When my son vacated his room as he headed out for parts unknown, he left me with a big bag of stuff to give away. Inspired by his pile, I added some of my own stuff from the garage (including a large non-descript picture frame that’s been waiting for just the right size piece of art for about ten years…) and a few things from my closet.
I put it all in the car and drove straight to Goodwill. Feels so good!
Craigslist is working only on the inexpensive oddball stuff. Today a woman came all the way over from a town south of Portland to buy my two zinc florist buckets for $15… and she doesn’t even know what she’s going to use them for!
If I were paid for the time it takes to write up the listing, the net price I get for the stuff would probably be $0, but for now I’m enjoying the baby steps.
Listed the humongo McGuire desk again last night for $350. So far not a nibble on , however. Eating humble pie – from $1000 to $850 to $350. I’m getting close to groveling, saying, “FREE!!! just carry the !@#$% thing outta here!”
