New Years Resolutions Update: April

This month, my resolution was to get rid of my junk.  I had an entire corner of my office that was overrun with stuff.  It was basically the spot where I’d throw anything that I didn’t want anymore.  It was a bit of a disaster, and this month I resolved to sort it out.

The first thing I did was to go through all the stuff with a critical eye.  I set aside the things that I thought that I could sell, and bagged up everything else.  Ross and I went for a drive and took about seven bags of clothes, toys and books to the op-shop.  With all those things out of the way, my office was already looking so much better!

Over the last month, I’ve been making a really concerted effort to sell the the rest of the things I’ve set aside.  I listed a few things on ebay each day, and sold loads of clothes, DVDs and books this way.  I even added a couple of special vintage items to my etsy store.

I still have a bit of stuff to get rid of.  Some things haven’t sold on ebay, but I don’t really want to donate them just yet.  In the next month or so, I’m going to look into getting a  stall at one of the trash and treasure markets that run locally.  Hopefully that will give me a chance to clear out even more of my things.

So I think it’s safe to say that April’s resolution was a success.  While I haven’t gotten rid of everything that I wanted to, I’ve made a good effort and I’ve got a plan in place to sell off those last few bits and pieces.

Would you like to give me a hand?  If so, there are a couple of ways that you can help out:

– Check out my ebay listings and put a bid on anything that you’d like.  At the moment, I only list items for sale within Australia, to save on postage costs.  If you live outside Australia, or if you’d like to buy something from me directly then just drop me an email and I’ll work something out with you.

– Visit my etsy store and have a poke around.  It’s filled with whimsical accessories, vintage clothing, customised clothes and winter warmers.  If you see something you like, you can use the code JUNKBEGONE to get a 15% discount on any purchase over $5.

DSCF3608I am so happy to have gotten rid of so much of my unwanted stuff.  It’s so cathartic to clear out the clutter.  Fingers crossed that I do just as well with next month’s resolution.
