Do you have a garage sale? How much have you made selling your items?

I usually give my extra stuff to the Goodwill.  I don't get any money, but I do get a nice credit for my end of year taxes.  Plus it helps people with job training.

I could certainly stand to get rid of some of my stuff.  Unfortunately, my son has the car he is working on in the garage and I can't get to any of my stuff.  He got the engine running and now it needs a transmission.

Ugh! Don't ask. LOL Having just gone thru packing and/or moving everything in my home...

We had a broken upstairs waterline a couple weeks ago and have moved temporarily while repairs are underway. Essentials went with us, everything else went into storage.

Hubby is very very convinced I have too much stuff! I'm inclined to think I need to thin down a bit.

Ironically, ten years ago I left my previous marriage with one antique desk & whatever clothes/keepsakes/etc that I could fit into the back of my truck. I very badly wanted away from the man and it just wasn't worth arguing with him over STUFF.

Apparently, I've accumulated more. LOL

I used to have yardsales, but now I just keep a "goodwill box" in the corner. When it's full, I put it in the car and drop it off.

I'm sort of a minimalist. But there is definately some stuff here that I don't think is necessary. Unfortunately, it doesn't belong to me. ha

I am a minimalist, so, I don't have things around that just sit and collect dust. I usually clean things out about twice a year. Spring and Fall, generally. We do NOT sell them. We give them away to other people or we donate them. Anything that's in my house at this point is used, so....yeah I need it.:)
