September, I’m going to cart them off to Goodwill.
We’re making plans to get rid of my old desktop PC and computer desk. Our computer chair will probably go, as well as an unused television.
Though this is the largest apartment I’ve lived in, at 900 square feet, there still isn’t a lot of extra room. It feels great to lighten the load and get rid of things we don’t need. If we can earn a little money from our efforts, even better!
