to the pp having ebay issues... i did ebay before xmas and had nothing but issues with buyers. I was selling lego stuff.  I swore off ebay, never again.  after the fees, the paypal fees, the hassle, the mandatory returns etc it was not worth my time or the headaches.  ebay might work great for some people but the last few times ive tried it i've had nothing but trouble, headaches, complaints and those darn fees.

 

decluttered nothing new here, but am using yarn to make some wonderful projects... GO ME!

I agree.  Luckily I think the issue smoothed over.  (After I googled the problem and found a solution published by the company that made the product, sent her the link and then summarized the video on the link when she couldn't get the video to play. jaw.gif)

 

In the end it was worth it because I made back over $50, but I have definitely found smaller sales to be a waste of time.

I am also doing this challenge at work, but just using the grid sheet instead of listing.  I reached my first 100 things today and made space in a tiny but much needed storage cabinet and made 3 people happy with re-homed giveaways.  yay!

20 things from the freezer.  (been here a year, bought when moved in, never used.. time to toss them. counted each popsicle as one item)

1 outdated vaporub

4 more pantry items that have just been sitting there for too long (stale)

1 random kitchen find

 

I spent yesterday and today doing a deep clean of the kitchen. Everything is being re-washed, cupboards are being scrubbed/cleaned inside and out and items are being reshuffled to more appropriate spots. I'm no where near being done. I'm really methodical and pedantic when it comes to cleaning so it's taking sooooo long. I'll probably end up finishing tomorrow evening. It's already starting to look and feel like a brand new kitchen though, so I'm pretty happy! :)

That sounds great LoveOurBabies! You sound like me with your approach to cleaning, but I rarely undertake such a huge project, exactly for  this reason. I hope you have completed your project by now and are enjoying the awesome results.

 

 

I have spent a lot of time unpacking and organizing but not a lot of stuff left the house:

one frame - trashed

one picture mat - recycled

20 plastic bins and totes - sold ($21)

 

 

Total: 196 + 132(bottles)
