{ virtual garage sale }


This is what I am going to do this rainy weekend in Colorado...sell stuff on ebay. This huge pile does not include the entire SUV pile of stuff that was donated last week to the VOA thrift store...I really did spend my 20's aquiring stuff and now am spending my 30's getting rid of it! I am re-inspired to de-clutter some more and clear out some more space after reading Andrea from Superhero Journal's latest post. Here's my favorite part of it... "And so I started my cleanse by clearing my physical space. I purged the heck out of it, selling everything I could, cleaning and organizing all the cluttered up nooks. I even pretended we were moving and considered each item with the same precise question, If we were moving right now would I bother putting bubble wrap around this and putting it in a box? I loved this task and felt like with every item I let go of, the more my mind could be clear, the more space there was to breathe." Aren't you inspired to create some breathing room too? All of you not doing the spending hiatus, stay tuned for more goods being added to my ebay account. Those of you on the spending hiatus, don't look! :) Hope you all have a great weekend! Stay tuned next week for a great guest post by Tara from Ink+Wit, more cheap summer fun ideas and some great giveaways coming up!

we just moved, and a company packed us up. now as i'm unpacking i want to set aside some boxes to either donate or sell on ebay too. the less junk i have to clean and pick up the better.

i read that post too. good thinking. bring on the rain. I can't do inside stuff when it is nice out. especially in my parts.

the quote was so fitting for me. Thank you for sending it my way. Yes, I had to just change everything!!

I love purging things. I seriously get a small high from it. I've never used e-bay, and often use Craigslist. Do you prefer e-bay?

OMG-- my sons tooth just fell out...gotta go!
