You're VERY strong!

That's what the guy that came to pick up some of my stuff said.  This afternoon I put a bunch of stuff on Craigslist for sale/free.  One of the things was my set of lockers.  I helped heave them up the stairs and then through the yard in the rain... Apparently I'm VERY strong... yes... that is true... in more ways than one!

Amazing what you find you can push yourself to when you don't really have a choice.  I mean, I have a choice to throw myself under my blankies and hope for the best, but that's not really reasonable.  When I broke up with Pat, I had a new storage locker, plans and had already wanted to start packing his stuff out within the first week.  No different now, only I'm the master of my own destiny.
I made $60 today and I got rid of all my outdoor stuff (the guy came for the free garden stuff and bought my bbq and patio chairs and took EVERYTHING.... even stuff I would consider garbage... yup!  It was awesome.  And then the guy came to take my lockers and that's the end of stuff I want to sell... or so I thought.

While I was waiting around for these guys to show up, I started cleaning out a cabinet... and then a drawer... and then another cabinet... and I now have two boxes overflowing of items to go to my mom's for her garage sale.  And good stuff too... lots of stuff that will be suggested to go for free (like my collection of brand new, unsharpened novelty pencils).  But also some good quality stuff... winter clothes, hats, wallet, fitness stuff, camping stuff (don't get all excited Kathleen, it's just two cheapo plastic 'lanterns'... I never camped without you!)

It's INSANE how ruthless I am with stuff... 

RUTHLESS!  And strong! ;)

I love sorting through closets and getting rid of things I don't need/use any more. Good for you for actually trying to sell it - I usually just haul it all off to goodwill! ;)
