Now that’s an idea!! Take all this stuff I have sitting in the darkest places and have a yard sale. You know what dark places I’m talking about. Yeah, the ones you never visit except those rare occasions when you’re looking for something from years past. I’m talking like the trunk of your car. I know, right? Yeah, that’s exactly where I keep our stroller I had to have! I had to have it so bad I sold my Miata as a down payment for it. I’m not even kidding. I suppose that now means my Miata (ex-miata) is sitting in the trunk of my car. Well, I still love our Bugaboo stroller but we’re not using it. I also have all the options and they’re all stowed somewhere in some other dark place.
The other dark places I’m talking about are the shed and the attic, at least in our house. I’m pretty sure we have yard sale worthy stuff in those places too. This means I’m going to have to actually get into those places. I know what you’re thinking, “Geez Josh, don’t you get into your shed to get garden tools for yard work?” Yeah, no. well that’s not totally true, I actually do the yard with a very strict routine and timeline. How’s that work? Well whenever the wife reminds me how awful it is I’m right on it. Yeah, this routine is actually tied to complaints as opposed to a timeline of sorts.
Anyway, we’ve got some stuff filling a bunch of places in our house and I guess our driveway too (in the trunk of cars) and the thought of actually having money is a bit more appealing. Now we could do an old fashioned yard sale but that would involve me having to do yard work and we’ve already covered that. Plus, it would involve me having to talk to our neighbors and really, isn’t living next to them enough? I mean now, we’ve gotta strike up conversation and explain why we’re selling the lamp and how we bought it on a trip to Europe where we paid top dollar and had it shipped over by a GPS traceable ship all the while explaining how we completely overpaid. This fabrication of course would be to help substantiate why we’re selling it way above what any reasonable human would pay. Yeah, too much work…
Fortunately, I can get away with taking some quick pics and posting them all on eBay. I don’t have to do any yard work, talk to any neighbors, make up any lies.
I never lie.
That’s not true.
Yes, it is.
Who was that? Wow, anyway where was I? Oh yeah, selling on eBay. Okay, I’m a procrastinator and I need short timelines or it’s just gonna be real hard to get done. So here it is. I’m having a virtual yard sale and you’re all invited. I’m going to get all this stuff sold before November is out. Wow, that’s some pressure I just put on myself but who cares. Now you may see another post from me about how I didn’t get to it but did get some really great pictures or about how I waited so long and still had to do yard work but I’m planning on selling on eBay nonetheless. No matter the outcome this stuff is going on eBay and it’s getting sold.
So here’s my promise to you. I will do yard work again.
Also? I’m going to have my virtual yard sale and I’m going to show you how I did it!
