So I’m halfway through the month of January. Here is my latest purge.
I’ve currently sold three books and one pair of shoes for a profit of $37.18. It seemed like it would be more, but once you subtract shipping fees and ebay fees, it decreases quickly. I read that someone got rid of things as a way of paying it forward for all the good deals they got at thrift stores. This is the frame of mind I’m aiming to achieve, but I’m frugal and also conflictingly hope to rack up a nice amount of cash for items I’ve sold.
Here is where I am at on my to-do list.
I have two more weekends left. I feel like I can make it.
So far I’ve learned it is better to keep all the doors open while you are decluttering. The longer you stare at certain items the easier it is to realize that you don’t need/use it. I’ve also learned that I had way too many items that expired in 2013 in my pantry.
