Looking Into The Past Won’t Make You Better Off Tomorrow
There’s treasures laying all around our homes, and the biggest issue most people have with selling stuff online is that they become too attached to old items. Yes, it’s good to reminisce at times when you go through a box of old items and sure, it might be okay to get a little nostalgic about those things, but looking backwards will not allow you to move forward. We tend to collect things in old boxes that have ‘sentimental’ value, and we find a cluttered place with a bunch of old junk because we’re afraid to get rid of it. If you’re looking to take a step forward, your mindset about how you feel about material objects that your mind has told you are important must change. Sure, you don’t want to throw away old family photos or things that are truly special, but items that remind you of a high school flame, or that one summer when you went camping at Yosemite are things that you need to let go.
I understand, $162 is not going to somehow magically propel me into a world of riches, but there’s great sense of pride and accomplishment in being able to sell old items that have disappeared into the depths of the linen closet. Instantly, a light bulb goes off in your head, and somehow it’s empowering and motivational. It’s a step in the right direction, and it’s a way to prove to yourself that there are real buyers, and real money on the other side of this computer screen. Time to start a mid-summer cleaning! Find those old items, put them up on Ebay, Amazon, or Craigslist and just go for it. It’s free to post your items, and you can charge the buyer shipping if you would like, so as soon as your items sells, it’s practically 100% profit and some real green that can go directly into your pocket.
