Back in April, I posted about a blog article called Adding Beauty to Your Life. What it boiled down to was how stuff doesn't necessarily add beauty to your life--especially if it's all crammed into a tiny sewing room!
Well, I still had a stack of things I wanted to sell on e-bay, but hadn't gotten around to listing. I listed 12 lots, and sold 6 lots. Five of my six buyers paid almost instantly. The other person? It's seven days later, and I still haven't heard "boo" from her. The thrilling part was that I was able to make a little money off of some books that were previously stacked in my sewing room. The frustration is over the person who hasn't paid yet! Not only did she win the bid, but she bid against someone who probably would have paid, and bid the item up way over it's value. I've listed quite a few things on e-bay over the last few years, and this is my first non-paying bidder. I guess it was just bound to happen sooner or later!
Now I just need to find a home for the six items that didn't sell (thrift store? Freecycle?) and get the stack of things out of our home office. Have you noticed that when you have a pile somewhere, that after a while you don't notice it anymore? Unfortunately, that's what has happened with this little stack! I need to finish my decluttering job!
