Overcome by peer pressure, I have tentatively decided to go the Yard Sale approach to de-junking, rather than using ebay. (What peer pressure? Not everyone who comments about my blog does so via the "comments" channel.)
So yesterday I began. I decided to sacrifice my kitchen/family room (it's one big long rectangle) and use it as a staging area. It's summer, so no one eats at the table anyway and we would all be better off with less access to the idiot box.
After 2 1/2 hours of grueling work, I managed to open and remove all the items from three boxes and spread them all over two long tables. At which point, I had to stop because I was hot, tired, hungry and late for work. (Yes, even though I freelance, I try to start my work day at a set time.)
Then I had to go eat a bunch of chocolate because I was so depressed.
At this rate, I can probably schedule my Yard Sale for August 11, 2010. Mark that on you calendars, please.
