I’m off to a great start on the decluttering goal.
Total items out of the house: 4/365
I freecycled an entire box of Daughter Person’s infant toys – soft balls, soft books, teethers, etc. I only counted that box as one item, but there were probably 15-20 toys in it. Little things that aren’t worth trying to sell on Craigslist.
I also freecycled an old bottle of Poly-Vi-Sol that we never opened and an old Star Wars doll my brother had given me almost 10 years ago. It was still in it’s box – although the box had seen much better days (the reason I went with Freecycle rather than eBay).
Finally, Dad bought a new laptop with his bonus in December, and I “sold” his old one on Gazelle for almost $200 – pretty good considering that I know we bought it for $700 about 4 years ago. (If you haven’t used Gazelle, it’s worth looking into for old Mac/iPhone/iPod items – I sent them a broken iPhone last year and got some money for it, and much easier than eBay/Craigslist).
I’ve listed some of the more expensive toys of Daughter Person that we want to get rid of on Craigslist, but no bites yet – those might just go to the donation pile.
