Today was an ass-kicker. I went through my clothes a few weeks ago when I did the summer to winter changeover. The weather has been so wonky that I waited until almost December to pack up the shorts. Can you say climate change? I donated the stuff that I didn’t think had any resale value and piled the rest in my office. I often consign clothes because it’s easy but I find that I end up using the credit to buy more clothes. The few places that give you cash upfront offer such pittances that I’d almost rather give stuff away. Then there is eBay.
Lonny makes a living selling stuff on eBay but I didn’t want to heap my stuff onto his already insurmountable pile of goods so I listed it all myself. Jesus, it took forever! Lonny warned me that lots of stuff doesn’t sell so I shouldn’t be too disappointed. He was itching to give me advice but like a three year-old I insisted on “Doing it self”.
If you are into Lululemon, 7 For All Mankind, X2 Denim Lab, Patagonia, prAna or Athleta, check out what I have to offer. Seriously, I don’t know how often I will do this. It took all day. Hopefully this experience will burn itself into my subconscious and I will think twice about an impulse buy or going shopping to fill some kind of void.
You will have to cut and paste the tinyurl I listed under each item if you want to see it on eBay. The auction expires Thursday, December 13th.
A friend gave me a 50% off coupon to use on whatever I wanted at Patagonia, no limit. I found myself buying stuff just because “it was such a good deal”.
Somehow this ended up in my office. My kids never wore it but it’s a great little jacket. This is the kind of stuff you find for free. FREE! in Boulder. People are so wealthy they just give this stuff away.
