Hi everyone, you're doing great! I'm impressed to see the action here!
I have now repaired the shelf in the front hall closet and have begun re-organizing it.
As for E-bay, the progress I have made is reading up here on it. I have learned a lot. One person said that E-bay is only worth it if she is expecting a $10 or more profit. That's an important thing for me to note. That eliminates a lot of things. Also I was reminded of the importance of photos. I do not currently have a functional digital camera, so that may be job #1.
Here's a question for you: I have a lot of nearly new annoying baby toys, the electronic ones that sing songs and flash lights and all that stuff. I kept them up high and only brought them out for emergencies
so they are hardly used. I would like to get something back from them. I am gathering that Ebay may not the best market. Do you think consignment shops are worth it? I think that locally you have to do a lot of calling to see when the owner is in and a lot of driving, and I am just a bit stymied on pursuing that. But I am thinking, what the heck else can I do? WWYD?
Given that freecyle requires coordinating with folks, is there a more efficient way to think about freecyling? Like, only offering things that would not be sold in a thrift store (eg., I have a bunch of caffeinated teas, some opened, some not, and I have given up caffeine), only offering things in like-bunches, like toddler stuff, kitchen stuff, etc--and thrifting/tossing the small random stuff?
Yep, those are my basic categories, ebay, consignment, freecycle, thrift, throw-away. I want to make sure I've got the right idea for each category, and I am hoping to really move this stuff soon.
