Yesterday afternoon reminded me why I don't really like selling stuff. I had two items in my Jeep to meet up with people... one bailed at the last minute, the other apparently doesn't own a tape measure or a ruler or have any idea what 8" looks like. No, an 8" tall kennel is not big enough to house train your dog even if it is a chihuahua. I even included my cat in the ad photo for size reference along with the actual measurements for those who are more visual. Everyone knows how big a cat is, right? Maybe not. I'm trying to sell a couple of (now empty - woo!) shelves too and the number of people who think a 6' tall shelf will fit into a small SUV... measure, people! It's not just my time you're wasting. While I was out and about, I did make a Trader Joe's run though so all was not wasted. =) I usually meet up with people just down the street at the post office for anything other than furniture and after yesterday's experience, I'm going back to that. I even had someone want me to load a cabinet/desk and meet her somewhere so she could look at it and decide if she wanted it. Um, no. Guess it doesn't hurt to ask though, right? lol
Last night, I read an interesting blog post on minimizing books. I'm still working on this area myself, but I'm getting there. Today is another step in the right direction. I'm now down to two tall bookshelves and counting. Yay for ebooks!
More books! Dropped off at Goodwill. As I was moving books from the shelf in the living room into the craft room, I was thinking, "Why am I keeping these?" Goodwill will be getting another box soon. =)
