Decluttering Furniture: Selling and Dumping

I don’t have a lot of nice furniture, but sometimes need to deal with it. You can dump it, or sell it. Almost everything can be sold, but the price might not be too high.

Giving Away Food on Facebook Marketplace, Metal on Craigslist, and Other Adventures in Curb Alerts

I listed this first on FB, then later on CL.

The first two contacts flaked out on me. In fact, I think they were fake profiles, because one of them vanished into the ether.

The third was for real, and they came by to get the food.

How I Declutter the Hoard with Ebay

My personal technique. It’s not quick, but fairly thorough, and produces some income and satisfaction. I’ll outline the process I use, using actual objects I’m considering selling.

Decluttering Orphan Socks

Some people declutter lonely socks easily: they aren’t paired, so they are no longer “really socks.” I can’t do that. I keep wearing them, mismatched. Once they start to get holes, then, I’ll use them as rags.

Consequently, I have too many socks. Here’s a hack to be able to “toss” more of them.

Black dots indicate that a sock is an orphan and worn out, so they can be decluttered.

Last Minute Curb Alert Worked!

Yesterday night’s post worked. Most of the stuff has been taken away!

Facebook Marketplace refused to allow the posting, probably because I had some crutches in there, and medical equipment is not allowed in their ads. It seems silly to me, but that’s what they do.

Despite that, Craigslist ZIP pulled through, and most of the things were gone when I went to check them at 10:15am.

This was stuff that didn’t sell on Ebay or Facebook, some junk I bought and no longer need, some useful things I no longer need, and some junk I just got for free.

I admit, it’s kind of pathetic looking, but there’s a few useful things in there.

Moving Sale (Old Photos from April 2017)

Back in 2017, I needed to move to make room for gentrification. So I put out a bunch of my stuff that I didn’t want to take to my new home. I started the process around three months before I had to move.

Initially, I sold stuff on Ebay and Craigslist. Then, as the items became fewer, I just gave them away.

Decluttering Vitamins and Drugs

It’s kind of against the law to give away these things. I think. I’m not sure.

It’s against Facebook’s rules, and they’ll flag your post.

Craigslist seems to be OK with it, if you mix it in with other things.

I posted this curb alert, and then added the pills in later.
