How many times do we see things at home that we don’t really need, but keep them “just in case” we’ll re-use them someday, or they’ll somehow become useful. I am one of these people that keep loads of useless stuff in their closet, believing that one day I’ll find a good use for them.
While this theory sometimes work, and sometimes I re-used some of the old stuff. But was it really worth keeping all these years? Most of the things I re-used, I could have bought on the spot when I needed them again for cheap prices. My point is; in the next few weeks, I will be trying to get rid of many of the things I own but have no use for.
As a traveler, albeit a totally broke one, I need this money! I don’t need my old desktop computer table, as I don’t own a desktop now! Same goes for my skateboard, as I quit skating (after severely failing at being a skater) since 2008!
What about my drum set? I still love music! Music is as important to me as food! But let’s face it, I am not that great of a drummer, even though I still believe I could have been one (would you let this one pass?) but I just never give it enough time – and after almost 10 years of postponing, I know I never will. And that drum set is eating up half of my room!
Plus, that is all just cash money being solidified in unused objects! Yes many of them hold precious memories for me, but the traveler inside me thinks it is better to sell these, travel and make new memories with that money!
And so, I decided that fate had it best, that I get these ideas now just as my family is moving into a new house, and all my stuff is packed in boxes. While unpacking, I’ll be discovering LOADS of stuff that I don’t really need, and I’ll be selling them! I’ll show you how many things you could be owning and don’t really need! Go dig under that bed or in those drawers that you haven’t opened in some years! 😉
My last confession for this post would be that I am not the best seller. I don’t know how to sell these stuff, and well, ebay doesn’t work in Egypt! And here came the solution, dubizzle! I am going to be placing ads for the things I don’t want to buy on dubizzle Egypt, experimenting with them, and we’ll see how much I can make from that!
