Decluttering Email and Website Accounts

How I’m “cleaning out” a domain I’ve had for 20+ years. I’m changing my email addresses, and also updating my hundreds of website accounts. To start it off, I combined all my address books / email contacts into one big list. Then, started to modify or delete website accounts to use the new email addresses. It’s a lot of work!

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.

Hoping this Minor Declutter Weekend Giveaway Works

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.

Generating Interest in Your Ad by Listing for Others

People often put stuff out on the curb without advertising it. You can easily spot this because the stuff just stays there for days on end, and it’s “good stuff”.

If it’s crap, you can’t tell, but if it’s good stuff, it’ll go.

Here’s an example of something good, that was left out up the street. I figured it could generate interest in my junk. It’s a little kiddie beemer:

I got nearly 20 requests for it before I even looked at a message. It was taken within an hour. I wish I snagged that and posted it for sale!

They also had a car seat that was gone within the day:

Meanwhile, I got two requests for my junk.

Let’s face some facts: people don’t want this furniture and wood stuff.

I am happy I got a couple requests.

I might need to sand down the nightstand and see what it looks like underneath the paint. That was my original plan. I think it could then sell for $10 or a bit more if they’re painted.

I know these items are good. They are quality. The problem is, people don’t know, and it’s only DIY-ers who can appreciate these items. By turning them into “retail” product, I should be able to dispose of them.
