I need to raise as much money as I can to not only clear debt but so I can live and pay bills and I have come to realise that this is only going to be possible if I sell some of my stuff.
I don’t class myself as a materialistic person yet I’m finding the thought of selling some of my much loved stuff is proving to be quite heart breaking. A huge part of me is more than ok with it, it is after all only stuff and the money will be put to good use but a small part of me wants to keep it especially as there isn’t that much of it in the first place.
I have started to sort through my things and am creating piles of things to start off with that I don’t mind parting from. I’ve found though that a lot of stuff I have is from the kids which was kept for when they get older to decide what they want doing with it. My eldest has started this process but small boy is still small so I’m hoping he’s able to make the choice to start clearing so if/when we move whether it be through choice or not we’ve managed to clear debt and afford to financially move on.
So my next step will be setting up an eBay account. I’m still making hula hoops and have lots of old stock that I can sell first to pay off the more urgent bills and I’m also going to be selling a lot of my jewellery on there too, something which I didn’t really want to do but needs must.
I am also going to do research into the possible value of some if my things and put a reserve that’s appropriate on some.
This is all rather scary
