Selling Goodwill Stuff on eBay

Your Awesome Stuff? It’s Just Stuff — Musings on Decluttering  February 4, 2013 – 06:11 pm

Decluttering. Overwhelming, yet boring. Anxiety producing yet cathartic. Simple yet multi-tiered.

Why, oh why is it so much harder to get rid of stuff, than it is to acquire it in the first place? !

I’ll tell you why. Because once you bring something into your home it imprints on you. It becomes your responsibility, and that sense of responsibility takes over.

“Can’t just throw this advertising ball-point pen away, I have to make sure it goes to someone who can use it.”

or

“This enormous platter probably has some value. I should open an eBay account and sell it.”

or

“My great aunt Ethel gave me this set of cheese forks as a wedding gifts. I love her, therefore I should love the cheese forks, even though I’ve never used them in twenty years of marriage.”

or

“I should keep this huge pile of scrappy towels, as I might need to clean up something messy some day.”

Multiply this by a thousand, and you’ve got an insane number of decisions to make. And if it takes you an hour to get rid of each and every unused and cluttery item in your house, you will never get to the point of a decluttered home.

How do I know this? Because I have gone through this, and continue to go this this mindset. I see potential in less than perfect items. Those thin magnets that come attached to the phone books? They would look cute Mod-Podged with old maps. And that wobbly dresser I plucked from a curb? It would be super easy to re-glue and turn it into something spectacular.

Your opinion you can keep - let's see some data

You know man, there's a lot of people who can think for themselves. If you really want to share this data and the data is factual, then post it, or link to it. What you've posted is a bit like an editorial. It's your take and I personally prefer to do the interpretation myself. I can tell you that the studio I moved in to in 1998 was priced at $725 then and it's being advertised at the low low p...explain this course of action though I can admire their committment to their chosen course of action regardless of it's financially unsound nature.
I must say the landlords aren't garnering a whole lot of goodwill these days. Hooray for Rent Control. Up with tenent rights and down with landlord tyranny. Speak your mind publicly or forever hold your piece (spelling intended).
