A Clutter-Free Home
Having lived in our house since 2005, I realized that we are still keeping a lot of things we don’t need anymore. Things we chose to keep because they have sentimental values. That coffeemaker we’ve been keeping on the kitchen counter? It was a wedding gift to us in 2004, but guess what — we’ve never used it. Not even once. It has just been collecting dust all these years.
We’ve already given away a lot of stuff over the years — curtains, bedsheets, old clothes, our very first TV, even old cellphones, baby strollers, cribs, walkers, baby clothes, shoes, 2 digital cameras, bags, etc.
But this year, I’d like to hold a garage sale for the first time. Yes, a garage sale!!! Why not, right?
I’d like to raise a little money for my home improvement projects this year.
Here are the items that I’m planning to sell:
Our old refrigerator (We already bought a new one last year) Our Samsung 29-inch CRT flat screen TV(we’re buying a 42-inch LED TV two weeks from now, using the money I saved as a freelance editor online.) DVD player Component
- My kid’s unused stuff toys (Gosh, they have tons!!!)
- My bags (slightly used and forgotten)
- Bed sheets
- My kids’ bean bag chairs
- My super old books (mostly romance novels)
- Some of my kids’ toys (I will definitely keep the useful and educational ones)
I still have to look around the house for more items. I plan to do it this summer so my son Greggy can also practice his basic arithmetic skills while selling goods.
What a bright idea! Hehe.
