I have to get rid of more than half of the things in this place before we move. I have alot of stuff I want to sell. I dont think a yard sale is a good idea, and I dont want to shell out the money to go to a flea market. I know I should post to craigslist but I just got stood up by someone who was buying something from me the other day, so Im still mad about it. I want to sell everything quickly, as much at one shot as possible. Any ideas?

Matt got paid today so the first thing we did was go out and buy a bunch of stuff… Now 99% of it was things we needed or that we were going to use, but now we are almost broke again, no bills are paid, and by the end of the weekend there will be no money left and 2 whole weeks to go before he gets paid again. We need so much but have so little comming in. I really need to find an income. Im going to wait till we move then make that a very high priority. I really hate feeling that need to buy things. I know having stuff does not define who you are, hell, I havent even gotten anything for myself in a long time( other than like toothpaste) but I still feel like there is so much that we need. Sometimes it feels so desperate.
I was thinking, after Gabriel my 3 month old grows out of the baby stuff I have for him, like the bassinet, bouncy seats, clothes, stuff like that, I WAS going to sell it but then today I thought how I KNOW there is a girl or young couple out there that has as little or less than MAtt and I and I thought maybe I would find that new mother and give her alot of the stuff I can spare. I want to have another child but most of the stuff I can replace later and it will be more fun that way anyway. Why pack it away in an attic to collect dust of get to smelling funky when someone could use it and love it the way I do. Maybe then I can tell this new mama when her little one has outgrown it, to please clean it and try to find another mama to use the things. Maybe its wishful thinking but then again maybe she will have the same feelings I have right now of wanting to help someone else out at this new point in their lives.
I am moving with my husband and baby soon. During this move I want to DECREASE the material objects I own, except for the necessities, things I really use or like, and things with sentimental value. I want to SELL these things and either bank the money or use it to buy QUALITY things, such as furniture, upgrades for our new home, things for my son. I want to start our new living space off with little to NO CLUTTER. Having space organized makes not only life more simple, but my head more clear. I could write tons more, but they are all tied together so Ill try just separating them so I am breaking my goals down into separate, more obtainable goals. LOOK! Im starting to simplify already. Yay me.
