We recently had a death in the family. With all that is going on, the past few months have been, well, crazy and really, the last 5 years have been a constant grind, expense and emotional toll. (not writing this for a response to that, all good here and after another week or two all the paperwork and that stuff will be done too.) No, the gist of this thread is about the cleansing of stuff... the going through someone else's life (for the second time) and sorting their things and determining what to keep and what to sell is no fun. What is FUN is selling stuff on offerup and facebook marketplace. This is the point of the thread... many of the things that I am selling, I bought for this person, and I am taking huge losses on the items, but handing new people these things and getting cash money... it is PURE joy. today I sold an iphone to a nice lady and her daughter and they were so excited at the price and condition, and I had some nice money in my hands and it was just JOY. My wife and I are planning to sell whole collections of southwestern 'stuff' this weekend and we are SO looking forward to it... I wonder what it is about the human psyche that goes from grief to joy so dramatically even when one considers the losses that the sales contain? Or maybe it is just me!
