Craigslist

So the holidays are here and I am feeling a major urge to purge!  I can just feel all of the fabulous toys, books, clothes, etc. coming our way.  I envision it all sitting on my kitchen table and counter tops for days on end while I walk in circles feeling desperate for organization.  In my panic ridden state,  I am trying to calm myself by getting rid of excess clutter and get things organized before the avalanche of Christmas cheer comes our way!  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it all!  I am one of the culprits myself but I MUST be prepared!  Being prepared seems to always be my goal but I tend to fall short just near the finish line every time.  I will reach my goal this Christmas! I think I can!  I think I can!!

Entering stage left: Project Craigslist!!  Everybody has heard of Craigslist and most have checked it out or used it at some point.  For some, it is an obsession.  I have browsed through the toy and furniture section a time or two but have been a bit hesitant to contact a stranger and possibly meet up with them to purchase or sell a personal item.  I’m one of those frightful kind of girls.  I tend to think the worst until proven otherwise.  This is through life experience that I have become this way.  I like to call it “cautious.”  😉

My plan is to go through our house and sell anything I can find that we don’t need or use.  I hear you can sell pretty much anything on Craigslist so I’m gonna test it out.  I am starting with our old Christmas tree.  It is a mammoth to say the least!  It no longer fits in our living room due to all of our stuff!  It is 11 years old, we paid $139.99 for it and I am putting it up for $40.  As I type that I feel the sudden urge to lower my price to $20!  We all value our own stuff much more than someone else, right?

I did not post a picture because its old and the box is so ugly that no one in their right mind would buy it if they saw it!  Anyway, what do I have to lose?  I hope to make a few extra bucks so I can make some extra room to put more toys.  😉  I will be reporting my progress or massive failure so stay tuned!
