De-Cluttering Much??

June 28th, 2008 at 11:13 pm

I just added it all up and we have $800 of stuff listed on craigslist. Not that I expect $800. I always start high and am amazed how many people take full price. But I expect less for most of the stuff listed.

But I have been trying to sell some old crib bedding and stuff with no luck. Ebay would probably be better except the crib bumper is just so bulky. But I am starting to rethink it.

So I am hoping this stuff has better luck. We'll see...

& anyway, this is not pure profit. Dh spent $200 on a Wii/accessories he is trying to unload (for $300).

He has another one to list after this one. We took a listing break with vacation.

With my MLM stuff, and the second Wii to sell I guess we might clear $1k profit. We have a few other little things.

Feels like a small start to a BIG process. Big Grin

I have a pile of a few ebay things, and I am sure I will find more. I also have a pile going for goodwill. We don't bother selling anything unless we can easily clear $20. Maybe a few larger things if we can get $10+.

Anyway, I have up 5 listings, and dh has 3. We'll see how it goes.

I am thinking to next weekend, and we need to prepare for the kids' birthday parties. & we have lots of July plans. So we are hitting it hard this weekend while we have some time.


I dropped my camera twice last week - once in the dirt. The zoom is giving me problems today. We bought it around 2002 or 2003, and I don't even remember how much we paid.

I mentioned it offhand to dh, and he said maybe it was time for a new one.

I was like, "No way!" and then I asked how much it would be (having no idea). HE said we could get twice the mega pixels for $100.

I think ours is 4 megapixel (don't quote me on that one though) and it was totally awesome at the time.

You could sell me on $100 for a new one with a major upgrade. Surprised dh hadn't asked sooner. LOL.

But yeah, I Was just going to say we can sell the old one too, but not for very much since it has issues, now that I think about it.

Anyway, I am completely shocked with how cheap a lot of these things have gotten over time. When I think of all of our electronic gadgets, I don't think much as far as price, since we tend to buy a little behind and keep things forever.

But as far as the camera, $100 for a major upgrade seems pretty reasonable. We can even keep the old one for the kids. Could be a good compromise since I know BM would love a real camera but we haven't wanted to shell out the bucks quite yet. He's a little rowdy. Wink I mean look what I did just being a clumsy mess on our trip. Frown We didn't exactly have any problems with the camera and would have kept a few more years really... I guess we'll keep an eye on it.

    my dad just bought a used (1 yo) Wii, why are people selling already? He bought because they are STILL too hard to get new.

    I don't know but there are TONS for sale around here (no doubt mortgage crunch related - many). There are so many put up so cheap so dh keeps snatching them up.

    A lot of them just said they were bored with it.

    BF has had 2 Wii's. The first one he got lucky with and just happened to run to Walmart on the morning they had had some in. Then his sister decided that she wanted one (I'm not sure why - they lived in the same house at the time)... so she bought herself one as well.

    BF got bored with his and sold it to my aunt for my cousin's Christmas present, at almost full price. Then his sister got bored with hers and offered to GIVE it to BF. He ended up selling it to a friend after a while, and gave his sister part of the money.

    So he's had 2, and sold two. Maybe it's a guy thing? Smile
