I did it! As of this morning I have finished month 6 of Clean Up Your Messy House. Ahhh, it feels good. The final challenge was to hold a garage sale which I totally gave up on after gathering all of my shit goods and looking over it all. It was wayto much to hold on to, after all that was the point of this. But, it wasn’t enough to warrant the work and the weekend sitting in the yard to try and sell it all. I opted to sell it to New Uses. A chain of stores around Columbus that buy your stuff on the spot.
Last night I loaded up my car and let me tell you, she was full. I had a lot to let go of. I lugged it all into the shop this morning and after about 30 minutes they offered me $61.50 for the lot of it*. Sold! I really didn’t care about how much they gave me for it, it was about getting it out of my basement. However, I’m not one to scoff “free money” so hell yeah, $61.50!
Now that my house is clear of the clutter I have to be honest. It is nice that the basement is organized. I love that I took control over a few other areas in the house that were not being used to their potential. But really, I don’t feel all shiny and new like Peter promised. It was absolutely worth the effort, for sure. Not so much with the life changing, as promised. Which is fine. I knew that I didn’t have the poster home for a clutter problem. I was just looking for some direction and a little push to get me moving. This did both.
I’m glad it’s over. Now on to bigger and better projects!
*some items they had enough stock in, microwave, pictures and other things that I will bring back in 2 weeks as advised so there is a little more earning potential.
