Selling My Life…

Selling My Life – It Doesn’t Seem To Be Happening

I’m just about a year into this project and I’m about 10 months behind my imaginary schedule! I seem to always under estimate the time it takes to accomplish tasks. In the past year I have prepared my house for sale, lived in a house that was on the market for six months (if you’ve done this you know that you can’t really get anything done because you’re basically living in a museum and anything you do messes it up), packed up six bedrooms, three baths, an over sized garage and a storage unit full of inventory, moved to an unfinished home on 12.25 neglected acres, attended conferences and family gatherings, had visitors, traveled up and down I-17 more times than I care to count and managed all the daily tasks involved with selling online.  There’s one BIG thing missing from that long lists of accomplishments….getting stuff listed.

My 20 year old niece Megan is visiting from Idaho for about 8 weeks. I’m going to show her the ropes and teach her how to sell online. She’s been here for two weeks now and we’ve done A LOT of shopping and shipping. She’s been a great help and we are all geared up to get things moving on a regular schedule next week. We’ve got family visiting this weekend and we’re going to play. We drove about 10 miles to the town of Williams and strolled along the streets like the tourists that we are. I think we may even make a trip to the Grand Canyon tomorrow!  But next week we are all business! We’ve got pictures to take, Christmas stuff to sort and listings to get done!

The Laundry Room Decor

The Laundry Room Decor

I was determined to get all the decor from the laundry room listed and felt such a sense of accomplishment when it was done. The original idea of this blog was to post my listings every 4-5 days and give an update on the things that sold….well, when you’re not listings your personal belongings, you can’t blog about it. I’m determined to get my Christmas stuff listed in the next two weeks and am going to plot out a daily schedule to make it happen. I’m hopeful with Megan’s help (she really is a FABULOUS helper!) we can get stuff photographed and listed and I’ll have some great items to post and perhaps even some sales. In the meantime, here’s some of the Laundry decor that has sold already. I’m surprised at how much some of it sold for….but HAPPY I didn’t just dump everything at my local thrift store.

Here are some of the items I sold from my laundry room.
