Day 6 was pretty much the same as day 5,went through three more boxes and decided what I didn’t want.
When I first started the journey I told myself I wasn’t going to worry so much about HOW to get rid of stuff, I had general ideas, but I’m definitely going to change that approach. I’m actually planning on going through all of the boxes I went through already and filter out what I’ll donate and what I actually want to sell. The real turning point for this was when I found my old Nintendo DS Lite. I still had the box, charger, extra stylus, and instruction manuals, and I figured I could probably sell it for $50 on our local Facebook group. It’s like new, I had barely used it because not too long I got it I got my 3DS. Then I found some jewelry boxes and makeup bags, and inside almost all of then were trinkets. I started to ask myself, “Do I really want to mess with hundreds of these little trinkets for a swap meet?” In the end I decided, no, I’d rather sell the jewelry box they came in for $5 rather than charge 10 cents for each trinket. So, I’m going to go back and evaluate what I actually want to sell and what I just want to get out of my house! I have a feeling the boxes will fill up quickly with small things to donate.
What did I gain?
I gained the realization that even though I could get a little money for them, I don’t want to deal with small things that really aren’t worth much, and to help my journey progress I will just get rid of them.
