PostSubject: Giving versus selling   Sat Feb 11, 2017 5:27 pm

My wife and I are virtually hoarders.  We own a small, SMALL house with no storage and have accumulated a lot of stuff.

We joined a Facebook group called 2017 Things In 2017 that is dedicated to reducing clutter in the home by 2017 items.  We were in it last year and never even broke 500.

This year, we have been much more committed!  We have reduced almost 500 items in TWO MONTHS.  We've given most of it away.  We could have tried to sell stuff, but if we aren't using it, we just want it gone.  We don't have storage to keep what we are getting rid of if we can't sell it in a couple of days.  So, we've given stuff away to Goodwill, our local community help center, posted a couple of free items on Facebook, and hauled the rest to the dump.  It is working!

So far, I am liking giving stuff away instead of selling it.

I need to work on that myself. I don't use a good amount of stuff that I have. I want to sell some of my guitars, for instance, but no one seems to be buying. I have a ton of books that I haven't read in a while, either.

We don't seem to have this problem in our home (at least not too much anyway).  My wife will periodically go through the house and "declutter" which always means a trip to Goodwill to get rid of a bunch of my stuff.

We've been decluttering over the past few years and it's been good.

Our house seems to be full of toys and the kids are adamant that they need everything and can't get rid of a single thing.  So in the end I get rid of some of my stuff to make me feel better!

Getting rid of stuff for free is great, I try and do it that way all the time.

I'd take a guitar but it's not in the budget.

I have been trying to downsize myself, in the last month I have sold almost eighty items on eBay for about $ 1000. In addition I made a trip to the landfill, and made several bags of clothing to take to Goodwill. It's amazing how much junk we acquire every year.

I've sold quite a bit of stuff over the last 3 months but I haven't made near that much... more like $80.
I've actually brought several books to work and put them in the break room with a sign that says "FREE" and they were gone in 2 days.
